The first colorful flower that we want to tell you about is Anemone. Anemone is a beautiful flower that is incredibly delicate and comes in a variety of different colors.

So it really is the perfect flower to plant if you are interested in adding colorful flowers to your garden. 

Anemone is a flower that comes with a very dark center. The center of the flower is almost black in color, and this gives these flowers a very unique appearance.

The dark center totally contrasts the bright colors of the petals, so no matter what color Anemone you plant, they will be incredibly striking in your garden.

If you want a bright-colored flower that is easy to plant, and even easier to care for, then Anemone is the flower you’ve been looking for!

2. Lantana

Another beautiful flower that we would recommend checking out is Lantana. Lantana is a beautiful bright flower that comes in a wide variety of colors.

This plant is particularly striking as you can get lots of different colors on just one plant, and this is fairly rare when it comes to colorful flowers. 

Lantana is the perfect flower to plant in your garden if you want a flower that grows in dense amounts. Once grown, Lantana is a very bush-like flower that can really become a focal point of your garden. It grows in large amounts, so it is perfect for larger gardens. 

If you are interested in flowers with red, pink, yellow, and orange petals, Lantanas are the flowers we would recommend planting in your garden! 

3. Dianthus

Alternatively, if you are interested in adding a variety of pink-colored flowers to your garden, then we would recommend checking out Dianthus. Dianthus are beautiful pink flowers that thrive when grown in groups.

So, they are perfect for anybody who wants to add a lot of pink to their garden. 

Dianthus flowers are a firm favorite of ours because of their full appearance. These flowers are fairly large and they are incredibly impressive to look at.

This combined with their bright appearance really makes them one of the most beautiful flowers. Especially when you consider the different shades of pink that can be found in their petals. 

Despite being truly striking, Dianthus aren’t as popular as they really should be. So it is likely that you have never seen these beautiful flowers before!

4. Clematis

The next flower that we would recommend checking out is Clematis. Clematis is a beautiful, bright flower that is more commonly known by the name “leather flower”. If you love purple flowers, then this is the type of flower you will be interested in!

Clematis flowers are truly beautiful, their petals grow in a very unique way and the center of these flowers is very striking. But the best thing about these flowers is the deep purple color of their petals.

There are very few flowers out there that are able to naturally achieve the purple tone of this flower, and that is why we love it!

If you loved the pink color of Dianthus, we’re certain you’ll love the purple ton of Clematis. The colors of these flowers complement each other perfectly which is why you should definitely consider adding some to your garden!

5. Celosia

Another beautiful colorful flower that begins with the letter “C” is Celosia. Celosia flowers are absolutely stunning, and they really could transform your garden.
