I have lots of flowers in my vegetable garden, not because I plant them, but because I let the ones that come up go to seed. I used to think of them as eye candy, then I realized that their vibrant colors probably attract more pollinators to the area than the standard yellows and whites of the veggies. Hollyhocks and snapdragons blossom all summer.

Love in a Mist has a short bloom time but end up staying almost all winter because of their interesting seed pods. They are a dried floral delight.
