What flowers or plants grow well in Denver?

Thumbtack Editors

There are many plants and flowers that grow well in Denver's climate. Russian sage’s purple blooms and low watering requirements make it a popular choice. Yellow alyssum is a perfect flower for providing some late-spring yellow cheer, while zinnia is popular for producing bright, beautiful flowers. The columbine is also perfect for the climate and is easy to nurture (plus, it’s the state flower).
