Clemson Flowers

Hi! I'm Emily :) I moved to Clemson in 2000 for school, fell in love with the people and the town, and spent 10 amazing years in the town we all love that so many call our home away from home. This spring I am living in an apartment in Chattanooga, TN, and will be moving into my first house this winter!! I have spent A LOT of time planning for next year's garden, and I'd like to share some of the plants & flowers I've found that make me think of Clemson.

I've divided this into two groups. Plants I think would make nice Clemson themed gardens, and fall blooming plants that would make for great cut flowers to take to tailgates or have around for football parties. I've linked to websites that give what I consider to be good plant info sources - ideal growing conditions, planting instructions, bloom times etc.


Spring & Summer Blooms

Common Orange Tiger Lily & Double Tiger Lily

Morning glories & petunias are also common and easy to grow annuals that come in great purple and white combinations that can be mixed with orange plants of different heights for a really pretty effect!

*I just got some of the poppies, and I can't wait to see how they do!

Football Season Blooms

I think a lot of these flowers can be mixed & tied together in simple mason jar arrangements with a little ribbon for easy to transport tailgate flowers.

I hope you've enjoyed these pictures as much as I do. As long as you remember to water, we still have a few good weeks of planting time. If you have any favorite Clemson flowers, please let me know. I'm still looking for fun things to plant next spring :) Happy Gardening!!
