Summer’s Coming, Go Outside!

Is there any transition more glorious than the one from spring to summer? We here at Bagoy's Florist & Home think not. It's our pleasure to entice you with an early look at summer's floral bounty, featuring many of the flowers we fall in love with in spring. For sure, the two seasons share a lot of flowers in common (think hydrangea, iris and tulips), but in summer, we tend to see more assertive, richly-colored blossoms. There are those hammy showstoppers, sunflowers, and then there are those flowers that seem overdressed for the occasion (we're looking at you, zinnias). We have towering snapdragons, delicate garden roses and pretty petunias. Summer's a showcase for gorgeous flowers. In honor of our trees starting to show green here in Anchorage, we're giving you a glimpse of what's to come. Read More about Summer’s Coming, Go Outside! »

Flowers for a Front Porch Butterfly Garden

We love Alaska in summer - the gorgeous colors, the fields of flowers, and the vibrant sunshine all beckon us out to the most beautiful days of the year. If you want to add even more interest, color, and beauty to your personal home and property, how about a butterfly garden? You can start with the floral professionals at Bagoy's Florist & Home. Butterflies are found throughout Alaska, from sea level to towering mountaintops. Some butterflies visit our state this time of the year, while others are native. The nectar of flowers is food for butterflies, and providing an abundance of these will ensure that your butterfly garden is the most popular spot in the neighborhood. Butterflies can get sustenance from most flowers, but each species has its preferred blooms, which are generally plants native to the region.
