To have flowers on the table every day in the year is a dream of beauty that can be realized in South Dakota. It is done with bulbs during the winter and early spring, perennials in the spring, summer and fall, and annual flowers and summer bulbs during the summer and early fall. During the past twenty-nine years at this station, the writer has experimented with hundreds of varieties of these various flowers. A brief account of the main successes will be of interest for the prairie planter at this time. The flower specialists would like a full account of the failures as well, but this would not be as interesting to read as an account of the successes.
