Plants and Sun Botany
Name: Alex B.
Can you tell me some of the plants for the long day
plants, short day plants, and day neutral plants?
The days are short in the spring and fall, so any plant that blooms then is a short
day plant. For example: daffodils and tulips and crysanthemums. Long day plants are
those that bloom in the summer, ie. daylilies, phlox, black eyed susans, coneflower.
Day neutral plants bloom at any time.
