About Online Flower Garden & Dino

I am a flower enthusiast and a gardener at heart. Ever since childhood I loved reading about plants and started gardening at an early age. First by helping my father in the garden and later managing a large garden myself in my teen years. I planted and cared for a large number of plants, flowers, and trees both outdoors and in a greenhouse. To this day I enjoy visiting gardens and parks and learning about new and old specimens and varieties of plants.


  1. I’ve just been given a Bidens Blazing Glory. From what I’ve read it’s an annual. I live in zone 4A in Canada and am wondering if it would survive being planted outside in the winter, or if I should keep it inside and maybe trim it back a bit. Any suggestions you can give would be most appreciated. Thanks.

    • Hi Elaine, Bidens Blazing Glory has beautiful and colorful flowers but it is well suited to zones 9-11, as a perennial. In all other locations, it is grown as an annual, so if you would like to hold on to it for longer than one season then I would suggest growing it indoors or in a greenhouse. That does not mean that when it is warmer you cannot move it out in its container. I believe zone 4a temperatures drop to -25°F to -30°F and Bidens won’t survive that. You can always grow it from seeds or cuttings for each season if you like.
