Greetings from Flagstaff, Arizona, I'm Kathee Rose

    Welcome to the Flower Listing Online RetrievAL  (FLORAL) System of Kathee's High Altitude Floral Collection of Flagstaff, Arizona.  FLORAL is designed to be used by gardeners who grow flowers, from the beginning gardener to the master gardener, who live in locations above 5,000 feet.  For instance, have you ever wanted to know which perennials will grow at a high elevation in a sunny location during the summer?  Or which tall alpine annuals will grow in a shady location in the spring?  These are the kind of different categories you will find on this Web site to assist you.  Just click above on the category of flower you want to retrieve and it will link you with the flowers in that category.

    To assist you further, within each category  is a picture of the flower, a listing of the Common Main Entry name, listing of  it's Synonym, a Bloom Time category (spring, summer, fall), whether it is a Bulb or Seed, Sun or Shade requirement, and whether it is a short, medium or tall stemmed flower.  The height of the stem can help you in not only planning your garden design, but also in giving you varities of height for flower arrangement. For your convenience, a glossary is included to define some of the terms used in the collection.
