Companion flowers for vegetables in our organic Arizona rasied garden beds

Here are just a few pictures of some of the interesting companion flowers for our organic vegetable garden. They are great to look at because they add a huge punch of color to your yard and/or garden. In addition to looking great, they attract what is called beneficial insects. Beneficial insects are insects that you attract to your yard via different kinds of flowers & wild flowers, which in turn helps your garden vegetables stay healthy and strong since these beneficial insects will destroy the so called "bad bugs" who are preying on your garden!

Beautiful pink and white cyclamen plants.
