These cheery blooms are easy to grow, require minimal care once established, and yield plenty of flowers for cutting. For quick arranging into a casual bouquet, like the one shown here, place large sunflowers in container first. Then add cockscombs, a great filler that provides texture. Tuck in as many zinnia blooms as possible and finish with small gomphrenas flowers to accent.
