  6. Chrysanthemums: Chrysanthemums, or mums, are hardy flowers that last a very long time and are also budget friendly. They also come in various colors and sizes and are an amazing alternative to dahlias.

  7. Sunflowers: Sunflowers are not only beautiful but also durable and can withstand various environmental conditions.
