The 6 Best Flowers To Plant In Summer
Lantana is a perennial flowering plant that comes in a variety of colors. They love direct sunlight and grow rapidly, making them perfect for a summer garden or landscape. Perennials last over the winter season and come back each year, so you only have to plant your Lantana once.
Succulents are beautiful cactus-like plants that come in an array of shapes, sizes, and structures. Some are flowering but all look incredible in hot climate landscaping and gardens. Succulents love hot air and sunlight and are resilient to drought conditions as they store water in their leaves. They do not fare well in freezing temperatures and must be covered and moved indoors before the first fall freeze.
Lavender is a beautiful plant that produces vibrant tiny purple buds on top of its long stalks. Lavender has been known to help with sleep and the flowers can be picked and dried to make sachet bags for under your pillow or in clothes drawers for a lovely smell and aroma.
Cuphea originates in Mexico and is also heat and drought-tolerant. They produce a fiery red flower in the shape of a skinny bell. Their nectar attracts hummingbirds and they are brilliant for any garden or landscape in the south.
Peonies can bloom for decades with the right care and maintenance. They produce large, fragrant flowers that are perfect for vases in your home. They love full sun and are perennials.
Also known as “mums” these beauties will flower in spring, summer, and fall. They come in a variety of colors and shapes and look fantastic planted in pots, in gardens, or in landscaped areas.
