Flowers That Will Keep Blooming All Summer



As soon as the weather starts getting nice everyone wants to spend some time in their yards soaking in the sun. For that, you’re certainly going to want to have a garden that looks great all summer long!


Here are some of the best flowers you can plant in spring for that beautiful pop of colour all summer long!


Marigolds


Marigolds are known as one of the easiest annuals to grow and care for. That, coupled with their ability to bloom in bright shades of orange and gold make it the perfect flower to plant for a colourful garden.


“Your first flowers should appear within a matter of weeks and will last into autumn.” - Reader's Digest


Sunflowers


Sunflowers are a classic and sure way to give your garden a punch of colour and height. As such big and tall flowers, they provide colour in your garden at heights that would otherwise be left empty.


“Sunflowers are one of the most iconic flowers. They boast stunning visuals whilst still being very easy to care for.” - Dash Lawn Care


Sunflowers are susceptible to lots of diseases and need lots of sun, so make sure you know how to care for the species of sunflower you choose before you plant it.


Lavender


Lavender provides both colour and fragrance to your garden all summer. Not all lavender varieties bloom all summer. Some kinds bloom early and then are finished. Others don’t bloom until the fall. Make sure you pick out a kind that will bloom for the entire summer.


“Lavender is a tough, dependable woody perennial that will last for several years under the right conditions. Because of its Mediterranean origin, lavender loves blazing hot sun and dry soil. If your lavender doesn’t thrive, it’s most likely due to overwatering, too much shade, and high humidity levels.” - Garden Design


Coneflower


These beautiful flowers will fill your garden with pinks, whites, and purples all summer. Typically, coneflowers will be at their best blooming stages from June to October depending on the weather that year. They thrive off of the bright summer sun and attract insects that are beneficial to your garden’s health, like soldier beetles.


“Coneflowers typically bloom from June through August on plants that grow 2 to 5 feet in height. They will benefit from division every four years or so but are otherwise very low maintenance.” - The Spruce


Make sure you plant the right flowers that won’t leave your garden brown after they bloom in the spring or flowers that will wait until the summer is almost over to appear. The only thing nicer than the summer sun is having a beautiful, colourful garden to enjoy it in.
