Popular summer flowering plants

Be a smart shopper! Many people buy plants that have been force grown and are on sale, and in flower, at the wrong time of year. They quickly fade just when they should be getting interesting!

Buy plants because of when they should flower not just because they are in flower. Below is a list of popular summer flowering plants. Summer flowering plants are usually planted in spring (or, even better, the previous year) to ensure they have time to establish.

Remember to keep your summer flowering plants well watered or your display may be lost in the summer heat.
