Summer is a time of beauty and abundance in the garden. Summer flowers are mostly perennials, annuals and tropical plants.
You can enjoy daylilies in July and many other perennials such as black-eyed susan, daisy, phlox, hibiscus...
Annuals need to grow every year in the spring mostly from seeds. Flowers such as petunia, begonia, marigold...produce carpet of color for the summer.
This is the first of two pages about the summer flowers. Flowers in these pages have been taken from my garden and the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis.
