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 second page of the summer flowers. Flowers in these pages have been taken from my garden and the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis. Summer flowers must include water plants such as lotus and water lily. Zinnia is very easy to grow and you should have this annual in your garden. I also include some wild flowers that attract bees, and some butterflies on flowers in my garden and on some wild flowers. Enjoy the Summer flowers and don't forget to share them with your friends.
