What's In Bloom

June into July is a wonderful time of color for both perennials and annuals.

Perennials (and Roses) for Full Sun

The beauty of perennials is they grow into their space over several seasons. Most do not bloom 'all summer' so plant some with different bloom times as well as interesting foliage to be a 'back-up singer' to later stars. Some will expand through trailing rhizomes or spreading roots while others spread from the center into ever larger clumps. When they've gone beyond your 'boundaries' you can divide them and put them elsewhere in your garden or of to a friend's.

Annuals for Full Sun

These annual flowers will bloom all summer when receiving more than 6 hours of direct sunlight. Hanging baskets and containers in full sun will need watering more often than annuals planted in flower beds. Plan to get familiar with the plant's particular needs in your location.
