While summer is clearly the hottest of the four seasons, for many people it is their favorite time of year. A time for summer breaks from school, vacations with family and many outside activities.  In the Northern Hemisphere, summer is defined as the months of June, July and August. However, in the Southern Hemisphere summer occurs during the months of December, January and February.

The summer solstice is the moment the Sun travels its greatest distance through the sky. This day of course has the most daylight of any other day in the year and therefore referred to by many as the longest day of the year. This actually marks the beginning of the astronomical summer, but we have already felt the warmer temperatures of summer for several weeks. July is typically the hottest day of the year because there is about a one-month lag between the solstice and the hottest temperatures.

As you shop for summer flowers and plants, below are some popular varieties to consider:

Lavender – A perennial plant the Lavender does best in a garden setting. It requires mostly sun.
Canna – The Canna is a tropical flower that blooms all summer. They cannot survive the cold of winter, so they have to be stored inside and replanted in the spring.
Salvia – The Salvia is a fragrant flower that pollinators love. It has flowers that are pink, purple and white.
Sunflowers – These are beautiful in a vase. Our Sunflowers are shipping directly from growers and are picked before insects or other conditions have caused any damage.
Daisies – The Daisy Flower is long lasting and a family member of the Chrysanthemum. There are many varieties and colors. Daisies make great bouquets and look nice in a garden.
Roses – There are countless varieties of roses. Our roses are fresh and beautiful. Nothing smells better than a fresh rose bouquet inside or on the patio.
Daylily – Flowers of the Daylily come in several colors and have ruffled petals. They require full sun.
Cuphea – Frequently referred to as the firecracker plant, the Cuphea is a hummingbird magnet. It has bright red and orange flowers and does best in full sun.
Marigold – Needing full sun, the Marigold is a longtime favorite flower. It is very durable and resists insects.
Fan Flower – A wonderful spillover plant, the Fan Flower needs full sun. It produces lovely flowers in colors of pink, purple and white.
Ranunculus – Resembling roses and peonies, the Ranunculus requires full sun. In extreme cold the bulbs can be stored indoors and replanted in the spring.
Portulaca – Very heat and drought resistant, the Portulaca is a low-growing succulent. It is best used in rock gardens and in full sun.
Lantana – The Lantana flower comes in yellow, purple and pink. It is extremely heat and drought resistant.  The sweet-smelling blooms attract butterflies and hummingbirds.
