Annual Summer Plantings

Annual plants are those that grow, bloom, and die in one growing season. These types of plants are perfect for adding seasonal bursts of color to your landscape. Here are some popular choices for annual summer plantings:

  • Geraniums: These beautiful flowers come in a variety of colors and are very easy to maintain. They thrive in full sun areas and can be planted in containers or directly into the ground.
  • Petunias: Another popular choice for summer annuals, petunias come in various colors and sizes. They prefer full sun but can tolerate some shade as well.
  • Marigolds: These bright orange and yellow flowers add a pop of color to any landscape. They are easy to grow and can withstand hot temperatures.
  • Sunflowers: A staple in many summer gardens, sunflowers not only bring beautiful vibrant colors but also attract pollinators to your garden.

Container Planting Options

If you have limited space or want to add some color to your patio or balcony, container planting is the way to go. Here are a few options for annual summer plantings in containers:

  • Calibrachoa: Also known as million bells, these small bell-shaped flowers come in a variety of colors and are perfect for hanging baskets or window boxes.
  • Coleus: This unique plant comes in various patterns and colors, making it a great choice for adding some visual interest to your container garden.
  • Begonias: With their bright and colorful blooms, begonias are perfect for containers. They also thrive in shady areas, making them a versatile option for any space.
  • Fuchsia: These delicate flowers add a touch of elegance to any container garden. They prefer partial shade and can be grown in hanging baskets or containers with good drainage.
