Summer is the season of perpetual blooms and harvests. We hope you will find plenty of flowers on this list for your gardens. Whether you are looking for a seasonal pop of color or something to transition your garden from a vibrant summer to moody autumn, you can find it all here. Fill your home with the scents of nature with popular summer blooms such as lavender, carnations, delphinium, dahlias, or sunflowers! Don’t forget to add some unique types, like Bells of Ireland, for a fresh flare of light green to offset any vibrant mix of colors.
While fruits and vegetables are important, they perform best when grown amid a variety of flowers. Attract beneficial pollinators and insects by planting flowers throughout your garden. We would love to see what you choose! Please share your selections online by tagging @TrueLeafMarket on Facebook and Instagram.
