Asters are bright and cheery perennials that thrive and bloom nearly all summer-long. They are available at most local nurseries and come in 1-gallon cans. They come in a large variety of colors such as lavender, pink, or white.
2. Gloriosa Daisy
A lovely twist on the traditional daisy, this flower has a deep golden hue on its pedals that radiate from a warm chocolate center. They can reach up to 4 feet tall; so only place them where you need the height. There are shorter varieties available such as the “Goldilocks” and “Toto” that grow to a maximum of 10 inches.
These are large blooming flowers that radiate a bright yellow. They are a defining summer flower as they are bright, cheery, and light. They have double and semi-double flowers that bloom all summer on little water! They are perfect during a dry season.
These are some vibrant blooms that grow from tuberous roots. They come in a large range of colors such as red, yellow, and cactus-flowered variety. They do require some light shade but otherwise thrive in the hot summer season.
5. Purple Coneflower
These daisy-like flowers are incredibly charming with their rosy hue and orange centers. They stand a bit tall at four feet but make for a great summer blooming flower.
