Flowers need to add curb appeal through the summer

Onme of the issues for many gardeners is getting the mix right throughout the year of flowering plants. Perennials are great, but they often bloom and then leave you with a bed of greenery and nothing else. Annuals help out adding color, but sometimes it is just a mater of doing some research and mixing what you plant to flower at different times. Harder said than done but one of the flowers we have admired over the past few years when our yard is looking kind of drab was "Canna Lillies". canna lilly

This one is just beginning to flower, as you can see the leaves add their own color to the picture, but the blooms are terrific. I of course take no credit for this, it is all Trudy's work, other than to say I kept reminding her to plant some of those canna lillies this year.

HI NICK AND TRUDY!  Nice flowers -- in AZ it's pretty hot and plants with color don't make it long!  But there are other options to add curb appeal that bring color to keep curb appeal in tact!

Nice flowers. I had a woman buy plastic flowers to dress up her house. After it sold the new buyers kept the plastic flowers for years.

Plastic flowers sounds awful.

Gabrielle we have had it very hot and humid here for several weeks, and very dry, all our plants are suffering right now.
