Blossoms that never end…or at least last as long as possible. Many of us want that, especially in our own garden. Perennial, flowering plants that are also easy to care for are considered the best allies here. These not only give you a magnificent feast for the eyes, but are also suitable for absolute beginners in the field of hobby gardening. We provide you with 10 of the most beautiful and easy-care flowering perennials, which will accompany you with their blooms all summer long.
Magnificent Spiers – Astilbe
Arbors of different colors are a brilliant choice for the summer garden. They grow relatively tall and add some height to the whole flower arrangement. Her feathery flowers look beautiful and dance charmingly under the gentle breeze. These flowering perennials have a very pleasant and well-defined scent and are therefore particularly recommended for seating areas in the garden.
The tall, cone-shaped flowers of the blue lupine are also a really good choice for adding color to your garden that will last all summer. They are often found in gardens intended for country style planting. These flowering perennials are very easy to grow from seed. Sow in small pots in summer and plant out the following summer for a long lasting bloom.
Large-flowered forest lily
The flowers of the large-flowered forest lily, also known as the white trillium, appear in late spring and show elliptical-shaped flowers against dark green foliage well into late summer. The leaves are also edible, making them a great addition to your vegetable garden and giving you months of flowering time.
Yarrow is another perennial that will bring you blooms all summer long. The tiny white, yellow, rosy, or purple flowers grow in clusters perched atop long, delicate stalks. They bring fresh accents to your garden and are very healing, especially in their white version.
The yellow coneflower (Rubeckia) is also called brown-eyed Susanne. The plant has delicate, yellow, daisy-like petals surrounding a dark black center. They are perfect for adding a real pop of color to flower beds or containers. The best thing about it: Rubeckia is quite hardy and can easily overwinter in the garden in our latitudes. It is also considered to be very robust and easy to care for.
Flame Flower – Phlox
The dazzling red or pink blooms of the phlox are another excellent addition to any summer garden color scheme. The stunning blooms last around 3 months and will fill your outdoor space with bright colors all summer long. They also give off a delicious scent that is attractive to both humans and pollinators.
Fragrant Carnation – Dianthus
Another great perennial for summer-long color is the fragrant carnation (Dianthus). These alpine plants are super easy to grow from seed and will produce beautiful buds in shades of pink, white and red. Similar to Sedums, Dianthus are fairly drought tolerant, making them a good choice for gardens that get plenty of sunlight throughout the day.
Maideneye – Coreopsis
A really good choice for garden flowers, the Maideneye (Coreopsis) displays its vibrant bright yellow flowers from late spring to late summer. The petals of each flower have a slightly jagged appearance around the outer edge, adding even more interest to the look. These flowering perennials are also very easy to grow from seed, giving you plenty of plants for a modest cost.
Bleeding Heart – Heart Flower
This unique flowering perennial is one of the most charming of our favorites. Her botanical name is Dicentra spectabilis. Like others Dicentra this ever-blooming option has sweet, heart-shaped pink flowers that last from late spring or early summer through fall. This plant is excellent for borders but also works well in planters and thrives in partial or full shade. The soil should be well drained.
This long-blooming perennial produces deep-set, brightly colored reddish or purple flowers from June to September. In warmer gardens in general, the perennial is hardy and generally considered trouble-free. It likes full sun and has a relatively high drought tolerance.
Perennials are real garden treasures. Pick those you like the most and invite them to your outdoor oasis. You will not regret it. Promised!
