This year, summer has gone by so fast. It’s almost unbelievable to think that autumn is almost upon us. It’s all the more reason to make the most of your favourite summer flowers before the season comes to an end! If you are not sure what types of flowers you should choose for your home, here are some of the top suggestions.
The dahlia is one of the most impressive of all summer flowers. They are available in several vibrant colours and they have an amazing visual texture. These flowers are part of the Asteraceae family which also includes sunflowers, chrysanthemums and daisies. They can be enjoyed on their own or, if you prefer, you can add just a few stems to a mixed bouquet and it will make a fantastic difference.
If you want flowers that are easy to grow year after year, marigolds are the answer! If you have just one marigold plant in your garden, you can harvest the dried up flowers and save these seeds for the following year. Make sure that they are not planted too deep in the soil and don’t forget to water them regularly. You will soon have several plants and you can harvest even more seeds the following year! Once harvested, spread the seeds out and allow them to dry properly before you store them in a container for the following summer. If you do this, you will always have bright and colourful summer flowers in your garden!
There are hundreds of types of jasmine species and these summer flowers are known for their sweet and powerful scent. They usually produce white or yellow flowers. In some cases, you may find one that produces pink blooms. The leaves can be evergreen on certain plants while others are deciduous.
If you want summer flowers that will make a real impression, you can’t go wrong with sunflowers! They are large and bright which is why they are associated with this time of year. They are one of the longer bloomers so you will also be able to enjoy them into the autumn season. While they are often used in summer arrangements, they can also be added to autumn bouquets consisting of seasonal colours like orange, brown and dark green.
There are dozens of varieties of lilies available and many of them have the most amazing scent. They can be displayed all on their own or you can pair them with other blooms like roses. If used in a mixed bouquet, these summer flowers are often used as the focal flowers in the bouquet with smaller blooms as mass and filler flowers.
