Nothing’s more attractive than a garden filled with gorgeous summer flowers and enticing aromas.

Take out the flowers and you’ll be left with nothing but a colorless field. That’s why expert gardeners consider flowers as the life of a garden. Without them, a garden is like a rainbow without colors.

If you want to ensure the life of your garden can withstand the heat of solstice, here are 6 gorgeous summer flowers to plant in your Kensington garden.

 

1. Lavender

 

If you’re looking for a flower that’s also a herb, lavender may just be the one for you.

 

It thrives in well-drained soil and areas with a lot of sunshine, which is why it’s perfect for planting in summer.

 

It has a strong, irresistible scent like a fresh cologne that will attract not only people, but also pollinators necessary for other plants in your garden to thrive.

 

 

2. Gloriosa Daisy

 

Gloriosa daisy, more commonly known as black-eyed susans, blossom from around midsummer up to the first fall frost and comes in a ton of varieties.

 

In other words, you get to choose from a wide variety and the flower lasts year-round — and that’s not all.

 

Two more reasons you may want to buy gloriosa daisies are:

  • They attract butterflies.
  • They are only 2 to 3 feet tall, making them easy to see in almost every part of a garden.

 

 

3. Lisianthus

 

Do you like white roses?

 

If so, you will love this flower which looks similar to roses but is much taller.

 

Lisianthus is an annual plant that thrives in full sun and well-drained soil. It requires a lot of care, but it’s totally worth it as it can grow up to 40 inches!

 

So if you’re looking for a tall flower that looks and smells like roses, this is the one for you.

 

 

4. Coreopsis

 

Coreopsis are for those of you who love butterflies and the color yellow, as this yellow flower shines bright like the sun in summer and attracts more butterflies than any other plant.

 

It’s a small flower that typically grows up to about 3 feet tall and covers only 16 inches of the ground, so it can fit in easily with other plants in your garden.

 

What makes this flower a great choice for summer is how gorgeous it looks under sunshine.

 

 

5. Dahlias

 

Once considered a vegetable, Dahlias is one of the most popular summer flowers today.

 

People love this flower for two main reasons:

 

  1. It’s a big flower that can grow as tall as the average person and as wide as a dinner plate.
  2. It has the biggest color range, including every color except the blue, which people are trying to create today.

 

If that’s not enough to convince you, another plus of this flower is that you can also say you have Queen Victoria’s favorite flower in your garden.

 

 

6. Foxgloves

 

Do you want to make a statement with the flowers in your garden? Then consider foxgloves which are bright pink flowers that can light up your garden like none other.

 

Foxgloves is the perfect flower for improving the appearance of your garden because it is tall, slim, and it shines as bright as a sparkling gem under the summer sunshine.
