Add Color To Your Summer Garden

Add Color To Your Summer Garden

LaRene Bautner from Millcreek Gardens talks about adding summer color with flowers, berries and foliage
Even with the hot weather, there is still plenty of summer color. Flowers. Berries. Foliage.

For a tropical feel try Hibiscus…here are two (2) types: Hibiscus Syracius also known as “Rose of Sharon”. These new varieties brings an island feeling to your home. Bali , Hawaii, Fiji.

The Hibiscus also known as Mallow has incredibly large, beautiful blooms on showy foliage. This variety is called “Copper King”.
For more fun with foliage try Staghorn Sumac – “Tiger Eyes”.

Another foliage that will flower later is Stonecrop “Sunsparkler Dazzleberry.”

Hypericum/St. John’s Wort has beautiful berries in “Pumpkin” or “White.”

You can’t go wrong with summer blooming Goldstrum/Black eyed susan.

For spires of fragrance, Agastache/Hummingbird Mint “ Summer Raspberry.”

Lastly Guara/Indian Feathers “Passionate Rainbow” has reddish foliage that will later be topped with airy pink and white blooms.

On a closing note, don’t forget to take care of your lawn. Milgorite is an organic fertilizer to apply now that your lawn will thank you for.
Every Day is a Great Day at Millcreek Gardens!
