Brighten Your Garden With These Seasonal Plant Selections

Summer is a time to gather friends and family for outdoor experiences in the lush greenery of your garden. The right plants can captivate your garden, drawing in admirers who marvel at its beauty. But when it comes to choosing the perfect seasonal plant selections, it can be tricky. Luckily, the experts at Freddy & Co. will guide you through the best plants for an eye-catching summer garden to brighten your outdoor space.

Colorful Flowers and Foliage

For a show-stopping look, consider annuals like zinnias and marigolds. These colorful flowers can create a cheerful splash of color in the garden while adding texture and dimension to the landscape. If you’re more interested in foliage, try ornamental grasses like muhly or fountain grass. These graceful plants provide an elegant presence in the garden, creating a calming atmosphere.

Climbing Vines and Shrubs

If you want to add charm to your outdoor space, consider planting climbing vines like morning glory or clematis. They can climb trees or walls with beautiful foliage and blossoms of blues, purples, and pinks. Or, for more visual interest, plant shrubs that flower in different shapes and colors, like hydrangeas, rhododendrons, and azaleas.

Water Lilies and Aquatic Plants

Adding a water feature to your garden is also a great way to create interest. Consider adding a small pond or fountain as the centerpiece of your outdoor space. The sound of running water will add an inviting atmosphere while providing another opportunity for lovely plant life to thrive. Try planting water lilies and other aquatic plants around the perimeter of your pool for a tranquil feel.

Regardless of your choice, seasonal plant selections can be the perfect way to bring life to your garden and help it thrive this summer. With these tips in mind, you’ll have no trouble creating an enchanting atmosphere that will make everyone admire your outdoor paradise.
