One of my favorite plants for summer flowers is Hydrangea, also known as the Queen Anne’s Lace. This exotic plant has around 23 different species of plants, climbers and shrubs, and is most popular in Asia and North America. In this article I’m going to be discussing specifically about the Hydrangea with a mop-headed summer flower, which is native to India. We’re going to talk about the benefits of planting this type of flower garden, as well as how to care for your Hydrangea flower garden. Let me know what you think!
To begin with, this plant is a beautiful and striking aquatic plant. It blooms in the summer with numerous blue flowers. You can easily notice the Hydrangea throughout the Indian subcontinent and across the Himalayan Mountains. They grow well under wet conditions, and even in droughts! The Hydrangea mimulus prefers nutrient rich soil that is slightly acidic, but other species do very well with pH levels of 7 or below. The mimiculus prefers full sunlight to light shade, so if you plant them in a shaded area they will not bloom as well as other plants in the same spot.
Blue flowers are what make up the majority of this amazing plant, and it comes in a number of different forms. If you prefer, you can easily separate the flowers into clumps by carefully snipping off the petals. Planting the flowers will be a breeze as long as you prepare the area correctly. Keep in mind that if you live in an area where there is a lot of shade and rainfall you should place your Hydrangea cottage garden in an area where the flowers come out at night.
One great way to showcase your Hydrangea cottage garden is by using black and yellow creeping plants. These are not actually climbing plants, but rather they form a semi-translucent carpet effect when they crawl along the soil surface. Plant them on top of the foliage of your existing plants to bring out the colours of your flower beds. Once the plant roots have begun to develop they will push the existing foliage upward, and as the new foliage begins to emerge you will see the beautiful array of colour running down the plants.
If you are looking for plants for summer flowers that have an awesomely gorgeous look, then you may want to consider planting a shrub. Shrubs are great because they grow well in any sort of climate, and are a wonderful accent to your flowerbeds. However, certain shrub species do better than others in certain climates. For example, the Papaver somniferum grows really well in southern states, while the Phyllanthus niruri does not do so well in the same environments. Knowing the type of shrub you wish to plant can help you choose plants that will grow well in your area.
An important consideration with plants for summer flowering is whether you wish to have a plant that’s self-sustaining or one that needs to be watered. Self-sustaining flowers include such oddities as the water lettuce and the ephedra, which can grow almost entirely on their own. However, the most popular flowers for summer flowering are those that need to be watered. This includes such lush blooms as the quark and the ephedra.
Plants for summer also include the many varieties of daisies, roses and hydrangeas. All of these blooms have a summer flowering habit, and each has unique flowers for that summer only. One common flower for summer is the daffodils, which come in a wide variety of colors. These lovely little blooms come in all kinds of red, pink, orange and blue tones, and there are a few varieties, such as the blue-green daffodil, which has blue petals. The lilac daffodil is a very dramatic lilac color, with its lavender and lemon yellow blooms. Other summertime flowers include the gladiola, the lilac blueberry, the hibiscus, the asters and the peony.
If you love to garden but don’t have much room in your flower garden, planting a trellis system can be a quick solution. These trellis systems provide a nice place for a person to sit down and relax, while the flowers that are growing on the walls get some of the sunlight they need. Planting a trellis system in your garden in summer can provide a very simple way to bring a few different types of flowers into your garden. The various different heights and shapes that trellis systems can take to mean that you’re sure to find the perfect flower for your summer gardening needs. Plus, if you don’t feel like going through the trouble of planting one each month, then you can just use a trellis system as a quick solution.
