As the saying goes, April showers bring May flowers followed by the start of summer in June and in Dallas, that also means the arrival of Texas heat! As with any plantings, choosing flowers that will best tolerate the sun, shade or soil condition is a wise decision and a good investment of your time and budget. We're gearing up for summer flower planting and here are some of our faves that are proven performers and can stand up to the hot summer months!
OUR FAVORITE: Pentas
We can't say enough good things pentas, they are proven performers that can stand up to the Texas heat and full sun while at the same time also thrives in light to medium shade so are terrific for those beds that get mixed sun throughout the day. They don't require a lot of water, attract butterflies and come in bold colors that are great for a layered look.
Coleus Come in BOTH Sun Tolerant and Shade Loving Varieties
Love the colorful leaves of the coleus but not sure where you can place it in your garden? No problem! This proven performer comes in a variety of colors for BOTH full sun and shade. Forget the guesswork and trust us to install the correct variety to perform in your garden.
It's very common to have ares of your garden that receive morning sun and afternoon shade and there's no need to fight that mixed light situation as there are a number of plants that thrive in those conditions.
