Hydrangeas beautify the summer landscape

Bigleaf hydrangeas bloom profusely during the early summer months with pink to dark blue globular clusters of flowers and have solid medium to dark green leaves. The plants are attractive in the landscape and can be used as a specimen, group of plants or in containers.


Hydrangeas color the summer landscape

As a child, my grandmother had many big leaf hydrangeas planted in her landscape that provided brilliant color every summer. Around her patio, they blended in with pink garden phloxes and provided an attractive view from the dining room.

Crape myrtles thrive in the summer landscape

One of the most popular summer-flowering woody plants are the crape myrtles. They bloom profusely throughout the summer months and have minimal maintenance requirements once established.
