Flowers that wont Wilt Under the Summer Sun

“These are what I consider staple plants, they can all handle the full, hot sun,” says Kim.

Black-eyed susans are one of her favourites for summer. They are similar to daisies. This plant is native to the States, and not only does it spruce up the lawn outside, but it is also great as a cut-flower. They get their name from the dark black centers that they have. These flowers usually come in shades of yellow but there are some orange and red varieties.

The pincushion flower is also another great variety. The flowers resemble pincushions and come in purple, lavender or pink. Pincushions attract butterflies and hummingbirds; which only adds more flair to the garden. This flower grows to about 8 inches in height and makes a great choice for rock gardens and bordering perennials.

Finally the autumn sage, though its name may be deceiving, blooms around this time of year and will continue to bloom giving off red, purple, lavender, fuchsia and white blooms, all summer winter and even deep into fall. This flower also attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.
