Flowers and Shrubs to Grow This Summer

Flowers-Shrubs and TO GROW THIS SUMMER Nothing looks better in a garden than flowers and shrubs in summer sunshine. Here are some of the best: Dahlias make great garden flowers because of their large flowers and sharp colors. They prefer full sun to partial shade in a well-drained soil. Bougainvilleas are climbing plants that can be used to de- corate fences or walls. Get the most flowers by letting them bask on your sunlit patio or porch. Banksia's compact inflorescences are so strange and beau- tiful, they lure nectar-eating birds. They grow best in well- drained sandy soils or sandy loams in sunny positions. Lavender are colorful charmers that are widely cultivated for their scent and healing qualities. They look lovely as garden edgings, and demand full sun and well-drained gravelly soil. Frangipanis are known for their spectacular five-petaled flower clusters. They're happy in a wide range of soil types and grow best in semi-shade to full sun exposure. Butterfly Bush is like a deliciously fragrant summer lilac that forms multi-stemmed shrubs well-suited for border areas. They thrive in full sun but can tolerate part shade. Hydrangea Paniculata produces fluffy clusters of white flowers that are ideal for large containers or any landcape spot. They like full sun but they also do well in part shade. Oleander produces heavily scented colorful flowers all summer. They bloom best in full sun/light shade, and well- drained soil. Note, though: they're extremely poisonous. Shrub Roses are easy-growing. disease-resistant, and self- flowering plants that are perfect for container planting or edging borders. Plant them in full sun to part shade. Summersweet is an ornamental shrub that attracts swarms of hummingbirds and butterflies. They're best grown in fast-draining soil with full sun exposure. You can build the garden of your dreams.
