Is the good weather approaching and you’re wondering which are the best summer plants for your garden? Do you want to know which are the most resistant to high temperatures and which require the simplest care? Then you’re reading the right post! In this article you will find a selection of five types of sun-resistant summer plants. These will make sure you enjoy a beautiful and lively garden during the most joyful and expected season of the year.
It is one of the best known outdoor plants and is resistant to sun and heat. It flowers all year round and does not require demanding care, which is why it is a common sight in all gardens, terraces and balconies during the summer and all seasons. In addition, it has a great variety of bright and cheerful colours: pink, red, lilac, white, and also combined shades. It is a plant that does not require much water (in summer you only have to water it twice a week) and you have to avoid the leaves and flowers getting wet during watering.
With its lush pompom flower, the dahlia blooms from early summer to late autumn. It likes the sun and is resistant to high temperatures, but requires frequent and abundant watering (which must be done during the hours when it is not in the sun). It must also be protected from the wind. Originally from Mexico, we can find it with white, yellow, orange, red, pink and multicoloured flowers, among other colours. And also of various species.
3. Aromatics plants
Well known and used in gardening, aromatic plants are a good choice for summer. Although not all of them are, since some can’t be kept in full sun and these should be discarded. Among the most resistant to the sun and heat we find lavender, thyme and rosemary. They are easy to grow and care for and are used to decorate gardens and then taken to the kitchen to flavour dishes. Thyme, for example, is famous for its expectorant properties.
The fourth summer plant option for your garden is the petunia. It has a beautiful trumpet-shaped flower in various colours and requires little water and a lot of sun. Also, it flowers all year round and will make your garden look great in any season. It is ideal to combine with other summer plants. Regarding watering, it should be regular during the hottest days, but without abusing it too much (in general it doesn’t need much water). You should also apply fertilizer during the summer season, until mid-autumn.
And finally, we find the hibiscus. An evergreen shrub that can grow up to five metres high (if planted in the garden). Its funnel-shaped flower can be of different colours and they all make it spectacular and exotic. It likes early morning sun and direct light. In summer you should water it frequently without the water coming out and prune it in spring, if you want its flowering to be at its best during the summer.
