Summer Flowering Shrubs




 

Summer flowering shrubs are in all their glory right now at your local Home Depot.


Most shrubs of that flower in the Summer are deciduous, they drop their leaves and show bare branches through the winter, but they make up for it during the summer months. More time is spent outside throughout the summer than in the early spring when all the evergreen shrubs make their statement and flower.


Adding a few summer flowering shrubs to your landscape will carry color all through the season.




Consider planting a few favorites from the list of summer flowering shrubs, Hydrangeas, Weigela, Spirea, Butterfly Bush, and Rose of Sharon all of these easy care for shrubs will provide your landscape with color with low maintenance.




The Butterfly Bush likes to be cut back after the first flush of flowers pass, this will stimulate a late season spans of blossoms to be enjoyed by the Monarch butterflies when they stop by on their 3,000 mile migration to Mexico.


Knock Out Roses are a season long bloomer adding any variety of Knock Out to your landscape is a win-win!! Once the cooler weather comes at summers end the Knock Out blows up with color!


Summer shrubs are they way to go for added seasonal color in your landscape, stop by your local Home Depot to see all the flowering summer shrubs and roses
