The Q&A Archives: Wild Flowers

Question: If I plant some Wild Flowers now, will they bloom all summer? I want pretty flowers that bloom all summer.

Answer: Different flower species have different bloom periods, so choose varieties that bloom in summer. Some may bloom in early summer, some late summer, some into fall. You didn't say what the sun exposure is, but assuming full sun, some easy-to-grow summer flowers include sunflowers, cosmos, gaillardia, salvia, tithonia, black-eyed Susan, four o?clock, yarrow, hyssop and butterfly weed (asclepias). Good luck with your gardening!
