I started my rather large flower garden in the front of my house 3 years ago. It looks beautiful in the spring, fall, and attractive in the winter. My problem is that I can't seem to get anything to bloom in the June and July months except for shasta daiseys. They are pretty, but they don't pack a punch. I'd like something tall and bright to say hey, look at me! Can anyone help?
