Do You Need Some Late Summer Blooms?

If your garden is starting to wind down and peter out, we have plenty of options for you to fill in with late-bloomers.

New varieties of Hibiscus (Rose of Sharon) with much bigger flowers. These blooms are incredible.

Phlox looking full and fresh.

Liatris (Gay feather) is a great hardy perennial shown here in front of a delicate-leafed, flowering Lespedeza. (Honeybees are attracted to Lespedeza's pinkish- purple flowers which bloom in late summer when few other plants valuable to beekeepers are blooming.)
