Having flowers in your garden during the summer can be tricky. Especially in the D.C. metro area because of the high temperatures that often come in the summer. The sun and heat can be unforgiving and lots of flowers do not do well in the summer. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a gorgeous garden in these hot months that are quickly approaching. Check out our summer gardening tips! 

Aster. Not many flowers enjoy the heat and sun quite like asters. They also come in soothing summer colors like white, lavender or pink. They go great in any garden and also help to fill out a big space. These flowers are perfect for your garden this summer and you’ll be sure to see them just about everywhere this summer!

Dahlia. These bold flowers can survive the hot temperatures but you do need to be careful about where you plant these flowers in your garden. They need to be in a lightly shaded part of your garden despite being good for the hot summer months. Make sure you keep this in mind!

Gaura. We love these flowers because they are so unique! You don’t typically see flowers like this in your average garden but they are definitely a must for this summer. They have beautiful shades of pink and white all over and will fit into any color scheme you have in your garden. 

Moonshine. These flowers are particularly low maintenance which is why we recommend them for any garden this summer. They also look great in a bigger garden as they help to fill up big spaces. Take advantage of these! They come in a beautiful shade of yellow and will look great in any garden.
