Hydrangeas might seem old-fashioned but they are one of the most favourite summer blossoms. There are both dwarf varieties and stately tree forms. So, you can plant Hydrangea mass along a slope or as a stand-alone focal point. On top of this, people often use these flowers for dry flower arrangements.

If you want to fill your garden with summer blossoms that will reward you with rich colours all summer long, plant Petunias. You can create hanging baskets or use them as bedding plants. Furthermore, it is nice to combine Petunia with annuals, such as pelargonium and verbena.

#6. Lavender

Lavender is probably not the first option that comes to mind when you think about a summer flower bouquet. Nevertheless, this herb is famous for its soothing fragrance and violet flowers. If you want to use the power of aromatherapy, then consider planting Lavender on a mixed border or as hedging.

Sunflowers are some of the summer blossoms that really love the sun. In addition to annual forms, there are also perennial types. If you have limited space, then use dwarf forms or plant Sunflowers in the yard. Interestingly enough, bees and birds will appreciate it.

To sum up, surrounding yourself with summer blossoms is one of the easiest ways to boost your mood during the summer months. We, humans, have a need for beauty. So, why not use spring summer flowers to bring more joy to our day-to-day experience?
