Waterwise Blooms

Your yard doesn't have to look like a desert landscape to have a low-maintenance and waterwise garden. You can have a garden that is full of beautiful summer flowering plants that is also waterwise.

These 5 plants will bloom year after year requiring little maintenance.

Coneflower - This hardy perennial is a favorite of butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. The purple coneflower is the most popular but they are now available in a wide range of colors from white to yellow, orange and red.

 

 

 

Rudbeckia - a long-time summer favorite, the Black eyed Susans as they are commonly known take the heat and keep blooming. Plant them in a sunny spot and enjoy cutflowers all summer long. 

 

 

 

Coreopsis has beautiful small yellow or red blooms throughout the summer. And get ready: there’s a whole new group of coreopsis. Breeders have taken the shy yellows we’ve known and super-sized them in amazing colors. And they’ll bloom all summer. Fine-textured foliage and tiny stems provide waves of daisy flowers in cranberry, bright yellow, cream with red centers, garnet red, butter yellow, bright pink, and scarlet. Some even have bright, golden foliage.

 

 

Salvia - There are so many different sages there’s no need to try to learn them. Simply plant them and enjoy them. Wonderful cut flowers, sages need little care beyond cutting them back occasionally when they get too big. The large ones are great around roses or at the back of borders. And there here are little ones and everything in between. Hummingbirds and butterflies love them and so will you. You’ll get flowers from spring through fall.

 

Verbena - perennial Verbena bonariensis is a tall plant with purple flowers. They also attract pollintators like bees and butterflies. The sturdy plants bloom spring through fall with little effort needed.

Heat Tolerant Plants

Bookmark and Share

 

There are many perennial flowers that thrive in the heat of the summer, providing us with loads of color in sunny spots. Four of our favorites are Coreopsis, Echinacea, Rudbeckia and Verbena. They also attract birds and butterflies and make great long lasting cut flowers to bring indoors and enjoy.

Coreopsis

Get ready: there’s a whole new clan of coreopsis invading garden centers. Breeders have taken the shy yellows we’ve known and super-sized them in amazing colors. And they’ll bloom all summer. Fine-textured foliage and tiny stems provide waves of daisy flowers in cranberry, bright yellow, cream with red centers, garnet red, butter yellow, bright pink, and scarlet. Some even have bright, golden foliage.

 

 

Coneflowers (Echinacea) 

Coneflowers have undergone a remarkable change. Both the color and form of the flowers have been transformed. What were once simple, cone-topped daisy flowers in pink or purple have evolved to sensational, boss-topped, incredibly double (and large single) flowers in orange, yellow, wine, all sorts of pinks, white and red. Coneflowers are deer-resistant, low-water, low-care, vibrant, native American perennials. They are excellent cut flowers.

 

 

Black Eyed Susans (Rudbeckia)

Cheerful yellow daisy blooms with dark centers bloom summer into fall. They love the heat and are also pollinator friendly. Cut the blooms to bring indoors for long lasting cut flowers.

 

 

 

 

 

Verbena

Spreading perennials that are waterwise, love the heat and are idea for containers, hanging baskets, and the front of garden beds.
