Plant Perennials for Sun that produce flowers that bloom all summer

Are you looking to perform better and last longer? Then Plant Delights Nursery has the thing for you; a great selection of perennials for sun with flowers that bloom all summer. These perennials for sun perform great in the summer garden and have a long lasting bloom period, so your garden will perform better and the flowers will last longer….Um, there may have been a communication error. Plant Delights is a plant nursery and a great place to find flowers that bloom all summer, for little blue pills you’ll need to go elsewhere. If your perennials for sun bloom for more than four months you don’t have to call a doctor, it’s a good thing.

A great group of perennials for sun that often flower for more than four months are the Buddleias (Butterfly bushes), at least in NC. These flowering shrubs now come in a great assortment of sizes and colors, thanks to recent breeding efforts. You can have flowers that bloom all summer in whites, purples, pinks, and even in orange and (almost) red. For those with limited space, a great series of dwarf and medium size forms are now available. If you have room though, there’s nothing quite like 8’ x 8’ of butterfly bush covered in flowers that bloom all summer. And true to name, the butterflies will love it as much as you will.

For something a little smaller and less familiar but just as floriferous, Kalimeris is a good choice. These perennials for sun are relatives of the asters, and tend to have flowers that bloom all summer. For a similar look in late summer and fall, the US native asters are a great choice, and can be so floriferous you can’t see the plant (like Aster novae-angliae 'Purple Dome').

If you can’t afford that little blue pill, Jasmine (Jasminum officinale) is said to be an aphrodisiac. If that wasn’t enough this vine blooms all summer with deliciously fragrant flowers. This and many more long blooming flowers are available at Plant Delights Nursery, along with many plants you can think of and a lot more you’ve never even heard of. So shop with us if you want your garden to perform better, or you could buy the jasmine.
