Beautiful Summer Flowers:
1. Gloriosa Daisy
I absolutely love daisies. I think they are gorgeous summer flowers that have a way of brightening up any yard. So if you are looking for some color for your yard, then you’ll want to consider these.
These summer flowers remind me of colorful wild flowers. They come in many different varieties so you are sure to find a color that goes with your yard’s theme.
My grandmother always planted these in her yard. They had a way of adding subtle beauty and color to a small space.
So if you are looking for a simple yet beautiful flower to add some color to a dull area, then consider adding this flower to the mix.
I love marigolds. They are great for adding color to your home while also serving their purpose in your garden. They are great at protecting your vegetables from pests.
This would be a great flower to grow around rocks for a cottage effect in your yard. It has a wildflower feel to it, but also appears to be very simple in design.
These summer flowers are simple, beautiful, and have lots of colors. Let’s say you have a part of your yard that just seems dreary. Plant a few of these flowers and it will liven it up in no time.
7. Pineapple Lily
Pineapple lilies are amazing looking summer flowers. They don’t look like a traditional lily. Instead, they stand on a stem in the shape of an pineapple. While also adding a lot of color.
Oxalis is a little green bushy plant that has colorful blooms that burst out in color. So if you’d like something that can add both greenery and color to your yard, then you might prefer this plant.
9. Gloriosa Lily
This is another very unique lily. It doesn’t match what you might think of when you think of a lily. It looks like a little fiery plant that has a very unique shape. It would certainly add character to your yard.
10. Surprise Lily
This lily takes on more of the ‘lily’ shape. However, it sprouts out of the grand and the buds stand at the very tip of the stem as though they had arms that were stretching out from all directions. It is a really beautiful and happy flower.
This plant belongs to the sunflower family, and that is exactly what they look like. They have the small sunflower head on them but are only smaller than a traditional sunflower.
Peonies are gorgeous summer flowers. They work well in your yard, but also to have if you like to create your own flower arrangements from fresh cut flowers as well. They would be a great bonus to any yard, in my opinion.
I have daffodils all over my yard. I love them because you plant them once, and they should come back year after year. They get bigger and brighter with each passing year and do an amazing job at making your yard a brighter place.
Daylilies are another very traditional flower. They are usually bright yellow and can be grown in your yard or a container. They add lots of color to anywhere they are added for décor.
Zinnias are part of the daisy family. They are bright, simple, and add a friendly factor to any yard where they are planted.
So if you need a flower that will add some color and a welcoming effect to your home, then you should consider adding zinnias to your yard.
Plumerias look like a very whimsical flower to me. I love how dainty and beautiful they look. They would make a great plant in a nice seating area in your yard, as they grow as either shrubs or small trees.
This plant can come in a vine, bush, or tree. It has dark colored summer flowers that spring out of the shrubbery to add some color to any area that they are planted. A great decorative vine to create shading with, but know that it is a strong grower and requires trimming and maintenance.
I love lavender. It is so soft and pretty. If you’d like to have a peaceful area in your yard, then you’ll definitely want to include this beautiful plant. There are many different varieties, suited to different climates.
Sunflowers are probably my favorite flower grown in the summer. They become huge and are a great way to provide natural shade. I use them around my chicken yard so my chickens have a nice shaded area to lay on hot summer days without having to stay in the coop.
This is a light blue flower that just makes me smile. It seems so small and dainty but packs a huge punch of color. So if you’d like to add a different color variation to your yard, then you might want to consider periwinkle. It is a creeper and is often used for ground cover.
21. Shasta Daisy
These are your traditional daisies that you are probably use to. They have the yellow center and is surrounded by simple white petals. They are very quaint and add a bit of country charm, in my opinion.
22. Shrub Roses
I love shrub roses. Though they have thorns on them, they are a great way to add some color to your home. I actually have them lining my flower bed in the front of my house. When they are in bloom, my house stands out because of the beautiful pink blooms. To make pruning easy, here's great gardening gloves.
It is very common to find a lot of pink, red, and white flowers in bloom during the summer. But some people prefer purple or blue. If you are someone looking for purple blooms to add color to your yard, then consider going with Aster.
This is another favorite plant of mine. I love hibiscus plants because they are unique and colorful. Also, if you keep them in a container, you can bring them indoors over the winter so you can keep them year after year. They make marvelous scrubs and with a plethora of color variations, careful selection and placement can make you the envy of the neighborhood.
25. Scarlet Sage
This is another plant my grandmother grew a lot of in her yard. The unique ways these summer flowers line the stem of the plant and their bright red color surely do make a house pop from the street view.
