The kids are out of school, the first harvest of fresh vegetables is showing up at farmer's stands, and here at White Flower Farm we are basking in the beauty of flowers. You, too, can enjoy a slew of flowering perennials, shrubs and annuals during the months of July and August if you plan and commit to adding summer color to your home gardens.
It doesn't take much to catch the aroma of a floribunda Rose wafting on a summer breeze or to take a break from the stress of daily life by planting long-blooming Gauras, sturdy Black-eyed Susans and stately summer Phlox. What landscape couldn't benefit from a large stand of Russian Sage -- its delicate sprays of blue flowers billowing in the late summer light? Or who can resist the throwback to a simpler life conjured by Hydrangea blossoms familiar from time spent at the home of a beloved grandmother? All is possible with the richness of flowers in the summer garden. You need only set your mind to it and get it done. And of course we can help.
Look to us for quality plants, a fresh inventory of hard-to-find perennials, and expert advice distributed in the lovely farm setting that is White Flower Farm. We may be busy harvesting Blueberries, cutting a bouquet of Roses, or standing back to admire a colorful mixed border of flowers, but we are mainly here to talk to you about plants, good garden techniques, and the rewards of staying connected to your private piece of paradise -- your home garden. We look forward to being of service.
Look Towards Fall
Hydrangea Bobo is one of the best new Pee Gee hydrangeas to hit the market. It has all the fullness of its larger cousins but in a dwarf form - perfect for today's smaller spaces. Clean white flower heads are present in abundance and can carry a garden for months on end during these summer months. Don't delay - supplies are limited!
Lavender Phenomenol is a WOW plant that our customers are flocking to. Long bloom time, compact crown growth and the tested hardiness of a zone 5 plant all add up to a winning perennial. Why not pick up a few on your next visit to the store and have your own slice of lavender heaven in your home landscape?!
Perovskia Peek-a-boo adds a valuable punch of blue color to the summer garden filled with golden yellows. This dwarf form of Russian Sage would look wonderful at the front of the border and give you long lasting pleasure from mid-July to mid-September.
Summer Phlox can carry a mid-summer garden and we have some lovely selections in colors ranging from Phlox Laura's purple with a white eye to the rich apricot-pink of Phlox Coral Créme. No summer garden should be without some - so jump in and be bold and freshen up your August home gardens.
And we have the hard to find plants as well like; Patrinia scabiosifola with its airy sprays of chrome-yellow flowers, Rudbeckia Henry Ellers and Autumn Sun to add 5 or 6' towers of black-eyed susan flowers to the back of a border. Or why not try a new daylily, a spectacular dahlia or late blooming plants like Monkshood and Butterfly-weed - they make for great pollinators and beautiful late season additions of color.
Our staff is looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new gardeners in 2014. Look to the plant experts at White Flower Farm for all your gardening needs. Our goal is to simplify your outdoor living needs with easy plants and effortless style.
