Late Summer Blooming Flowers


Gardens are usually most beautiful from May until about July, when all the flowers are in full bloom! But now that summer is winding down, your garden may look a bit tired, with many flowers wilting or turning brown. But before you put away your gardening tools for the summer, consider growing some late bloomers! There are many perennials and annuals that bloom late in the season to give your garden some colour and life again. Here is a list of flowers that should bloom from now until fall:
