Blossoms on the Go owner Shirley Brohan has you covered for your summer bedding plants display. 

Summer bedding plants are those colorful, vibrant flowers and foliage that thrive during the warm summer months, adding beauty and charm to gardens, balconies, and outdoor spaces.

Popular summer bedding plants include petunias, marigolds, geraniums, impatiens, begonias, and lobelias. They come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, allowing you to create stunning displays and arrangements. These plants generally prefer full sun or partial shade and well-drained soil, making them perfect for enhancing outdoor areas during the sunny season.

If you’re looking for something a bit longer-lasting, there is a large collection of perennials that come back each year, with some flowering over the summer period. Nepeta plants are beautiful, lavender-blue flowering perennials, and you have a few varieties to choose from. There is a low one, which is Walker Low, and then a tall variety, Nepeta Six Hills Giant. This perennial is commonly known as catmint; the flowers are small and tubular, arranged in spikes or clusters. Nepeta flowers are attractive to bees, butterflies, and other pollinators, making them a beneficial addition to gardens aiming to support local wildlife.

Another perennial plant that attracts pollinators is Echinacea, commonly known as the cone flower. Echinacea plants are valued for their colorful, daisy-like flowers and their ability to attract bees, butterflies, and birds to the garden. They come in lovely shades of white, pink, purple, and orange. They prefer well-drained soil and full sun, blooming from early to late summer.

So, the selection of bedding plants and perennial plants grows each week, and it’s only by seeing them that you can really enjoy their beauty. Happy gardening!
