Summertime flowering perennials

As we shift into the warmer summer days, some gardens tend to loose their flair.  In springtime we have bulbs and lots of yellows and purple tones.  Lilies, poppies and peonies begin to fade way and there may be a blank spot in your garden. Summertime bloomers are warm colored to go with the warm days.  Think of using red, bright oranges and yellows to stand out for this short time.  Red hot poker, Black-Eyed Susan, Coneflower, Evening primrose, Bee balm and Hollyhock are all summer-flowering.  Choose 1 or 2 to add to a perennial bed for some summertime brightness!
