It’s August! Which means fall is starting to creep up on us and a relief from the heat is just around the corner. But there’s still some summer left! Perennials such as Hardy Hibiscus, Black-Eyed Susans, Russian Sage, and Coneflower shine this time of year. Many Hydrangeas are still in bloom or just finishing up their bloom time, and shrubs like Rose of Sharon and Cinquefoil are still going strong. Fall interest shrubs such as Sweetspire, Oakleaf Hydrangea, Chokeberry and Fothergilla may be showing some hints of developing their vibrant fall foliage.
If your annuals have burnt out, now’s a good time to replace them with mums or other fall plants that will last through the rest of the season. If you don’t want to worry about keeping a plant in bloom, annual fountain grasses, millet, or ornamental cabbage and kale are great choices to add to containers for late summer to fall interest. Our mum field is starting to take on hints of color and will be in full bloom before you know it!
