August flowering


Question: August flowering


I would like to have some flowers in August

Answer: August flowering


Dear Giuseppe,
in August, in the height of summer, there are many flowers that bloom in profusion, starting from the most common plants used in the garden or on the terrace, or in the beds of annuals; therefore begonias, impatiens, geraniums, petunias, surfinias, celosias, marigolds continue to bloom from April until autumn; if you want some perennials you can plant the lion's mouths, the Coreopsis, a long series of daisies, with continuous flowering. If, on the other hand, you want bulbous plants or geophytes, the list of flowering plants in August is very long: calla, agapantus, Japanese anemones, gladioli, lilium, zinnias, dahlias, emerocallis.
If you live in an area of ‚Äč‚ÄčItaly with a mild climate, in the garden you can also grow a bougainvillea, or the more delicate varieties of passionflower.
Other summer flowering shrubs, the buddleje, lagerstroemie, hibiscus, oleander, spread a little throughout Italy.
Some plants a little less widespread, but not for this difficult to find: nasturtiums, verbens, yarrow, lantana, hypericum, rudbeckia, beautiful at night.
Everything depends on where your garden is, how it is displayed, how much space you have and what kind of plants you want to flower in August.
If you intend to know which are the flowers that you will find from the florist in August, well, today you can find any flower; in August you will surely find the inevitable roses, but all the chrysanthemums, daisies of various types and gerberas are already beginning to arrive.
