Himalayan Poppy

Also known as Meconopsis betonicifolia, the Himalayan poppy makes an alluring bloom during late spring and early summer. To cultivate the Himalayan poppy in your garden, place it in a partially shaded spot and safe from strong winds. 

This flower highly requires rich and well-drained soil. Thus, make sure that your yard’s soil is ready before planting some. During the summer months, make sure to water them on a regular basis. 

Foxglove

Without a doubt, foxglove is one of the most beautiful flowers you can grow in your garden. Gardeners love its attractive tubular blossoms that create a beautiful shade in your garden. Most foxgloves can grow in any type of soil. However, they can grow fast if you plant them in moist, well-drained soil. 

Sunflower

Sunflowers are the symbol of summer beauty. Thus, without a doubt, this should be a part of your outdoor garden that can bring you a memorable summer feel. Sunflowers are known for their sun-like flower heads that face the sun. They are low-maintenance. However, there are still few necessary things that you should consider when planting them in your garden. 

Sunflowers require sunlight to grow. Hence, make sure the spot where you want to plant them receives plenty of sunlight. You also have to consider the variety of sunflowers you have selected. A huge type of sunflower may shade the surrounding blooms inside your landscape. 

Carnation

Carnations are noted for their bright and pastel colors, as well as their sweet fragrance. Their irregular petal forms, which are incredibly soft to the touch, also make this garden flower popular. Carnations prefer sunlight over shades. Thus, when planting them, choose a spot that allows them to get enough sun exposure for at least four to six hours everyday. 

Bird Of Paradise

Despite its exotic look, the bird of paradise remains one of the most suggested flowers you can grow in your garden. These flowers can thrive in various situations as long as you protect them from cold. 

Make sure the solid doesn’t dry out too quickly when planting. This won’t allow the flowers to grow. Keep the soil wet and well-drained. During the spring and summer months, make sure that the flowers are well-watered and dry out slightly in winter.

Love-Lies-Bleeding

Without a doubt, love-lies-bleeding creates a stunning centerpiece in your landscape. This variety of Amaranth is an annual that grows up to two feet long. They are also considered easy-to-grow annual plants. Plants blossom in full sun from July until frost. 

When planting, keep the soil moist, and sprouts will emerge between ten to fourteen days. They can thrive in rich soil with plenty of fertilizer, but they may also thrive in poor soil. The richer the soil, though, the taller the plants will grow.

Zygopetalum Orchid

Gardeners adore it not only for its amazing beauty and vibrant colors, which provide a lovely shade in your yard but also for its sweet fragrance. In humid environments, Zygopetalum orchids can thrive in partial shade, but they must be protected from high humidity and cold weather.

Cockscomb

No one can deny the superb beauty of these flowers, which makes them perfect on your landscape. Cockscomb flowers are easy to grow from seed. These annuals come in various colors, including red, yellow, pink, purple, and orange. They can bloom in partial shade. Thus they can thrive when partially shadowed by other taller plants in your garden. 

Takeaway

Your garden is just a plain landscape without these beautiful flowers. Give your space a fresh, attractive shade and sweet fragrance with stunning garden flowers mentioned above. Most of them are widely known for their incredible beauty. Whether you opt for roses, dinner plate dahlias, or sunflowers, they can indeed transform your garden into a centerpiece of attraction.
