Summertime and the liv'in is easy. To make life even sweeter, how about adding some splashes of color to your garden. There are a lot of great plants to choose from this time of year. Here are the plants that made our HOT list for summer.

Tardiva HydrangeaTardiva Hydrangea - This large shrub has beautiful white blooms that last a long time. Even after they have faded, they look like "moths dancing around the tree".


Crape Myrtle

Crape Myrtle - No plant says summer like the Crape Myrtle. With colors like pink, red, purple and white, and sizes ranging from small shrub to medium size tree, this versatile plant deserves a spot in your garden.



CaryopterisCaryopteris (Blue Mist Plant) - The low mounding habit of Caryopteris makes it perfect as a low border plant for massing purposes and works wonders in dry, sunny spots. Hundreds of blue foot long flower spikes cover this plant in late summer.



SedumSedum - So many to choose from. This family of plants have varieties that bloom in pink, yellow or red and grow as a clumping or spreading perennial. Sedums take bright sun and can tolerate low water. A perfect plant for our summers.


EchinaceaEchinacea (Cone Flower) - Cone Flowers have come a long way in recent years with interesting varieties such as Kim's Knee High and Magnus, this plant is sure to add some zip to any landscape. Not only is it attractive to us two legged animals, butterflies love it too.


Black Eye SusanBONUS PLANT: Rudbeckia (Black Eyed Susan) - We can't leave Maryland's state flower off of this list. Its vibrant colors are sure to add energy to even the most dog day of August.
