8 Summer Plants for Your Home Garden in Lakeland 55+ Community

 

Have you always dreamed of sipping your coffee on your patio or front porch and just breathing in and taking in all the beautiful colors in your garden? How about you start living that dream by growing these 8 summer plants in your Lakeland 55+ community home garden?

These are typical plants that you can put in your Lakeland 55+ community home's garden this summer.

Aster

These perennials are tough on the inside and beautiful on the outside. When cared for properly, they bloom way until the fall season. They bloom in pink, lavender, or white colored flowers.

 

Coreopsis

From the sunflower family, this plant blooms a fluffy, golden yellow flower that can instantly brighten your space. Also called a “Sunray,” this perennial has long stems and does not need much water to live.

 

Bluebeard Shrub

From the name itself, this shrub is an easy-to-grow plant which blooms beautiful blue flowers that can easily add more color to the garden of your Lakeland 55+ community house.

 

Sally Holmes Rose

This strong-growing plant blooms creamy-white roses that grow in huge clusters. This versatile plant vigorously grows all year, giving you a continuously blooming compact bush all year long.

 

Purple Fountain Grass

One of the most popular ornamental grasses, this plant rewards gardeners with a rose-colored feathery plumes on top of reddish brown foliage. This looks best next to the bluebeard shrub or the bright Coreopsis.

 

Aside from colorful flowers, you can also maximize the space in the garden of your house in Lakeland 55+ community with vegetables that are easy to grow during the summer, such as:

 

Cucumbers

This vegetable need a full sun, the rich soil, pollinating insects, and about an inch of water per week to grow. If you have the space, you can try the vining variety compared to a bush variety of cucumber so that you can get even more fruits from it. Just make sure to support it with a trellis so that it can branch out properly.

 

Tomatoes

Why not grow your own tomatoes and leave the canned ones on the market shelves? Tomatoes need about 6 to 8 hours of full sun exposure.

 

Bush Beans

These shallow rooted plants are easy to care for and grow from seedlings. Once the soil temperature has reached a 60 degrees F warmth, you can directly sow them in your garden.

 

Not everyone has the green thumb but with these plants, you’ll feel like a professional gardener once you see them bloom in such magnificent colors this summer.
