For Your Garden’s Full-Sunflowers

Just because something is easy isn’t always the best option. Of course, the hardiest and healthy flowers are the ones that are most suited to your growing environment.

The USDA has a chart to help you figure out what zone you reside in. You may get the best results with the least effort by choosing plants well-suited to your local climate, soil, sunshine, and moisture. An excellent place to begin is with flowers native to the area. Because they offer food for local species like birds and butterflies, they’re already familiar with your site. They are a great addition to your yard. Incorporate some of them into your garden, and you may claim to have some of the most demanding plants in the country!


They come in various vibrant hues, making them a versatile addition to any bouquet. They need at least six hours of sunshine each day to thrive. Beautiful multi-colored flowers, such as the ones seen above, are common in certain types. They’re all the same hue. They can also withstand high temperatures, making them an excellent choice for landscaping in hot climates.


These blossoms may grow up to three feet tall when they get full sun. They may, however, thrive in shady conditions as well. Breeding and hybridization advances have resulted in disease-resistant species and cultivars that thrive even in the humid summers of the South. Zinnias can also withstand high temperatures; however, certain varieties are prone to mildew. Several zinnia varieties are annuals, and many self-seed easily in the garden. Hummingbirds love zinnias, so they’re a must-have in a butterfly garden. It takes them only a few weeks from seed to flower, and their blooms can persist all summer!


Whether in the suburbs or elsewhere, sunflowers are the ideal wildflower. A few sunflower types may reach heights of up to 10 feet. Showy blossoms and delectable seeds will be yours when you choose a variety that stays at a manageable size. If you select the Soraya, you can count on gorgeous flowers on robust stems that won’t tumble over. It may reach a height of six feet and makes a lovely cut flower.

Daisy Dahlberg

Due to their original range in southern Texas and northern Mexico, Dahlberg daisies prefer dry, hot weather over damp, prolonged periods, or moist soils. Give them plenty of sunlight and dry, well-drained soil. They’ll flourish for weeks without much rain once they’re planted. Start them inside from seed and transfer them outside once winter has finally ended in your location. They are intolerant of frost or freezes. Borders and hanging baskets are ideal spots for this low growing, spreading plant, where visitors can get a good look at the tiny blossoms and aromatic feathery leaves up close. To create a sunny butterfly garden, you might want to experiment with using these flowers as an edging.

Vinca recurrence each year

Vinca may be found in various colors, including white, pink, red, purple, and lavender, in addition to several variations of these primary colors. A succession of five-petaled blossoms accentuates the bright green leaves of this plant. In terms of size, annual vinca grows to around 15 in. by 15 in. Vinca is a low-maintenance plant that does not need deadheading. They thrive in full sun to partial shade and can withstand moderate dryness, although their flowers are best when watered regularly. Even though annual vinca isn’t one of the butterflies’ favorite garden plants, it provides nectar for them. Trailing vinca is the answer if you’re looking for a low-maintenance ground cover.


If you live in a frost-free area, pentas may be cultivated year-round, although they’re more commonly planted as an annual. Most nurseries carry them, and they’re easy to grow. As the clusters of tiny stars have nectar, butterflies of all sizes flock to the flowers to feed. Pentas should be grown in full to partial sunlight with plenty of water, especially at the beginning.


Peonies enjoy being in the sun. You wouldn’t think the peony would thrive well in a dry environment, but you’d be amazed by its performance. Consider the placement of your peony before you plant them. Keep an eye out for trees that might potentially develop and block your view. It’s also a popular cut flower due to the blossoms’ strong scent. Peonies may reach a height and width of 35 inches and like full sun or light shade. They are also resistant to deer and rabbits, which is a bonus.


A drought-tolerant garden may benefit significantly from the blooming spikes of penstemon, also known as beardtongue, which blooms in the spring and summer. Depending on the species, each blooming end has many blooms ranging from a faint pink to a rose, magenta, purple, or red. Hummingbirds are attracted to the tubular blossom because of its aesthetic value. The majority of penstemon species are hardy and tolerant of being ignored. A well-drained, well-lit garden with full sun to filtered shade and extra watering throughout the hot summer months is ideal for these plants.

Sage from Russia

With its lavender-blue blossoms and unique spikes, Russian sage shines out in the yard. It is common to consider this little shrub a perennial. Depending on where you live, this plant’s fragrant silvery stems and leaves bloom in late spring or early fall, depending on the season. This little plant attracts bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, but deer and rabbits avoid it. Russian sage may be cultivated everywhere from Zone 3 to Zone 10, depending on the environment. Plant this shrub in a warm climate (Zone 8 or higher), and you’ll have it all year long. Colder temperatures will see the plant become dormant till spring comes along again. Despite its drought tolerance, Russian sage requires full sun, neutral to slightly alkaline soil, and hot summers to thrive.

Yarrow, Fernleaf

Fernleaf yarrow, often known as yarrow, is a hardy perennial that thrives in almost any sunny location, even in poor soil. In early summer, massive clusters of golden yellow blooms occur on long stalks on this species’ bushy mound of scented ferny leaves. Remove wilted flowers regularly to encourage a steady supply of new blooms. Fresh or dry, they are excellent for chopping.
