Planting in zone 5 in June?

I live in zone 5 and moved into our home recently. We just cleared 8x8 feet of years of weeds and overgrown, dead plants. We would like to plant in this area. It gets both sun and shade. Could Lavander, delphinium, hydrenga, or primrose be planted in June?

Thanks for writing. All of the plants you mention are fine to be planted in June. Just be sure to keep plants like the delphinium and hydrangea well watered during periods of hot weather and they should be fine.
