Take a look at the flowers of early summer in the Better Homes and Gardens Test Garden®.
'Lollipop' Asiatic lily creates this duet with Globemaster' allium. One of our best naturalizing lilies, 'Lollipop' provides a thick groundcover and is a perfect backdrop to show off early alliums.
Small, creamy flowers top the lacy foliage of dwarf goatsbeard. Keep it near a path or at the front of a shady border so it's not overrun by large hostas and coralbells.
Yarrow is one of the easiest perennials to grow, and 'Pink Grapefruit' provides bright rosy flowers for many weeks if deadheaded. Its short, compact size allows it to be at the front of our border.
This disease-resistant shrub rose is easy to grow and maintain in the landscape. The coral buds of Flower Carpet Amber rose open to rich tones of apricot, gold, and pink and bloom throughout the summer.
An All-American Daylily winner, 'Leebea Orange Crush' has strong stems to hold up its big blooms. A rich orange flower with a rosy-red eyezone makes this daylily a real hot addition to any landscape border.
Echinacea 'Hot Papaya' is just one of the many new coneflowers appearing on the market. The big, double orange-red flowers make it one of our favorites.
