End-of-Summer Blooms

Most of our favorite summertime perennials bloom from the end of May through early-mid July, but there are some which hold off until August or even September. A few of my late-blooming favorites are phlox, asters, and mums; and if we were to include annuals, I might add morning glory, verbena, and Mexican sage. We have much to anticipate with the coming of Autumn and cooler weather, and I am happy that some of my most beloved flowers are included.
