With long lazy days, family vacations, time on the water and extended daylight – is it any wonder that we love this time of year? There are so many memories and good feelings associated with this season – and is there any flower more iconic in the summer season than the sunflower? True to its name, the sunflower looks like the sun, needs a lot of sunlight, and even follows the sun. They are cheerfully representative of the sunshine we all love this time of year and are one of the most recognizable flowers in the world. Because of this, sunflowers make a wonderful starting point for a summer centerpiece for your picnics and barbecues!
In the summertime, we look forward to adventurous days doing things we love, and balmy nights sitting on an outdoor patio. Gatherings – whether planned or impromptu – just feel different in the summer months. We don’t need a special occasion; we don’t need an excuse- we get together with friends and family simply because the season inspires it.
All types of summer flowers, not just sunflowers, fit naturally into our activities and look like they were fresh picked from the garden. They are bright; they are colorful, and they represent the season with informal beauty that doesn’t have to try very hard. They are the perfect accompaniment to our summertime mood. There are many summer flowers that flourish and thrive in the hot months. Some of our favorite summer flowers include the towering and majestic gladioli; the soft and delicate hydrangea; and all the brightly colored varieties of aster and daisies that spring up everywhere at this time of year.
