Summer Perennial Selections

By: Christine W.

Summer is here, and we’re ready to celebrate! In our outdoor garden center, we are carrying a wide variety of perennial plants to enhance your beds.  To sweeten the deal, we’re offering a 20% off sale starting late June, so come on in and check out our beautiful selection.


Right now, our choice of perennials include some of our favorites like Monarda, which is a brilliant purple or pink flower that blooms very soon, starting in July.  It is known for attracting hummingbirds and butterflies, and it has a sweet scent.  You can place Monarda in sun, and it’s easy to maintain for a bright pop of color in your garden.

VeronicaAnother one of our favorite perennials at Matlack Florist is Veronica. Its vivid hues of purple, pink, or blue bloom all summer long.  For example, one of our current varieties is called “Purpleicious”, pictured here.  Various types of Veronica can grow up from one inch, perfect for your windowsill beds and ground covering, to two feet high if watered regularly and kept in the sun to part shade.

DaylilyIf you’re looking for a warmer-toned perennial, try our Daylily that blooms right now in the summer months all the way into autumn.  Daylilies also grow best in the sun to part shade and can thrive in different climates.  While they’re low maintenance, they still produce a sunshiny yellow flower that will look fantastic in your garden.

CoreopsisAlso in the warmer tones we are featuring the Coreopsis plant.  With it’s tiny golden blooms and long feathery foliage, this plant brings a beautiful light look to add into the garden.  Coreopsis takes full sun and blooms from the late spring into the fall, so you can enjoy this plant all summer long.

Check back in our garden center ever few weeks for a new and fresh selection of in-season blooms.  We hope to help brighten your garden with our bright and colorful perennials that you can enjoy year after year.

We are happy to announce that we will be featuring the Perennial Plant of 2016, the Anemone “Honorine Jobert”, starting in August! Don’t miss this unique beauty to spice up your gardens soon!
