Geraniums are popular plantings across the South. They add fragrant foliage and bright blooms wherever they’re planted, whether that’s in backyard gardens or in pots, planters, and containers.
“High summer heat can take its toll on these plants. Many common geraniums stop blooming in sizzling weather, a condition known as ‘heat check.’ (They’ll resume blooming when cooler weather arrives.)”
Super easy to grow sunflowers are a popular choice for many gardeners. They stand up to summertime heat well and depending on the variety can bloom in as little as 53 days.
