Top Picks: Plants for Late Summer Color
I adore the Hydrangea. Here in New York you can find some variety all year round, but they look best in the summer. The deep violet is a treat for the eyes! These are my go-to dinner party flowers. In a short vase they have a casual vibe but bunched together in an ornate vase, they read simply luxe. They're great for any type of party!

The Rose Mallow is just gorgeous! It's typically pink with hints of white, allowing you to appreciate the rich pink color. They bloom in the late spring and last until the first frost, so you have plenty of time to enjoy these.
Zinnias are the summer flower! They are big, round and BRIGHT! They come in a variety of colors, allowing for the perfect tablescape. They thrive in hot weather, but if Itake care of them, they can last well into fall.
CandytuftWhile Candytufts are evergreen, the white flowers bloom only in the summer. The white color is soft on the eyes compared to all the bright flowers we've just seen! I pick these up for clients that have bright, vibrant rooms. They're a nice accent and look great in any vase!
