Summer Phlox

To attract butterflies to a summer garden, try planting Summer Phlox, Phlox paniculata. These flowers - 'John Fanick' and 'Victoria' summer phlox - have just been named Texas Superstars™ by Texas A&M University, which means they will be top performers in the garden. In midsummer, when spring flowers have faded, summer phlox will bring clouds of butterflies to your garden and even attract a few hummingbirds. In addition, you will have bouquets of fragrant flowers that can be used as cut flowers.

‘Blue Princess’ type Verbena

One of the showiest of perennial flowers is the verbena. Verbena has many attributes such as heat tolerance, everblooming and enduring. A beautiful lavender blue Verbena from England named BLUE PRINCESS VERBENA(Verbena x hybrida 'Blue Princess'). It is a rapidly spreading perennial Verbena with showy lavender-blue flowers. This variety was discovered in England by Greg Grant, former Bexar County Extension Horticulturist, while on a plant collecting trip to England for Color Spot Growers.
