The weather has finally warmed up in tidewater Virginia and we feel like we are safe to plant our summer bulbs now. It’s much more interesting to include perennials in your garden and we have awesome Summer blooming perennials that we call COZY COMPANIONS. Now, it’s difficult to highlight just a couple of them because each has its own beauty and strength. But here are a couple of them that are some of our favorites!
Phlox ‘Jeana’ has become Brent’s favorite phlox because it stays in bloom not just for a few weeks, but all Summer long! It stands straight and tall and it appears to be mildew resistant as well! Hardy through zones 4 – 8, Phlox ‘Jeana’ is glorious splash of color in your full sun to part shade garden! You’ll get a lot pleasure out of this one for your investment!
Gaillardia aristata ‘Arizona Sun’ is another favorite because its flowers are so bright and it is a totally ‘easy care’, drought tolerant perennial. But there are many more from which to choose!

Gaillardia aristata ‘Arizona Sun’ is another favorite because its flowers are so bright and it is a totally ‘easy care’, drought tolerant perennial. This visual fire-ball forms 10″-12″ clumps and can be seen from a distance. It’s a garden showtime powerhouse! This would look great along your borders or in a rock garden, in full sun. And since it’s hardy to zones 3 – 10, almost every one of yoou can grow this!
But there are so many more that we love! But, we can’t really say which we like the best. Why don’t you choose! Click here to see the whole group (and save 10% for a limited time!)
