August is Jim Gibb’s favorite month for summer flowers. Dazzling combinations of annuals and perennials, for both sun and shade, provide brilliant color throughout the gardens. 100’s of waterlilies, including hardy and tropical varieties, bloom in shades of white, yellow, pink, purple and even orange. Roses of pink, red, yellow and white, and crape myrtles of various colors continue to flower.
PeeGee hydrangeas, include Hydrangea paniculata ‘Vanilla Strawberry’ with striking flowers that start out white and turn a rich strawberry pink as they mature.
Other stalwarts of the summer garden include Hibiscus syriacus, also known as Rose-of-Sharon, blooming in shades of purple, pink and white.
Plan to visit during the morning hours from 9 am to 12 noon, when temperatures are typically
