Flowers are attractive additions to your landscape beds, enhancing their beauty with colorful blooms and attracting the likes of bees, butterflies, and birds. Black-eyed Susans, daylilies, purple coneflowers, and Shasta daisies are 4 common perennials that will thrive in the Georgia climate and increase your property's curb appeal. Black-eyed Susans are daisy-like flowers that can bloom with red, orange, or yellow petals. Daylilies require little maintenance and come in several different colors. Purple coneflowers can easily adapt to the surrounding environment and bloom with narrow, droopy purple petals. Shasta daisies are similar to normal daisies but have larger and thicker blooms. You can not go wrong with any of these perennials, as they will all bring new, colorful life to your landscape beds.
1. Black-eyed Susans
Black-eyed Susans are beautiful daisy-like flowers that bloom in the late summer until early fall. They are adorned with either orange, red, or yellow petals and have a dark brown/black center - hence their name; their stems and leaves are covered in tiny hairs, giving them a rough texture. These plants thrive best in full sun and well-drained, rich soil that is kept relatively moist. Black-eyed Susans are attractive to birds and butterflies and make great additions to flower bouquets.
Daylilies are another beautiful perennial that will enhance the beauty of your landscape beds. Depending on the type of daylily, they can bloom in a rainbow of colors, including orange, pink, purple, red, white, or yellow! They require little maintenance and are drought-tolerant, though routine watering will result in more blooms. Daylilies can grow in full sun or partial shade and bloom in the spring, summer, and fall seasons. Their leafless stems, or scapes, can grow to reach 6 feet tall!
3. Purple Coneflowers
Purple coneflowers are purple, daisy-like flowers with narrow, droopy petals and a spiny center. They are easily adaptable to the surrounding environmental conditions and are heat and drought-tolerant, making them low-maintenance and perfect for your landscape beds. Purple coneflowers perform best in full sun exposure and require moderate watering; they like well-drained soil like limestone, sand, or clay.
Purple coneflowers have properties that can boost your immune system and are used to make a popular herbal tea!
4. Shasta Daisies
Shasta daisies are similar to normal daisies, the only difference being that they have larger and thicker blooms. They bloom in the summer and fall with white petals and a yellow center, which attracts the likes of bees, butterflies, and birds. Shasta daisies thrive in full sun and well-drained, moderately fertile/moist soil. If you are looking for classically beautiful flowers that bloom all summer long, then Shasta daisies are for you!
