5 Late Summer Blooms for Zone 7

With spring blooms starting to fade or having already done so, it’s a good idea to add some color to your landscape that will get you through the hottest days of summer and into fall. Here are my picks for USDA Hardiness Zone 7.

Planting flowers by zone is a way to make sure you have a thriving flower garden, since these plants grow best in your climate. Zones 3-9 are the most commonly encountered zones in the Continental U.S.

You can refer to the United States Department of Agriculture for more details about hardiness zones.
