The 28 summer bulbs you need to plant and their perfect companion flowers

By Vaseline May27,2024

Asiatic lilies, created from crossing twelve lily varieties, are perfect for getting the summer flowering season started early, lasting from a month to mid-season. Although these less than six feet tall plants are not as aromatic as their Eastern cousins, they make up for this with their beautiful, chocolate-speckled, double flowers that bloom in vibrant red, yellow, white and similar shades. In sunny to partially shaded, loamy gardens of zones 4 through 8, their flowers attract bees and butterflies and can be accented with phlox, daylilies, peonies, lamb’s ears, white sage and roses. Watch out for stains when cutting and keep cats away.
