June Annuals

Enjoy Colour all Summer with Annuals!

June is the best time of year to plant your annuals. Annuals, often referred to as bedding plants, are plants that live their life cycle in less than one year. So that means that when the frosts start in the fall they will die and not come back next year. Fortunately that means that they all bloom as much as possible so that they can produce as many seeds as possible for next year to ensure their survival.

There are many great annuals that you can plant in your garden. From Ageratum to Zinnias they can produce a rainbow of colour for your garden. Annuals are great in any garden bed. There are annuals that grow best in full sun like Geraniums and Petunias as well as annuals that grow best in shade like Fuchsias.

New Guinea Impatiens are made for the Shade!

If you are looking for Impatiens this summer you will find that they are not available. This is becuase last summer Impetiens were stuck with a disease called Downey Mildew. This killed almost all of the Impatiens in greater Vancouver. If this happened to you it is recommended that you not plant the regular Impatiens in your garden for the next 3 to 5 years.

As an alternative we recommend that you plant the new Divine New Guinea Impatiens. These new varieties will blooms all summer for you. They will grow in the shade or sun and are heat tolerant. They are available in all of your favourite colours includng white, red, violet, and many more.

Lavender

Enjoy the sweet scents of summer with Lavender!

Lavender (Lavandula) is a romantic flower and every gardener should have at least one variety in their garden. They love a sunny location with good drainage. Lavender is extremely drought tolerant once it is established, but it should be watered regularly when young.

Two of the hardiest and best know varieties are the English varieties (Lavendula angustifolia) ‘Hidcote’ and ‘Munstead’. These varieties of English Lavender produce wonderfully fragrant blue-lavender coloured flowers during the summer. You can also try several new varieties of English Lavender including one called ‘Blue Royalty’. This new variety produces beautiful royal blue flowers in late spring and early summer.

Another popular variety of Lavender is the Spanish Lavender (Lavendula stoechas) ‘Anouk’. This variety produces a consistent display of flowers from June through September. To encourage them to repeatedly bloom is it best to cut them back after they produce their first set of flowers to encourage the second bloom. There is a new variety of Spanish Lavender called ‘Silver Anouk’ (Aka Silver Summer). The ‘Silver Anouk’ has beautiful silver foliage and the repeat blooming capability of the ‘Anouk’.

The Magnolias are Bursting into Bloom!

It must be April because the Magnolias are bursting into bloom and covering our streets with beautiful flower petals. There is nothing quite like the blooms of Magnolia trees and shrubs. The blooms emerge before they produce leaves allowing us to see all of the beautiful blooms that can cover the entire tree. Flowering can begin in late March and bloom through April. The latest blooming varieties are the Grandiflora or Evergreen Magnolia. These varieties bloom in May and June with large white fragrant flowers.

One of the most popular varieties is the Magnolia stellata or Star Magnolia. These small trees (or large shrubs) make an excellent focal point in a garden bed. In the spring they are covered with large white flowers that look like a star exploding in the sky.
