We are still in the middle of Summer. Do you want to do garden landscape design with blooming plants for your Minnesota garden for late summer and fall? In garden landscape design, incorporating perennials and annuals into your garden design is a great idea, since you will be able to include fresh blooms showing up throughout the season. It is pivotal to consider when each flower blooms, the sunlight requirements and how frequently each flower needs to be desired to allow for optimal growth. There are some perennials that will bloom only for weeks, whereas others for the entire summer. Due to those gaps in the blooming cycle, it is beneficial to incorporate several annual flowers in prime spots, since annual flowers can offer consistent color until the late Fall.
