The best summer flowers for your garden

Flowers are ideal for adding a splash of colour and cheer to any terrace or garden, but not all of them can withstand the sun's rays during the summer months.

At Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nova Mallorca, we know that plants and flowers play a crucial role in adding colour and charm to your home's exterior. As a result, we've compiled a list of flowers that can withstand the summer heat.


Five flowers ideal for summer garden decoration


Many flowers bloom in summer and can beautify the outdoor spaces of any home during the warmer months. Here are some of our favourites:


One of the most popular flowers is lavender, which stands out for its hardiness and wonderful aroma that transports us to Provence.

It is also a low-maintenance plant, as you only need to place it in a location with plenty of sunlight and water it regularly. This way, you can enjoy it even in the winter.


Geraniums are the ultimate summer flower! They adorn balconies, terraces and gardens with their undeniable beauty. They are low-water plants; watering them twice or three times a week is sufficient to keep them in excellent condition.


Bougainvillaea is one of those plants you have to see to believe! Its gorgeous flowers and eye-catching shape transform any space into a little slice of paradise. This typical climbing plant is at its best in summer, when it begins to bloom majestically and reveals its imposing beauty.


Astilbes are carefree, summer-blooming perennials. Between June and August, these plants produce tall plumes of red, pink, lilac and white flowers that will bring colour to your terrace, garden or balcony.

If you want to decorate the outside of your house with astilbes, place them in a bright area that does not receive direct sunlight. Partially shaded areas are also suitable for prolonging the blooming period of the plants.


Pink Kisses is a new variety of pot carnations with beautiful pink, slightly fragrant flowers that will become a fantastic addition to your garden or balcony. Carnations are also available in white and other intense and vivid colours.

Although it is a hardy and easy-to-grow summer flower, it is best to keep it in a semi-shady spot during the hottest days.
