Late Summer Blooms to Attract Butterflies and Hummingbirds



It is not too late to make your outdoor space amazing so you can enjoy the rest of your summer. Bringing nature into your backyard creates a calm and cooling vibe to help you relax all summer long. Butterflies and hummingbirds are the perfect animals to create the perfect relaxing feeling you might be looking for. We found the five best blooms that will attract all the butterflies and hummingbirds to your backyard this summer season.



SUNFLOWERS
The most obvious flower to add to your outdoor space are tall vibrant sunflowers. This flower couldn’t be more perfect to invest in now as it’s blooming season begins now and lasts through fall. Sunflowers are easy to maintain; all they need is to be planted in an area with high sun-exposure and watered lightly. Sunflowers can be purchased at any home improvement store such as Lowes, at your local Walmart store, or a flower nursery near you. 


COSMOS
Cosmos is another flower that will help attract mystifying hummingbirds and colorful butterflies. Cosmos are a daisy-like flower that attracts birds and butterflies due to their taste. They come in varying sizes, depending on your taste and space, and can grow as large as five-feet tall. Cosmos can be grown from spring until frost, making this plant perfect to plant now.


ZINNIA
Zinnia are gorgeous puffy flowers that make a statement. They stand out in any backyard or garden and grow fast and easily, no matter how green your thumb is (or isn’t). To get the best results, make sure they are planted in full sunlight. Zinnias will bring all the butterflies to your backyard, helping to create that calming feeling you may be looking for.


BEE BALM
Bee Balm is a nectar-filled flower that appears in a round shape. Bee Balm comes in a variety of colors including lavender, red, and pink. This flower grows well in direct sunlight, but also does well in shade if you are living a warmer climate. The best part about Bee Balm is that it stays in small clumps and clusters, not growing rampantly in your backyard and easily contained. With their taste, this is the perfect flower to attract both butterflies and hummingbirds.


HYSSOP
The hyssop plant is crucial in a pollinator garden and it attracts both butterflies and hummingbirds. This bloom comes in blue hues, dark-purple, lavender, peach and many more. Hyssop is also known as the “hummingbird mint” and is a source of nectar for the hummingbirds. It blooms heaviest in the summer, so now’s the time to plant! Hyssop can be found at your local Home Depot or local flower nursery.

Why Sunrooms?

There is a difference between a house and a home. A house is a building inhabited by individuals, most often relatives. However, a home is filled with love, togetherness, and memories. What better place to make those memories than a Four Seasons sunroom? You may be wondering what makes a sunroom the right addition to your house. Below we highlight five reasons why we believe a sunroom is the perfect way to make a house feel more like a home.

Sunrooms are highly versatile, and can be used for whatever you imagine. Picture family game nights in the moonlight, friendly gatherings as the sun sets, and a quiet morning reading a newspaper with a cup of coffee.
