Posted by Krishna Karthik on

We are well aware that our beautiful nation hosts many summer flowers, right from the subfreezing climate of the Himalayas to the warm coastal regions.

Regardless of rain or shine, an assortment of colors dot the countryside and gardens throughout the country, as summer flowers burst in a variety of shapes and sizes that add beauty and vibrancy to India.

At this time of the year, summers are right round the corner, and it is time for us to discover what’s perfect for the over 30 degree weather. The summer season spreads from March to May with monsoon season beginning in June. Even though gardens require comparatively more nurturing and care during summers, the variety of flowers that bloom in this particular season make it worth the effort.

To make your garden colorful and lush, here are the Top 10 Summer Flowers in India :

1. Marigold

These bright flowers are a perfect choice to add color to any garden. The color of marigold varies from light yellow to golden brown. It’s a common flower that is used for various purposes, including religious and medicinal. The pigment extracted from the flower can be used for food coloring. Even better, marigolds tend to keep pests away, so you can plant them near flowers that are eaten by bugs and use it as a natural and beautiful form of pest control.

2. Lotus

Lotus is a common water plant and is the national flower of India. Lotuses are generally available in shades of bright pink and white. One of the characteristics of the lotus is that its petals open by dawn and close down slowly from afternoon to evening. This is a delicate flower which will surely be a fun and colorful addition to any garden.

4. Hibiscus

These gorgeous flowers are often associated with the tropics because of their lush, full-bodied bloom. Hibiscus plants can get quite big, so plant them in an area where they’ll have plenty of room to grow. As long as a hibiscus is in direct sunlight, it will bloom and grow all season long, and come up stronger year after year.

5. Sunflowers

The most appropriately named of the lot, sunflowers are beautiful yellow flowers that will dot your garden, giving it a vibrant feel. These plants are good at withstanding extreme temperatures. It is important to note that they are not to be over watered, as this loosens the soil and can weaken the plant.

6. Musk Rose

The musk rose grows throughout India. This plant clusters at the end of its branches producing gorgeous and fragrant white flowers. The musk rose starts to bloom in May. Dark rose hips, ranging from purple-brown to dark red, form when the flower finishes blooming. Its beauty can easily light up any garden.

7. Lilies

I admire lilies for their weather hardiness. They do not need much to survive in extreme weather conditions. If the sun is too strong they let the leaves dry, but the bulb remains conscious to life. It forgives the sun, and blooms again with ease whenever it feels safe enough to come out of its harsh surroundings.

8. Zinnia

Zinnias are certainly among the easiest flowers for anyone, whether just beginning or experienced in gardening, to germinate and grow directly from seed. Their easy culture, heat tolerance and colorful mid to late summer show, blooming hard when other annuals are spent, make them well worth exploring. A favorite of the butterflies, Zinnia can hold a prideful place in your summer garden.

9. Petunias

They are a perfect choice for hanging baskets and planters. To add some cheer and color, you can place them between shrubs or hang them around the garden.

10. Pansies
