Magical encounter with spring

Its time when sun is up with scorching heat and heatwaves will start in near by time.Spring annuals are at last blooming stage and most of them have withered off.

Here its time to enjoy the last burst of colors in garden before the temperature touches 40 degree celsius.


Most hardy annuals that survive serious drought conditions and can be saved for next year

Everlasting or Helichrysum


One of the late spring annual but worthy the wait.

Amaryllis Lily

Springtime lover hippeastrum blooms with onset of spring


Hibiscus flowers rise up with advent of spring and gives  blooms till harsh summer heatwaves have not started                                                                                                                                          

Phlox will be missed till another spring

Whereas Summer can kill plants make them wither off,but there are some hardy plants that give color to the otherwise dry part of summer.                                                                            


Spider lily

To my surprise my Asparagus fern bloomed first time thereby complimenting its attractive foliage

One of those heavy blossoms of Cherry tomatoes 

Nothing tastes better then home grown tomatoes that too from seeds.

There is a fruiting shrub known as Phalsa plant or Grewia asiatica which has some beautiful flowers with much more tastier tangy ,sweet berries                                                          

When we draw towards Fragrance of flower that one single flower that is enough to turn your head towards its fragrance and beauty 

We can grow marigold for most part of the year except the most harsh summertime



  1. Thank you for this wonderful list of lovely flowers that can grow in the heat. Here in Alberta, we have hot summers and cold winters, and I am hoping to grow some of these beauties this year. I'm not a good gardener, but every few years I try again!

  2. I didn't know purslane flowered. We usually eat the plant that grows wild in the backyard. Maybe this year I'll baby some purslane to full growth for it to flower.
