Decorating Your Spaces with Outdoor Plants

outdoor plantsAh, summer! The temperatures are warm, the skies are clear blue and the streaming sunshine beckons you to the great outdoors. No longer confined indoors , we head outside to decks, backyards and gardens. Whether sharing a meal , gathering with friends or enjoying the solitude, a beautifully landscaped space makes all the difference. From plantings to potted plants to hanging baskets, there are so many way to brighten up your outdoor area. Whether a tiny corner or a large expanse, whether urban or country – Central Square Florist has the inspiration and ideas you are looking for.

Give your outdoor space a touch of class with this Peace Lily plant. This delicate plant can’t be in direct sunlight for too long, though, so it is best under an umbrella or awning. As long as you shield it from the sear of the sun, this unique bloom will add elegance and serenity to your patio area and makes a great potted plant for a shady corner.

Of course, hanging floral baskets are always popular for outdoor decorating. These versatile arrangements can be hung along a fence or wall, or even from shepherd’s hooks along garden paths or walkways. A wide variety of seasonal blooms will provide the vibrancy and beauty you are looking for to liven up any area that needs a burst of color. Popular choices include lobelia, whose blue, white, pink, red, or violet flowers will thrive all summer; or convolvulus, a trailing plant whose purple trumpet-like flowers will spill over the edges of hanging baskets.
