Garden Plants in Flower June - Bulbs, Shrubs, Trees | Flowers and Colour


Standby for all the herbaceous and other perennials that will be coming our way, for the month of June isn't just named 'Flaming June' because of the sunshine. We look to this month for a blaze of flower colour on shrubs and perennials. The spring bulbs will have gently taken us into this the month of the perennial surely. I wait to be surprised and contradicted as always, for this is gardening!

Hoping to have many suggestions and observations of gardeners worldwide about what is flowering in the garden during June. Bulbs, Perennials, Shrubs, Alpines, Trees. We want them all on record. You have the easy part - name and off to us in an email. We will do the rest on these pages - hopefully keeping up with you in what must surely be a manic month for flower sightings!

Just to get you in the right mood, we will start the page off with a few past observations, and immediately below, give you a taste of what flowering gems are going to be seen this month of June in a garden near you.
