  4. Cornflowers – they’re a striking shade of blue despite the name. They’ll continue to bloom into fall and attract hummingbirds & butterflies.
  5. Cosmos – freely flowering annual plants that are ridiculously easy to grow. They will stay in bloom for months and will hang out til the first frost. The flowers also attract bees, butterflies, and birds.
