7 Top-Performing Full Sun Perennials


Hey there! Going back to some common gardening questions, one frequently asked is ‘what could be considered some of the best flowering full sun perennials for our area?’ We love full sun perennials, because #1, they come back year after year!, and #2, because they tolerate and even bask in the hot sun we get in middle Tennessee in summer! Perennials are so lovely; let's talk about seven that perform really well in our area.

1. Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia)

2. Coneflower (Echinacea)


3. Daylily (Hemerocallis) ‘Stella d’ Oro‘- there is a reason this variety is popular, it is because it blooms practically all the way from late spring until late summer with orangish yellow blooms

4. Tickseed (Coreopsis)

5. Perovskia ‘Little Spire‘

6. Bee balm (Monarda) ‘Blue Stocking‘- a pretty bluish purple striking flower that really packs a punch in mid to late summer

7. Phlox


Each one of these perennials thrive in our area and add lots of color for a large portion of the summer!
