Plant These Flowers For A Burst Of Color In Your Late-Summer Window Boxes


Late summer is the perfect time for window boxes, and there’s no better way to spruce up your home than with flowers. Here are some of my favorite plants that will make any window box look stunning:


Ageratum (also known as Sweet William or Wild Geranium) is a perennial flower that grows in summer and fall, making it a good choice for window boxes. Geraniums are easy to grow and can be planted in any sunny spot with well-drained soil. They thrive in hot weather, so don’t worry if your window box gets too hot—they’ll still bloom just fine!

Geraniums have large blooms that last between 6–8 weeks before they fade away. The flowers come in many different colors: pink, red, purple, and even white depending on what variety you choose. However, all geraniums will eventually turn brownish-green after blooming, which might make these plants look unattractive at first glance, but don’t worry-the beautiful foliage underneath will keep them looking fresh throughout summer!


Petunias are perennial flowers that can be grown in full sun or partial shade. They do best in rich, well-drained soil and are easy to grow, propagating easily through division. Petunias make attractive borders or edgings for your window boxes.

If you are looking for a flower that will attract butterflies, the Rudbeckia is hardy and easy to grow. They can be used in flower arrangements or placed in your window boxes!


Nasturtiums are one of the easiest plants to grow and have a long blooming season. They’re also drought tolerant, so you can add them to your window boxes even if you don’t have much rainfall.

Nasturtiums add color to late-summer gardens. This plant is native to Mexico, but its popularity has spread around the world due to its attractive flowers that vary widely in color from pinkish-reds (called “pink”) to orange-reds (called “orange”). The blooms open up quickly after pollination occurs in early springtime—just about two weeks after planting!

  • Salvia is a genus of flowering plants that includes over 900 species.
  • Salvia is a member of the mint family and is related to common herbs like sage and mint, but it has its unique characteristics.
  • You can grow salvia from seed or cuttings, but you’ll need to start with young plants because they don’t like being transplanted too much or left out in cold weather for long periods.


Verbena is a perennial, meaning it will return year after year. It’s easy to grow and can be planted any time of year in the window box or garden bed. The plant has a long flowering period, so you’ll get plenty of flowers all summer long!

Verbena is drought tolerant, deer resistant, and low maintenance—you won’t have to water it often (if at all). This plant attracts butterflies as well as hummingbirds, who love its bright green leaves that turn yellow in the fall.

These plants are easy to grow and can be grown in small spaces. They’ll attract bees and butterflies, as well as hummingbirds who will come back year after year to feed on the nectar from their blossoms.


Don’t forget to give your plants lots of water and keep them in a sunny spot. You can also add some soil amendments like peat moss or compost to help the plants grow strong and healthy. If you want, try adding some fertilizer every other week so they will stay lush throughout the season!
