Not really. Flowers are beautiful, and this is my favorite time of the year here in So, Calif. next to Fall which is prime planting season.
I prefer bulbs and perennials which I have carefully chosen and tended over the years , so that I don't have to replant each Spring except to freshen pots and plug in beds. Summer heat is so intense here that annual color struggles to stay alive. Container gardens along w/ flowering shrubs, vines, and hearty groundcovers are my best bet.
