    Hollyhocks (Alcea rosea)

    Butterflies and hummingbirds flock to this old-fashioned favorite, which is well suited for growing along walls and fences. Tall, sturdy stems support purple, pink, white, or yellow flowers. 'Chater's Double Hybrid' bears double flowers from early to midsummer, in shades of red, apricot, and yellow against rounded, light-green leaves.

    Grows 6 to 8 feet tall and 18 to 24 inches wide in USDA Hardiness Zones 3 to 9; full sun.

    Hydrangea (Hydrangea aborescens)

    Known for its dazzling flower heads that can reach 6 inches wide, this species was voted one of the 75 greatest plants for gardens by the American Horticultural Society. 'Annabelle' bears massive 12-inch-diameter rounded clusters of white flowers over medium green, pointed leaves; blooms from June to September.

    Grows 3 to 5 feet tall and 4 to 6 feet wide in USDA Hardiness Zones 4 to 9; partial shade.
