Beginning with June, the summer flowers replace those of early spring, many of them continuing in bloom through July, August, and even September. As a rule, perhaps, we may say that they are more hardy than spring flowers, since they are obliged to endure greater heat and drought. Roadside plants and weeds now flourish, as well as many which seek the shade of cool woods. The list following includes those flowers which come into bloom first in June.
