Plant babies need to be watered, obviously. As a newbie gardener who may or may not have a track record for killing plants (guilty), it’s easy to forget, so it’s worth reiterating.
During peak growing season, especially on sunny days, Bloomscape’s “plant mom,” Joyce Mast recommends watering your plants every day or every other day. “If you see drooping, wilting plants or burnt edges on the leaves, that indicates that they need water,” she says. “Remove the spent blooms from blooming annuals like geraniums, petunias, and dahlias. This will encourage new growth and also keep the plant clean and free of anything dead or decaying material.”

These tall plants (3 to 6 feet tall), also known as Oxeye sunflowers, covered with full yellow-orange flowers do very well in warm southern climates and are a good choice for poor soils. They tolerate drought conditions, though they bloom better when given regular moisture. In shady conditions, the flower stalks will need to be staked to provide support. Closely related to true sunflowers, which are annual plants, H. helianthoides is a perennial species with smaller, more profuse flowers. It blooms from June to August. Deadheading helps prolong blooms.
