Best Flowers to Plant for Summer
The Best Flowers to Plant for Your Astrological Sign
You rely on your horoscope to enlighten you on everything from when to move to what cocktail you should be drinking. Now, astrologer Kim Allen is breaking down how the stars can also guide you to your best garden yet.
Aries know what they want and they want it now – which is why Allen suggests you plant zinnias or impatiens, which don't need a lot of attention or, err, patience. (See what we did there?)
If you're a Taurus, you like the slow, steady, sensuous pleasures in life, like lilacs. To attract love, plant violets, which are ruled by Venus, the planet of love, and some patchouli for good measure, which brings money.
Gemini are the smarty pants who are looking for intellectual connections with others – so Allen suggests planting rosemary, that help bring mental clarity. Fragrant plants like lavender and lily of the valley help clear your mind as well.
If you're a cancer, you're all about making the people around you feel secure and nurtured. So, naturally, Allen recommends you plant jasmine, which gives calming vibes. Urbanites, potted plants have the same relaxing effect.
Leos bring a positive energy and vitality everywhere you go, so Allen suggests you plant sunflowers. Camomile and St. John's Wart attract positive energy and good vibes, too.
If you could describe Virgos in one word, it would be workaholic. You're constantly thinking about your career – so plant some valerian, a sleep aid, so you get some shut-eye. Verbena and echinacea's healing qualities also help you relax when you're not on the clock.
Libras are hopeless romantics – and don't daisies conjure up images of asking yourself, "He loves me, he loves me not?" Roses, the flower of love, also give you warm and fuzzy feelings.
Little known fact: Scorpios are the most passionate sign in the zodiac, which means your blooms should be just as vivacious as you are. Consider planting uva ursi – they look like little wombs, so they're practically full of life, right?
Sagittarius are jet-setters who are happiest when they're on the road. Magnolias are larger than life – just like you.
Capricorns aren't afraid to tackle the next big project, which is why it's unsurprising Allen suggests you plant laurel. Why laurel? In ancient Greece, Olympic winners were awarded laurel crowns in honor of their victory. You got this.
You're a mover and a shaker who brings people together – and a dreamer, too, so Allen chose the starflower, which plays to both the dreamy and ambitious parts of your personality. The spikenard – which helps encourage your lofty visions– would serve you well as you try to focus on ways to improve the world.
It's no secret that the water sign is one of the more creative, psychic signs in the zodiac, which is why Allen suggests you plant the lotus, which is often used in spiritual ceremonies in Hinduism and Buddhism. Pisces are known for being night owls, which makes nicotiana – which flowers at night – another perfect addition to your garden.
