Neighborhood Guide

Which Summer Flowers are Blooming Near You?

Each neighborhood has its signature look: Uptown is jazzy and colorful, Wicker Park is classy and artsy, and the South Loop is contemporary and cool. With so much variety, it’s only natural that the city is inhabited by neighborhood-distinct foliage as well. From one area to the next, flowers help define the vibe for the summer festivities.

 

Lincoln Park has Hydrangeas.

Hydrangeas

These are no ordinary flowers. The hydrangeas that line the residential sidewalks in LP can grow several feet tall, with blooms the size of your head. The best part? From dark plum to pale blue, these flowers provide Lincoln Park with beautiful color all summer long.

Edgewater is known for its Bleeding Hearts.

Hearts

The shady gardens near Hollywood Beach, also known as Osterman Beach or Ardmore Beach, provide the perfect light for these dramatic flowers.

Pilsen is overflowing with Sundrops.

Sundrop

Sundrops give this already colorful neighborhood even more to smile about. It’s hard not to feel sunny while gazing at these buttery little flowers that also attract some spectacular butterflies.

Roscoe Village is marked by Alliums.

Alliums

A member of the onion family, these flowers usually bloom in mid June, but this year in Roscoe Village they’re cropping up early. These medium-sized purple bulbs prefer drier soil, and the village’s relative distance from the lake helps them thrive.

Hyde Park has an abundance of Knockout Roses.

Roses

The University of Chicago campus is absolutely brimming with these hearty, gorgeous pink flowers. The bright, shadeless areas help these fragrant and fast-growing beauties bloom all the way through autumn.

 

Chicago offers the best of both worlds: industrial lines and abundant greenery. Whether it’s daisies or tulips, hydrangeas or bleeding hearts, our city is bursting at the seams with flowers, and the summer’s just begun!
