  • Make sure you are buying the right flowers for the amount of sunlight they will get, make sure they have enough water.

  • I've had this problem, too. I've even made sure to plant flowers that require "full sun" and they still burn out. I think I have a black thumb instead of a green one.

  • I water everything very early in the morning for about an hour or so with the sprinkler. Giving it a good soak before the heat of the day helps them stay strong. I sometimes have to water my planters twice a day in this heat...we have a heat index of 106 and it is humid. We have not had rain in over a month more than a passing thunderstorm where it rained for about 4 minutes. Some summers are more dry so it just takes some extra effort to keep everything hydrated...even ourselves lol

  • Water in the evening. Make sure that you choose flowers that are zoned for your area and the sunlight you get.
