Spring Perennial Flowers to Plant
This beautiful, free-flowering violet flower is sure to get your garden in the spring spirit. Its drooping, bell-shaped flowers can add an elegant touch to your landscape that will last from early summer to fall.
With its sweet fragrance and soft color, Lilac shrubs remain a spring favorite every year. Lilacs most often come in purple and are low maintenance, making them easy to care for if you like to keep gardening simple.
Classic and never out of style, daffodils can bring a nice touch to your spring gardening and landscaping this season. This flower is loved for its trumpet shaped structure that is set against a star-shaped background of petals.
Noted for its illuminating yellow and blotched center, this perennial is sure to be a favorite for its resemblance to the sun. What better way to brighten up your landscape this spring than with golden blooms?
Best planted later in the spring, roses are timeless and will give your landscape a classic look as well. Use red for a romantic feel or other colors to add variety to your landscape.
With a full clustered head of flowers, this hydrangea is sure to fluff up your landscape. The striking blue of the petals contrasts eloquently against the dark stems and leaves, and will even re-bloom for your pleasure.
Other Flowers to Plant for Spring Spirit
Technically it’s a perennial, but normally pansies are planted as an annual or biennial flower. Because it thrives in cooler weather, the beginning of spring is the perfect time for pansy planting. The pansy is also a spring classic because of its variety in petal color and ease in planting. You can get a summer blooming variety or a winter blooming variety!
Tulips are often thought of as one of the identifiers that spring has arrived, so it is a staple flower to have in your lawn. Tulips also range in height giving you options on where and how you want to place them. However, planting tulip bulbs can be a trickier gardening technique though, and it usually happens at the end of fall, so start planning this summer on planting tulip bulbs for next year!
The popularity of poppies is often understated as this flower comes in many varieties and is native to many parts of the world. This flower’s bold colors make it a great filler flower, but it can also stand out on its own.
- Sweet Peas
There are a couple strains of perennial sweet peas, but most varieties are annual flowers. If you like a subtle, sweet scent, then you will love stepping outside with sweet pea flowers planted in your yard. You will want to plant these flowers early in the spring as they thrive in cooler weather. Many varieties will climb as they grow, so you’ll want to plant them along a fence or provide a trellis.
