Now is the time to start planning flowers so that they’ll be ready to offer you a spectacular show for summer. The weather is relatively mind through most of the United States, which makes for easy planting when it comes to you and your flowers. You, the gardener, can enjoy the task of sowing a garden before temperatures are scorching. Your flowers will benefit from being planted now, because there are more possibilities for rain and little intense summer sun to wither them before then take a stronghold in the ground.
So, consider getting outside now and planting some lovely perennials that will spring to colorful life in just a couple of months or so. What should you plant? Consider the following:
Hellebore is a beauty. It’s one of the earliest perennials to bloom in a summer garden, and it offers up stunning saucer-shaped blossoms that are quite dainty. These flowers typically bloom in white, with showy markings in yellow, maroon, or pink.
The viola is the smaller cousin of the pansy. It is a delicate little blossom that flowers in late spring, if planted early enough. For summer, you can enjoy the viola in the garden or even in a window box. These flowers come in a wide variety of colors like yellow, blue, purple, and white. As a bonus, you can eat these flowers (they’re delightful in salads or on top of baked goods).
We love peony. This romantic flower can last you through spring and summer. It blooms on a large bush that produces huge, fragrant blossoms. There are several types of peonies (packed-doubles, anemone-centered, semi-doubles, and singles), and you’ll find them in many shades like red, pink, rose, salmon, yellow, and white.
