- Pansies and Violas
The smiling faces and colors of violets and pansies are irresistible. Pansies are the larger flashy version of their compact and exquisite viola cousins. Although they look delicate, they can handle a cold snap or two with ease and grow easily in cool seasons. These flowers come in a variety of bright to soft colors and are usually the first sign of spring in the center of the garden.
When the temperature is no longer below 40 ° F at night, the temperature stabilizes at 60 ° F during the day, or the soil temperature is above 45 ° F, place the pansy plant underground. Although pansies are classified as biennial or perennial, they are usually cultivated as annual. If protected in the winter, they may return the following spring. Daisies and violets can be planted directly on the ground, leaving a cheerful color on the garden bed, but they can also thrive on the flower pots and window sills on the porch.
Like pansy, carnation flourishes in cool weather. This means that spring is the ideal time to plant these plants. Before planting, ensure that the outdoor temperature stabilizes at least 40 ° F. These flowers are usually very fragrant, with a hint of clove in the aroma. The color of carnation is usually pink, ranging from deep red to magenta, to lighter, delicate tones.
Be sure to plant carnation in a place where you can get at least 6 hours of sunlight every day. Remove perennial varieties and you will receive flower rewards from spring to summer. If you plant once a year, leave dying flowers on the plants at the end of the season, so they can be replanted next year.
There is no need to wait until after the last frost before placing the goldfish grass in the ground. You can plant these annual beauties in the field a few weeks before the last frost in your area, as long as the soil is feasible and does not freeze too hard. Goldfish grass is the pillar of the cottage garden, with almost all the colors and tones of a rainbow. When they grow to three to four inches tall, pinch the stem back into two leaves, and the plant will branch more.
Although goldfish grass is one of the earliest flowering plants in spring, it cannot cope well with high temperatures. In a cool climate, they may bloom from spring to autumn. But in hot summer areas, goldfish grass will stop blooming. Plant them in the shade and keep them happy for as long as possible. Removing used flowers will help to re bloom.
- Creeping Phlox
Like alyssum, prostrate phlox is a slow-growing plant with a height of no more than 6 inches, but it blooms with stunning colorful flowers in spring. However, the creeping oleander is a perennial plant, so you can expect it to return year after year. When it is grown in large quantities, it is particularly amazing (available in pink, purple, blue, and white). "If planted after the last frost in your area, creeping oleander trees work best, but if grown in sunny conditions, they will soon bloom in late spring.
Hyacinth is one of the most popular flowers in spring. They have colorful petals and elegant fragrance, which can add color and aroma to the garden in spring.
Hyacinth requires sufficient sunlight and breathable soil to grow, so it needs to be planted in a location with sufficient sunlight and good drainage. After planting, ensure that the plants are given sufficient water. During the first few days of planting, it is necessary to water the bulbs appropriately, but do not over water them to avoid causing the roots of the plant to become too wet. Hyacinths can generally bloom 6-8 weeks after planting.
In short, spring is a season suitable for planting flowers. The flowers suitable for planting also include roses, carnations, winter jasmine, and so on. Choosing suitable flowers for planting can not only decorate your home, but also add spice to your life.
