Tis the Season: Perennials Prepare to Bloom
April and May are big months for perennial bloomers. These perennial flowers are typically a strong component of any flower garden. Most perennials are very low maintenance plants, and produce a wide variety of color in Spring making them ideal for fostering a gorgeous Spring spectacle.
Plant larger perennials in the early Fall months. Most smaller perennials do well being planted in the springtime. These rainy months provide plenty of moisture for growth, and the sun is just warm enough to create a cozy niche for newly buried seeds. It is the perfect time for seeds to find a welcoming home in the soil.
With a functional arrangement, any garden can burst bright with color yearly. Planting perennials will assure that this phenomenon occurs all over again each Spring. Take a look at a few of the most popular perennials this season.
Peruvian Lily (Alstromeria)
These flowers will provide a splash of yellow and orange. They’re great for making a personalized arrangement as well. Easy to maintain and great reproducers, these plants will bloom over and over again when they’re properly maintained.
Hybrids of this particular perennial can produce an insane range of color. Depending on what plants are the parents, these lilies can bloom in orange, purple, lavender, pink, or even red. They’re very versatile, and have been around for quite some time. They’re well adapted.
‘Harmon’ Iris (Iris reticulate)
Adding a touch of wild blue or purple shades, the ‘Harmony’ Iris does best when planted in larger clumps. It can be easily overshadowed by larger plants if they are spread out too far. They tend to be short and lower to the ground. When they bloom, there will be a blanket of rich color in the garden’s bed.
If there’s any worry of deer, this flower will be just fine. They’re deer resistant, and they love the sunlight. Plant them in moist, well-drained soil with plenty of sunshine to warm their roots.
Daffodils are a staple of spring for any garden. They are tough and jovial all at the same time. Their bright yellow trumpet blooms are not to palatable to deer, but humans will bask in their beauty as they bloom over and over each year.
Daffodils have been said to be even more versatile of a plant than tulips. They are well known for their ability to thrive among many other perennials. They may die off a bit earlier than some of the other perennials in the garden, but they’ll blend nicely into the ground.
Red Dragon (Geum chiloense)
Every spring flower garden needs a brilliant explosion of red among the varied display of its fellow perennial bloomers. The scarlet blooms of the Red Dragon flower will easily fill that role. They have an elegant wildflower look to them and are set in a thick bushel of greenery at the base of their long stalks. They are also great for attracting beautiful butterflies to the garden.Shop our garden store.
