Pink Color Plants
Pink can be a playful, romantic color or add upbeat energy to any space. Pink is also associated with the spring season, and these pink plants are the perfect way to make your lawn or garden even more appealing.
Pink weigela is a flowering shrub that grows under 10 feet at maturity. This stunning pink plant grows well in hardiness zones 3-9. It grows well in partial shade or full sun. The shrub blooms in the spring and is often used as a border for walkways and flower beds. The striking pink flowers contrast nicely with the dark purplish-green leaves. Some shrubs have so many vibrant blooms that the leaves barely show. Clay or silty soils are best for this plant, and it's best to fertilize the pink weigela each winter so the flowers will flourish in spring. These shrubs are easy to maintain but should be groomed each winter to make room for new spring blooms. Pink weigela is easy to take care of but should be pruned once a year to make space for fresh flowers.
Pink crepe myrtle is a beautiful, small tree that can line your sidewalk or deck. The trees originated in Asia but have become more prevalent in the U.S. in recent years. The flowers on the tree are a deep shade of pink, and some blooms have a purple tint. You can also use the pink crepe myrtle tree as a privacy hedge since the trees can grow more than 20 feet at maturity. Myrtle trees are also deer resistant, making it the perfect plant for protecting your garden if you have deer in your area. The tree grows in hardiness zoned 3-9, blooms in the summer and thrives in full sun or a combination of sun and shade. The pH of the soil for these trees to develop well should be between 5.0 and 6.5. Crepe myrtle is an ideal choice for your landscape because they are an extended blooming tree and can bloom for 60-120 days. It doesn't take the myrtle tree long to make your yard more visually appealing since it can grow a few feet in one growing season.
