Spring weather can be unpredictable, but this does not mean that you should leave your garden to look like it is still in winter. Having the right flowers for early spring will ensure that your garden is bursting with colour as soon as the ground starts to thaw. There are a number of early spring flowers that you should look at planting to wake up your garden.
You know spring is just around the corner when you can spot your crocus flowers blooming through the bed of snow to announce their colour and ring in a new season! You can get crocus flowers in a variety of colours including pink, orange, yellow, blue, purple, and red. No matter what colour your crocus flowers are, you will always be getting something vibrant that makes the brown shades that the end of winter brings.
During the late winter and early spring months (February and March), have some coverings on hand to keep them protected and to get them used to the severe weather change.
While the name might not be the most inviting, you should never overlook these cheery little dangling flowers that run along the length of each branch. Bleeding Heart is a welcome sight at the start of spring, but you will have to look quickly because the flowers will disappear as soon as the days lengthen and the warmth comes. This should not deter you from planting these flowers because the sight of them is worthwhile.
It is best to plant Bleeding Heart in partial shade, but more sun can be handled when the temperature is cool. The ideal soil will be moist and rich, but it needs to have good drainage. The roots of the plant will rot when it is in very wet soil.
Bluebells are a flower of poetry and there are some people who feel that spring has not arrived until they see these flowers. These flowers will not start out blue, but will transform from pink buds to blue flowers. There is no denying the charm of Virginia Bluebells as they dangle in clusters around the early spring garden.
These flowers will also disappear shortly after they arrive. However, you should not worry because their job for the season is done. As they disappear, they will leave room for other plants to shine. You should only look at growing these flowers is you have a cool and wet climate because this is where they will thrive.
