Planting for Spring Color in Your Landscaping

spring color

In the springtime, it is nice to acknowledge and look at the colorful plants in nature. Not only are they nice to look at, but plants and flowers can also be a good source of stress relief. Do not hesitate to get vibrant plants and flowers for your house’s landscape and garden. Planting flowers is the best way to add a splash of spring color to your landscaping.

Planting for Spring Color in Your Landscaping

Here are the flowers and plants that you should be planting for the spring season:


A vibrant pink and white combination of a flower will definitely bring cuteness to your house’s landscape. These trumpet-like flowers are perfect for spring. Spring is also the best season to plant weigela flowers. They will often bloom when exposed to an efficient amount of sunlight and can partly tolerate under shade in the summer season! This flower can rebloom in the summer and fall, making it convenient to keep.


A graceful and fragrant flower that is lovely to plant in spring! This flower cannot be easily pestered because hyacinths are known to have a toxic substance in their bulbs, foliage, and the flowers themselves. It also lasts for weeks so do not worry about it withering away.


Primroses are known to appear in the early spring season and are known to be very beautiful for their range of colors. Primrose colors include white, pink, canary yellow, and deep purple. They are easy to take care of since they are a low-care perennial flower that often blooms when snow is on the ground. There are many kinds of perennials, so planting one of them is convenient since they can survive the winters


Tulip bulbs are planted in the fall for spring color. They are perennial flowers and usually fade after the first year. Therefore, they are treated as annuals which means they are planted every year. They are detectable to critters and pests, so plant them in pots where pests cannot dig underneath them.


Crocus plants are known as hard bulb flowers, and they often pop up when snow is still on the ground, Crocuses should be planted in the fall for a spring show.


Daffodils are an elegant springtime bulb flower. The perfect season to plant them is in the fall season. When planting them in the fall, they’ll bloom in the spring season. It can also be used as a sign that the spring season is finally arriving. The yellow cherry color is perfect for spring vibes! As an added bonus, rodents do not usually target these flowers.


The flower’s intense blue and purple color makes it one of the most popular annual flowers for the spring season. These spring flowers are low-growing, deer resistant, and create an outstanding aesthetic to your house’s landscape. Lobelias also attract butterflies to your garden.


Petunia flowers are big and bright, making them perfect for adding spring color to your landscaping! They bloom in a wide variety of colors, and they make a stunning display when planted close to each other. Petunias love the sunlight and will bloom all summer and late into the fall. They are easy-to-care plants and can be cold tolerant. However, they can only tolerate a light frost in the winter, so keep an eye on them. It is advised that you wait until after your last frost date to plant petunias.
