Gardens bursting with bright color are a welcome sight each spring. As early-blooming perennials and bulbs begin to sprout out of the ground and colorful annuals become available, the landscape starts to come alive once again. Pots and containers are also a great home for any spring blooming plant and add interest and color wherever they’re placed.
Create a brilliant spring arrangement with the first annuals of the season. Cool-weather annuals like pansies or violas create stunning waves of color. Add a few touches of green, like a small ornamental grass or evergreen leaves for accent. Soon other cool-weather annuals including snapdragon, petunia and dianthus will be available. Include herbs like thyme or rosemary for texture, or add drought-tolerant succulents like hens and chicks for added contrast.
The container is almost just as important and is always fun to pick out. They can complement or contrast with their surroundings and should highlight the blooms planted within — not overpower the arrangement. Consider the size of the area or the surrounding landscape where the arrangement will be placed when selecting a container so that it fits well, and ensure the container has drain holes. Ask a Garden Center associate for assistance with your spring containers and flower choices and bring some color to your landscape after a long winter!
