What are the Spring Flowers?
The spring season remains one of the most beautiful times of the year. It runs from the beginning of March until the end of May.
This is the time of year when birds sing, trees bloom, and flowers bloom in our gardens, brightening our days with color and scent.
During this time of year, certain flowers are in the spotlight:
It is often thought by gardeners that the appearance of crocuses signals the start of spring. After a long, chilly winter what can be more joyous to a gardener than the arrival of spring?
For a gorgeous early spring display, many gardeners plant spring-blooming crocus in their lawns.
Crocuses don’t have any particular feeding requirements, allow Mother Nature and winter precipitation do the work.
They appear in late winter to early spring, sometimes even while there's still snow on the ground.
Their heights, flower sizes, shapes, and even colors are surprisingly different. In a moist soil, they will grow quickly into drifts and produce a lot of plants for sharing with friends.
Display a few snowdrops in a vase to bring the magic of snowdrops inside.
The hyacinth is a beautiful bulbous plant that heralds spring. Your green space will become a little piece of paradise on earth thanks to the beauty and scent of this flower.
The flowers of this plant have a star shape and they gather in very tight clusters with a very good fragrance at the end of the foliage. The hyacinth flower comes in several colors: white, yellow, pink or orange.
Caring for this plant is easy. A light watering is sufficient; too much humidity can cause the bulb to rot;
The Narcissus - Daffodils
Spring isn't complete without the lovely daffodils. The blooming of this plant occurs during the month of March and April.
The best time to plant it is between September and November. For a good flowering in the spring, the bulb-tip of daffodils must be oriented upwards.
Easy to care
This plant is easy to grow. It is actually advisable to cut the leaves only after they are very yellow. The plant needs this step to build up reserves for the next flowering. Regular care can still be provided after flowering.
A spring flower par excellence!
In the spring, it is a fragrant bulbous flower that decorates our gardens. Gardens, terraces, balconies or interiors, the tulip is the spring flower par excellence!
It is part of the Liliaceae family, and its size varies between 20 and 75 cm. Ideally, tulip bulbs should be planted between the start of the autumn and mid-December to bloom in the spring.
To ensure successful flowering, certain conditions need to be met:
1. The depth of the hole housing the tulip bulbs should be 2 to 3 times the size of the tulip bulb;
2. Choose a space where there is a lot of sunlight;
3. For healthy growth, add humus soil to the hole before putting the tulip bulbs in it.
This flower requires very basic care. Once it is planted properly, it will grow without any help.
The brightly colored, charming little “faces” of violas are a welcome sight on chilly mornings. In mild climates, they’ll last all winter long.
Years of delight
There are over 500 different species and they are annuals and perennials. They self-seed freely, so they'll often pop up again next year on their own and give you years of delight.
Violas are usually planted in the spring; in climates without winter frost, they can be planted in the fall. Although they thrive in the full sun, it's the light and not the heat that they require.
The plants will bloom continuously, but if you deadhead the spent flowers, blossoms will be more plentiful.
Known as the queens of winter flowers, camellias are attractive evergreen shrubs that are highly prized for their beautiful blooms.
This evergreen shrub has exquisite blooms in late winter to early spring. There are thousands of varieties to choose from, with white, pink or red flowers, which can either be single or double. Camellias do best in a partially shaded spot in your garden, sheltered from wind.
Bid winter goodbye with cheerful spring color!
