Spring into Color -

Get ready to celebrate spring with vibrant blooms and sweet aromas! As a Connecticut homeowner, you can enjoy the beautiful blooms of early and late-blooming plants by adding them to your yard or garden. Plus, you can help promote biodiversity by attracting pollinators like bees and butterflies. We’ve got you covered with a variety of plants that are perfect for the Connecticut area.

To start, let's talk about the difference between perennials and annuals. Annuals are plants that live for one growing season, while perennials regrow every spring. Annuals provide fast growth and a quick splash of color, making them a good choice if you're okay with replanting them yearly. Perennials, on the other hand, are a long-term investment that grows slowly but is worth it for their lasting beauty.

Some popular perennial flowers to consider include peonies, daylilies, hostas, irises, lavender, black-eyed Susans, asters, tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, crocuses, lilies of the valley, and lilacs. These heartier plants can handle the colder spring weather and will come up early in the season. For annuals, pansies, zinnias, sunflowers, marigolds, and petunias are great choices for bright colors and multiple sizes.

When it comes to planting, follow the directions on the product packaging for optimal results. Early spring blooms like sweet peas, pansies, petunias, and snapdragons can handle cooler temperatures, while other species like gladiolas, roses, sunflowers, and summer lilies will bloom throughout the spring and summer. Make sure to pay attention to the sun exposure requirements of each plant and water accordingly. For example, plants like zinnias, marigolds, and sunflowers thrive in full sun and are drought-tolerant, while begonias, fuchsia, and impatiens prefer shade or indirect sunlight.

By adding a mix of perennials and annuals, you can enjoy a longer and more intermittent bloom period with varying hues. Not only will your yard look beautiful, but you'll also be promoting a healthy environment for pollinators. So, grab your gardening gloves and get ready to enjoy the beauty of spring!
