Bright colors can enhance the beauty of your yard and what better way to bring color than with flowers and plants? Blues, reds, yellows and purples can make a color splash across your yard when the right flowers and plants are in place. If you want your yard to be bright and colorful all year round, consider adding seasonal plants to your landscape design.
Each region is different for planting, but one flower embodies spring in most areas of the country: tulips. One of the first flowers to bloom, tulips are a gorgeous way to begin the spring. These bulb flowers need to be planted in the fall to begin unfolding in late March through May, depending on where you live. Daffodils, pansies, lilies and irises are other popular spring flowers.
There are so many flowers that can last all summer long. Roses are some of the most popular, with many varieties and colors to choose. Daisies, marigolds and many others can thrive in the hot summer months with the right care.
In the fall you need flowers that can withstand colder nights. Some options include chrysanthemums, Iberis autumn beauty, heliopsis, sumac and ornamental kale.
While most colder climates cannot offer winter flowers, there are other plants that can add color to your yard. Consider bushes, shrubs and trees with bright berries or leaves. Holly, Japanese maples and cotoneaster are some of the many options to brighten the cold winter months.
