Spring is almost here! Along with beautiful blooms, spring brings more time outdoors with the family and more time to enjoy Florida’s beauty. The sun is shining and there’s no better time to get your lawn in shape for the season than now!
Here are six springtime must-haves to add to your property:
Known for their lush, green leaves and fragrant blossoms, gardenia shrubs are the perfect plant to have during spring in Florida. Besides the stunning white flowers, these shrubs attract pollinators to help your garden thrive. Gardenias need full or partial sun with well-drained soil and good air circulation.
These Floridian favorites produce beautifully bright blossoms from late February to early April. Azaleas are also very versatile for landscaping as they can be used for mass borders, specimen plants, foundation planting and more. These plants grow best in areas with filtered sunlight and organic soils.
Long-lasting and low maintenance, Caladiums are a beautiful way to add color to your landscape without a lot of hassle. Each Caladium leaf is one-of-a-kind – you’ll never find the same exact pattern twice! This unique foliage can be easily damaged by strong winds, so it’s best to plant them in a protected area.
Spring is the perfect time to add bright plants like Cannas in your garden. These large tropical plants bloom stunning, gladiolus-like flowers in shades of pink, red, yellow, orange and white colors that attract honeybees and other pollinators. Cannas grow well in full sun with moist soil.
Because these flowers can attract pollinators, ward off pests and add a beautiful pop of color to your landscape, Marigolds are a springtime must. Marigolds can bloom in a variety of colors, including orange, red, yellow and even burgundy. These plants do best in well-drained soil with plenty of sun.
This native tree is a great addition to any Florida landscape. Blooming in both spring and fall, the tree’s showy blossoms can be red, white or cream and come in a variety of combinations. Flowering Dogwoods have beautiful green foliage in spring and grow well in partial shade with fertile, well-drained soil.
