Whether you’re introducing ideas to a new customer or planning out beds for existing ones, spring flowers will be on the brain. Take a look at some of the spring blossoms that are sure to brighten up your customer’s landscape and bring a bit of eye-catching appeal to the overall aesthetics.
Snowdrop anemone (Anemone sylvestris)
Snowdrop anemones are fragrant and bright clusters. When cooler temperatures arrive in the fall, the plant typically will put on a second bloom show. They can grow up to 6 inches tall and 12 inches wide.
Hellebore (Helleborus niger)
Sometimes called the Christmas rose, hellebores can produce delicate spring flowers that are surprisingly resilient. They can tolerate light frost in warmer environments, and can grow up to 12 inches tall and 18 inches wide.
Bluestar (Amsonia hubrichtii)
Bluestars can bridge the gap between spring and fall, and feature star-shaped, light blue flowers in the spring. In the fall, the foliage begins to turn a golden-yellow. They can grow up to 3 feet tall and 4 feet wide.
‘Grand Maitre’ crocus (Crocus vernus ‘Grand Maitre’)
This cultivar of crocus produces bright lavender blooms and is very cold hardy. It is one of the earliest spring bloomers and will multiple over the years and flower every spring. They look best when planted en masse. They will grow 4 to 6 inches and will spread 2 to 3 inches wide.
Grape hyacinth (Muscari armeniacum)
Hyacinths are a big signal that spring is on its way, as are many other bulbs. These clustered flowers hang from sturdy stalks, which can resemble bunches of grapes. They can grow up to 8 inches tall and 6 inches wide.
