Spring is (finally) here! Ready to start gardening? We are, too. But there are many plants you should wait to plant until our frost-freeze date in Mid-April (this is for Northwest Arkansas).
So what plants can you go ahead and start planting? These perennial plants come back from year to year and can take a few light frosts. They also bloom in early Spring!
This perennial is one of our favorite trailing plants. It produces a bed of small, colorful flowers that bloom in early Spring. Place them in full to part sun and let them grow over rocks or trail over borders.
Bleeding hearts look like tiny little trinkets hanging from each stem. These unique blooms are a treat to see emerge every early Spring. They prefer more shady areas.
Columbine does best in part to full sun. These bell-shaped blooms are such a unique face to see in Spring. Add to your landscape if you want a natural, “wild” look.
There is both perennial and annual dianthus. Perennial dianthus comes back from year to year. It’s foliage and blooms add vibrant colors and textures to any garden.
So what are you waiting for? Dust off those gloves and let’s get planting!
