Time To Add Spring Color To Your Yard

Aug 5, 2022

It’s hard to believe, but autumn is right around the corner. 

So why are we talking about spring color? Well, this is a great time to start planning your fall planting for spring blooms! Bulbs usually start hitting the stores in late August into September and October. The best time to plant is before the first frost, when nighttime temperatures are above 40 but below 60.

Here are some of our favorite, colorful bulbs planted in fall for fabulous spring blooms!

  • Tulips – there are so many beautiful varieties of tulips and they really respond well to our climate.

  • Daffodils/Narcissus – not only are these a crowd pleaser, they also have a bonus of being deer resistant, if you live in an area with deer activity.

  • Crocus – these are one of the first bulbs to pop up every spring. Perfect for beating the grey days of winter!

  • Giant Snowdrops – these put on quite a show and add a nice dimension to your flower beds.

  • Allium – an ornamental part of the onion family, these produce stunning giant blooms that last a long time.

  • Iris – another showstopper that grow beautifully in our climate.
