Seasonal Flowers in North Texas

The start of spring brings about flowers -- and lots of them.

Gardening is a year-round hobby in Texas, and in order to keep your garden and lawn flourishing, you have to learn to plant seasonally.

Lawns and landscaping in North Texas offer one of the best scenery templates for gardening. The colors from the many different types of flowers create exquisite beauty to help make your home picturesque. 
 

Hello Spring

March is the hailing of spring. You can begin to say goodbye to those winter weather flowers like cornflowers and dianthuses.

And instead, say hello to petunias, pansies, snapdragons, and calendulas, which are cooler spring season annual flowers that can be planted at the beginning of the month. This is the perfect time to plant these flowers, as the cold snaps are finally gone and the weather is just cool enough for them to start blooming.

You will start to see vines, shrubs and trees being stocked locally, and  North Texas Lawns has the landscaping services to help you install these. These types of plants grow well at the start of spring as the weather provides a prime growing window for blooming. 
 

Jumping into Summer

The months of April and May invite even warmer weather as spring starts to give way to summer. While some parts of Texas just get too hot for flowers to survive, North Texas weather is optimal for this type of planting. Full-sun annuals like moss rose, trailing lantanas, pentas, Dalhberg daisies and marigolds thrive during this season. 

During this planting time, you'll also want to make sure that your lawns are nicely fertilized in order to promote seasonal flower plant growth. All-nitrogen and high-nitrogen soils are a great option for this fertilizing time. 

Moving from spring into full-on summer heat can be tricky when dealing with seasonal flowers, but thankfully there are certain flowers that flourish in our heat. Purslane, copper plant, firebrush, tropical hibiscus and Gold Star Esperanza are heat-tolerant annuals that won't be affected by the burning fire of the sun. 

To add in some more color to your lawn, plant periwinkle. These flowerbeds can also be fully exposed to the sun and come in a variety of different colors such as pink, rose and white. Texas Gold Columbine is also a great heat thriving plant which will add a bright pop of yellow to your lawn, making it come to life in a new way.
 

Autumn Days

Toward the end of summer and into the beginning of fall, brighter flowers make room for wildflowers. Daffodils, narcissus and jonquils are ideal for this season. They can survive amongst the fall vegetables that would take over your planting area while providing a nice floral view in contrast to the changing leaf colors. 

You deserve to have a lawn that is flourishing, thriving and full of color all year round. Let us know how North Texas Lawns can help you make this happen.
