Flowers For Spring
After a long, cold winter, you may be eagerly awaiting the first signs of Spring. Springtime automatically brings to mind the flowers. Choosing the best flowers for Spring is difficult, and this can often be confusing. One of the most effective ways to ensure spring-blooming each year is to plant bulbs in the fall in the middle of winter. There are certainly flowering plants that you can buy from your local nursery. However, you will want to make sure that any chance of frosty weather has passed before planting, and that in many parts of the country, the end of the season and the end of Spring are not enough. You always have the option of buying bulbs that are grown in pots in winter and stored in most garden centers starting at the end of winter. Here are a few choices of flowering plants that are suitable for planting and blooming in early Spring:

Spring snowflake, or leucojum vernum, gives you bell-shaped flowers that fall from the green part of the plant. It is six to twelve inches tall and has a white color and small green spots on the petals. You can plant them in clumps and watch the flowers from late February to early March. Like any other springtime bulb, they are planted in the autumn. However, if you buy potted bulbs that have already started growing, you can plant them in the middle of winter.


Netted Iris or  iris reticulate, is a delicate aroma and is usually purple in color. However, you can find pale blue and white iris in many areas. Irisus is one of the earliest flowering plants, and you can expect a beautiful flower show in early March.
