What are your guys favorite flowers that you use in the spring to get peoples attention?
I sell a lot of landscaping jobs from people seeing my clients with gorgeous tulip beds -- but those would have needed to be planted last Fall.
Impatiens can have a big impact -- but not until later in the summer.
Pansies can go in the ground very early -- but only my riches clients are willing to pay my price to put pansies in knowing they will burn out in about 6 - 8 weeks.
I agree with you on the tulips my only problem is my commercial customers is where i wanted to use them and i don't want to put them in around the fall time and then get out bid by someone. That would make there work look good. before i do that i will have to get myself set in for more than 2 years.
I use impatients too they look good enough for not seeing any color for 5 months during winter
Plant pansies in October they sometimes look a little rough in the winter ,but come back strong in the spring.
I like Yellow Pansies underplanted with red tulips
Daffodils are always a great choice, also crocus.
Spring, Red and Yellow Tulips planted together
Summer, Sun Wave series petunias
Fall Chrysantemums and Kale
Sheesh, you guys, haven't you ever taken an art class???
Red with yellow? C'mon say it ain't so!
I guess my spouse is showing through here (she's an art teacher), but learn how to use complimentary colors! Red and green are complimentary, as are yellow and purple, blue and orange, etc.
Complimentary colors will ALWAYS give the best show, if you can pull it off. Get a color wheel, and get to it!
Ok guys I'm just a grass chaser but the wife has been wanting me to put in a tulip bed for some time now. I would do it in a heart beat but what else do you put in a tulip bed? I mean what else do you use to have all year color?
Is your color wheel working?
I didn't see your plant selections for red and green in the spring?
Tulips, daffs, crocus, snowdrops, hyacinths,scilla,pushkinia
