    What does everybody use for seasonal color for Spring and Summer? It's too late for bulbs. What other suggestions? Thanks alot...

    A mix of annuals and perennials, mostly annuals for their nonstop color. A little too early for annuals, though.

    I prefer to focus more on the evergreen shrubs for season color. Bunches of annuals takes away from the rest of the landscape, people tend to just look at them and forget about the rest of the shrubs and trees.

    Check with your supplier. It is best to get a variety of plants that start with early color, when the first series is done blooming you want the next series of plants to have already started blooming, and so on until late Fall.
