Natural Colors for Spring & Summer

Warm weather calls for nature’s most exquisite hues—energetic yellows to distinct whites—to enliven your garden. As many plants are only available during specific windows of the year, you must take advantage of the spring and summer’s seasonal stars with their beautiful blooms, astonishing foliage, and unique bark. As winter waves its last goodbyes, turn to the trusted garden landscaping company Northern Virginia Landscaping to ensure you don’t miss out on this year’s seasonal beauties.


Below, we discuss colorful plants that are well-suited for spring and summer gardening:


Those eager to hit the ground running will find that spring’s early bloomers can unfurl soon after the frost subsides. Gardening needs vary from plant to plant; while you can plant many of the following blooms during spring, some must be grounded in advance.
