Cool weather is just what pansy prefers. It's an annual that gardeners flock to because it's one of the best flowers to plant in spring for early-season containers and window boxes, relishing the variety in petal color as much as the cheery uplifted blooms.
Name: Viola x wittrockiana
Growing conditions: Sun or part shade and moist, well-drained soil
Size: To 10 inches tall and 12 inches wide
- Double Rock Rose
Rock rose makes spring-flower lovers wait until late in the season for blooms, but that extra dose of patience is worth it. Double varieties such as this one are one of the best flowers to plant in spring, with a profusion of petals on low-growing shrubs in both spring and early summer.
Name: Helianthemum 'Annabel'
Growing conditions: Full sun and well-drained soil
Size: To 1 foot tall and 2 feet wide
Create some fireworks in your fall garden with a generous helping of chrysanthemums. These autumn bloomers work just as well in containers as they do in the border. Flowers are available in red, orange, purple, white, and yellow, and vary in size from cute buttonlike blooms to softball-size giants. Chrysanthemums will come back every year, but they have a tendency to die out after a few seasons. That’s why it’s a good idea to plant new chrysanthemums every year.
