Late Spring Blooms

Bring blooms to your garden with these late spring-blooming Trees, Shurbs and Perennials.

Trees

Tulip Trees are one of the largest native trees in North America. It is a member of the magnolia family and has distinct tulip-shaped flowers. The showy, goblet-shaped, orange-yellow-green flowers appear in late spring after the leaves; the cone-like seed clusters sit upright on the branches.

Horse Chestnut is a large tree known for showy flowers in May. The clusters of white flowers may be 6 inches tall or more. Urban tolerant and extremely showy. Highly encourage use on both commercial and residential properties.

SHRUBS

Dwarf Korean Lilac is a shrub spreading lilac with reddish purple buds that open to fragrant, pale lilac flowers. Blooms profusely in mid-season, typically mid-May, and first flowers at an early age.

Lilac is the color of the year and Lilac is the plant of the year.

 

Flowering quince are one of the first shrubs to bloom in early spring, branches loaded with blooms before they leaf out. They’re also hardy, tough, long-lasting and super easy to grow. Butterflies and hummingbirds savor these flowers.

wiegela

Weigela, originally from China, have long been favorites in American yards and gardens. The several kinds of this showy flowering shrub all produce copious blooms in the late spring or early summer and are virtually pest free. Spectacular while in bloom, the rest of the season they are ordinary, blending into the green landscape, and serving as backdrops for other plants.

PERENNIALS

Salvia plants are heat / drought tolerant and attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds…a true blue garden winner. As an added bonus, the fragrant foliage of salvia is distasteful to rabbits and deer.

peony

PEONY plants offer big, fluffy, fragrant flowers in a wide range of colors, forms and sizes. These resilient, long-lived (some to 100 years) perennial bushes have a history of popularity as a garden plant. Hardy for commercial settings.

Oriental Poppies, highlight the garden from late spring to early summer. These are truly eye-catching perennials with their huge, silky-satin flowers in shades of red, orange, white or pink.
