Don’t miss these show stopping Spring flowers! Spring showers bring May flowers right? I cannot wait for those flowers to start blooming. We love decorating our patio and porch with hanging plants full of spring flowers. These are just a few of our favorites and range from pansies, geraniums, petunias and viola. Keep reading, our latest big backyard patio oasis reveal, Mediterranean style is shown below.
Flowers for a patio or deck
Every Mother’s Day, my mom and I head to our local nursery and we pick out our favorite plants. I usually purchase a couple for her as her Mother’s Day gift. We have been doing this for years!
The pansy is a simple and beautiful flower that coordinates perfectly with other flowers.
Decorating with Spring flowers
We have a lilac bush that hasn’t bloomed yet in our backyard near the pool and it has been there for years! A lilac bush is a perennial that comes back year after year.
Flowers that are low maintenance
Wave petunias are one of my mom’s favorite Spring flowering plants. They are considered “no deadheading.” Flower blooms can be a daunting and timely task to remove once they die.
Hanging Spring flowers in containers
Our covered porch sported many of these annuals last year. If you find a hanging plant that you love but do not have a place to hang it, simply remove the hanger and place the plant on a plant stand. This plant below was originally a hanging plant!
Did you know that roses can be kept in a pot for years? I had no idea until last year. You can read all about that here.
Show stopping Spring flowers with color
Snow princess is considered a proven winner, no deadheading and full to part sun. We are all about low maintenance and this is one of our favorites for baskets. The trailing flowers look beautiful hanging over a potted plant.
