Here are some great ideas for your spring planting:

Bulbs: Great early color. Coordinate bloom times and colors for longer life. Remember that tulips lose vibrancy each year while old standards like daffodils and hyacinth get better with age.

Creeping Phlox: Early spring bloomer. Carpets of white, lavender, pink and rose color

Forsythia: Winter or spring?  Signals the change and is always exciting

Bleeding Heart: Try the fringed variety for longer plant life and bloom

Dianthus: Pink, rose, white. Very fragrant

Dwarf Iris: Dwarf yellow, purple or blue blooms

Judd Viburnum: Deciduous shrub, wonderfully fragrant white blooms. Koreanspice and Burkwood
viburnums are also very fragrant and a bit larger.

Redbud: Often overlooked.  Pink blossoms on a tree with lots of character and informality.

Happy spring planting!
