Colorado has a unique climate that can vary from freezing winters to drought-like summers which can make maintaining a beautiful garden difficult without a well thought out plan. Flowers by Season in Colorado Springs is geared towards Colorado Springs’ climate, but we also recommend keeping your local climate in mind when selecting plants.
This guide will help you plant the right types of flowers at the right times which does everything from significantly increasing the curb-appeal of your home to attracting pollinators that fertilize your flowers for you. We’ve also included some ideas to keep your garden colorful in the freezing months without floral blooms.
During the spring months, focus on cold-hearty flowers which stand a better chance of surviving any late freezes. Think Easter colors with beautiful pinks, purples, and whites. Bulbs planted last year should pop back up this time of year as well.
