Spring is a beautiful time to plant flowers in your garden, and I’ve rounded up some of my favorite ones that are great for any garden. Whether you have a small backyard or an entire field of land, there’s something in this list for everyone. So grab your gardening gloves and get ready to plant!
Daffodils are a classic spring flower that you can easily grow in your garden, pot, or window box. They’re also great for adding color to hanging baskets and planters. Daffodils bloom in late winter and early spring, making them an ideal choice to plant now!
Daffodil bulbs work best when planted about six inches deep into moist soil that drains well. If possible, choose an area of the garden where daffodils have grown successfully before so that you know what type of soil they prefer. To make sure your bulbs get the proper amount of sunlight they need during their growing season (which is approximately three months), make sure to place them in a sunny spot once they’re planted outside – even if this means moving some surrounding plants around as needed!
Also known as Rosa mundi, the Lenten rose is a perennial and blooms in the spring. It has a long bloom time, so you’ll be able to enjoy it for months at a time. You can plant your lenten rose in your garden or flower bed, or even in a container if you’d like to keep it on your patio or deck.
This beautiful flower grows best in full sun, but it can also tolerate partial shade and any type of soil you might have available. This means that no matter where you live or what conditions are present at your home, there’s probably an area where this lovely flower would thrive!
Dandelions are a perennial flower. They come up every year after they’ve been established in the soil, so they’re not seasonal like most other flowers. In fact, they’re considered weeds because they can spread quickly and grow anywhere there is grass or bare soil. They are also known to indicate good soil quality, as well as being a sign of spring and summer when you see them growing everywhere!
Grape hyacinth is a beautiful spring flower that makes a nice addition to any garden. It’s easy to grow and a good choice for beginners, so it’s an excellent plant to start with if you’re just getting into gardening.
Grape hyacinth is also called Dutch hyacinth because it originated in the Netherlands in 1816 and was named after the Greek god of wine, Dionysus (hence “grape). It’s a perennial bulb that grows easily from seeds or bulbs, which can be planted directly into your garden.
Pansies (Viola tricolor)
Pansy flowers are bright, cheerful and easy to grow. They’re also a good choice for beginners because they’re hardy and adaptable. In fact, pansies are some of the most popular spring-flowering bulbs in North America, with many different varieties available in blue, purple, yellow and white hues. The best part? Pansies will bloom again after you cut them—and they’re also great for making potted arrangements!
Pansies thrive in full sun or partial shade; they’ll even grow well if your garden gets too much shade! A few other tips: choose a variety that’s suited to your climate zone (for instance, alba varieties work well if you live in a cooler area). If possible plant them near taller plants so they get plenty of protection from wind gusts.
Tulips are a spring garden staple. They’re pretty and easy to grow, making them a great choice for the home gardener. Tulips come in a wide variety of colors, so there’s something for everyone—whether you like pastels or bold hues, there’s bound to be something that speaks to your aesthetic sensibilities. It’s also important to note that tulips are one of the easiest flowers to grow; they don’t require much care and can thrive even in small spaces such as window boxes!
Tulips are one of my favorite flowers because they add so much color and beauty to my yard without requiring too much work on my part (I’m not exactly great at gardening). It’s just another reason why I love these beautiful blooms!
Primrose is a beautiful flower that can be planted in your garden in the spring. Primrose is a perennial flower, meaning it will come back year after year. Primrose is also a low maintenance flower, so you don’t have to worry about water or fertilizing!
You can plant this colorful and fragrant little plant anywhere you want to add some color to your garden, such as next to your front door or in a sunny spot near where you would like to grow tomatoes one day. It makes a great addition to an existing garden bed as well!

The bleeding heart (Dicentra spectabilis) is a perennial that has a flowering period in late spring. Native to Europe and Asia, this plant can grow to a height of 12-18 inches and prefers full sun or partial shade. It can also grow in moist soil as long as it drains well. This plant does well in cold climates, but it grows best when the temperatures are between 50 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Bleeding hearts have been known to successfully grow indoors for several years before being transplanted outdoors once they’ve reached maturity.
Bleeding hearts are easy to care for if you follow these simple steps:
Sweet woodruff is a fragrant, perennial ground cover that is also known as lance-leaved woodruff. This plant is native to Europe and Asia, but it grows well in areas with cool summers and mild winters. Sweet woodruff has narrow leaves that grow 6 to 8 inches long and have serrated edges. The flowers of sweet woodruff are white or pale pink, borne on spikes above the foliage in spring or early summer.
Sweet woodruff prefers partial shade, but it can tolerate full sun if there’s plenty of moisture and humidity around it. It’s easy to care for; all you need to do is cut back any dead leaves after they fall off during winter months so your plant has room to spread out again next year!
