One of the wonderful things about living in Florida is our weather. The warm, balmy weather we get here on the Treasure Coast makes the perfect setting for vibrant, lush flowers. No matter what time of the year, we can have something that’s blooming and giving us a riot of beautiful colors.
In the Northeast, we used to watch for the first buds of spring plants like Daffodils, Iris and Peonies, to stick their little tops up out of the soil. We would get so excited to see them come up out of the ground and would pray the weather would stay warm enough so it wouldn’t hurt our baby spring flowers. The yellow Daffodils always looked so cheerful after a long winter.
In Florida, they can still be your spring flower of choice, but they can probably be grown most of the year. I love planting fragrant flowers and plants close to my front door and back patio. There’s nothing better than sitting outside and the scent of Lavender, Jasmine and Gardenia coming across on a summer breeze.
Plants like Amaryllis, Saucer magnolia and Calendula, sweet Alyssum and winter Jasmine are good winter plants that prefer the cooler temperatures we get in January and February. If you take proper care of your Amaryllis bulbs they will give you beautiful flowers and people love getting them as gifts.
Whatever your favorite blooms are, we can find a way to integrate them into your landscape design. Just give us a call and we will get you started.
