Spring

This year we want to bring to you all the collors that Spring can bring from A to Z. We have listed below a variety of plants that will burst your landscaping in a very collorful way.

Begonia

Dragon Wing

Wax Leaf

Summer Annual
Requires: Sun and/or Shade
Season To Plant: Spring & Summer

 

With an abundant display of pink red and white flowers on top of Shiny leaves make this plant an all time favorite for mass planting in our area. The bronze leaf or darker foliage varieties are generally used for full sun locations while the Grean-leafed varieties are more generally used for part sun and part shade areas. Plant Begonias any time after last frost to enjoy a display of color until late fall.

Category: Annual
Prefers: Mostly sun, Full Sun
Size: 12-18" tall,  6-12" Spacing
Season to plant: Spring

 

Sightly fragrant.  Frost tolerant.  Bazillions of brilliant colored blooms. Available for early spring planting.  And when planted in mass groupings there is nothing more show stopping than a bed of Petunia for the spring to make them one of the most widely used annuals here in North Texas.

Get petunias planted early and well established in organically rich well drained fertile soil  before the summer heat  to help them survive our summers. They Prefer the cooler nights and warmer days of spring and early summer, but with a little care they can endure the heat. Giving the plants a well needed trim and pruning when they begin to stretch from the heat, will aid the most.

To trim them it is okay to remove as much as  half the plant, it takes just over a week for them to re-flush and bloom again. Fertilize on a regular basis, and make sure they have adequate water as the summer months turn on the burner.

Marigolds just may be one of the oldest plants we carry at The Flower Ranch and with good reason:  they bloom and bloom and bloom.

Heat tolerant and profuse bloomers that adapt to many types of soil in our area, make these old fashioned flowers a main stay in almost any garden. 

The only thing we normally have to watch out for are spider mites, which are one of the easier pests to take control of. The brilliant Orange, Yellows and fire colors make for a show stopping bed in our summer months, don't forget about the fall, with the color palette these little darlings add to our Autumn Harvest color scheme blending in nicely with fall planting and  last well until the first good freeze.

Moss Rose

Season to plant: Spring & Summer

 

Moss Rose is a heat and sun loving plant in the succulent family. Brightly colored double blooms  open during the day then close up for the night showing off in almost any setting. These newer series stay open longer in the evening and  do not fully shut, leaving some of the color showing even after the sun has gone down.

Moss rose is drought tolerant once established and is great for borders, rock gardens or mass planting in the sun, but do not forget the fertilizer.  Moss rose is a heavy feeder and will reward you with great performance the more it gets fed.

Penta

Prefers: Sun
Size: 12-20" tall,   8-12" Spacing
Season to plant: Spring  & Summer

 

Year after year  Penta's are a  real show stopper and continues to be a mainstay for our summer color.  100% of the  feed back we received  from our clientèle all gave two thumbs up for the Pentas. During the heat of the summer into the wet mild fall of 2009, the Penta survived thrived and showed off with a bang.

 Choose a sunny location; at least half a day to all day full sun with rich well drained soil  for a care free colorful planting. On top of being easy to maintain and heat loving, the Penta is also a mainstay for any butterfly garden.

Impatien

Category: Annual

Requires: Shade

Season to plant:Spring & Summer

Size: 18-30" tall, 8-12" spacing

Sold by: Flats & individual

 

The number one plant choice for our North Texas shaded gardens and patios with a great selection of colors to choose from with single flowers on bushy green plants.

Plant Impatiens in well amended rich soil beds. Fertilize on the easy side, over-fertilization will cause agressive plant growth and delay blooming.

Although Impatiens love the shade, filtered sun and morning sun with afternoon shade are best.

When planted in deep dense shade with no filtered sun at all the plants may not bloom as well for you.

Periwinkle

Category: Annual

Prefers: Sun

Season to plant:Spring & Summer

Size: 12-20" tall, 6-10" spacing

Sold by: Flats & individual

 

One of the most popular summer annuals for our heat and sun. The hotter it gets the happier they are.

Even with the newer generations of periwinkles like Cora, the ones that we sell, we are not totally out of the woods for disease issues and virus'.  Yes they are bred to be more resistant but not immune. With a few cultural practices and planting habits we can help keep them healthy and the beds ready to grow them for years to come.

  • Try not to plant them too early. Periwinkles do not like wet or cool, they love it hot and dry. 

  • Rotate your flowers from year to year, do not plant periwinkles in the same beds each year, especially if there was an issue the prior year.

  • Keep them on the dry side early. Only water enough to get them established, more water is not better.

Hibiscus

Category: Annual

Prefers: Sun

Season to plant:Spring & Summer

Size: 18-24" tall, 15-20" wide

Sold by: Individuals

 

The Floral grade hibiscus are grown using different techniques to keep them more compact with darker glossy foliage. This treatment will last most of the summer. By the end of the season they will be about twice the size of when your bought them to start.

Hibiscus is the most tropical of all the plants that we can use to make believe we have escaped to the islands in our own back yard and enjoy all summer long until the first frost next winter. Fertilize often and liberally through out the summer for peak performance.
