Living in a city like Charlotte, blooming plants can provide year round interest to your landscape. Morgan Landscape Group, who works to provide continuous color throughout the seasons for its clients, says color is key to making your yard an inviting environment and a stunning statement in the neighborhood. Color distinguishes your landscape from every other home on the block.
With proper planting and placement in April and May, colors will bloom endlessly throughout the springtime. Abundant pops of pink color from Okame Cherry trees sprinkled throughout city streets and landscapes around town begin the show. Later, add color interest with white-blooming Yoshino cherry trees, dogwood trees, and Eastern Redbuds.
Masses of azaleas planted throughout sections of your yard create a magnificent show of vibrant color as well. Spring-blooming hydrangeas offer impressive flower balls, while daffodil and tulip bulbs bursting through the foliage of other plants add punch.
“Add even more intense bursts of color and enliven outdoor spaces with seasonal annuals at entryways and in window boxes and planters on patios and porches,” says Mark Morgan of Morgan Landscape Group. They suggest considering impatiens, begonias, etunias, coleus, coneflowers, salvia, zinnia, and dahlias.
Spring is the season of excitement when it comes to gardening and landscaping, so there’s no better time than now to invest in colorful perennials and annuals that will repay you for your time and money with a healthy return of bountiful color.
When spring gives way to the unbearable heat of summer, you can still enjoy the reds and pinks of Knock Out® roses and Crape Myrtles in full vibrant bloom while hanging out around the backyard pool.
Imagine looking out over your property to a scene of butterflies and hummingbirds fluttering around purple, pink or red Butterfly Bushes.
During the fall and winter months, the cold weather makes it hard to get excited about being outside. However, blooming Camellia Japonica feels at home during the colder season and is beautiful planted within eyesight of a glowing warm fire pit or outdoor fireplace. A mass of Lenten rose covering the ground throughout a large bedded area is the perfect splash of softness and color in an otherwise bleak and bare environment. As winter comes to an end, the cycle begins again with daffodil bulbs popping up around the yard.
Whatever the season, Charlotte’s climate continually offers the opportunity to landscape your property with year round interest and color.
