Spring Flowers

Spring flowers bring the garden to life.  There are bulbs and stalwart bloomers in the Winter months that might be thought of as Spring flowers in a colder climate.  But it takes the Spring warmth and longer days to bring out the best from the flowers.  For our area, the peak blooming moment is sometime in May.  With some time spent removing spent flowers the blooming season easily extends into June.  The June coastal fog often makes a mess of the foliage of many plants, particularly near the coast, making May the most dependable month for blooms.

There is something about natural rain that makes the plants grow so much more productively.  The slow gentle rains of Spring collect nitrogen from the atmosphere.  The warmth of the soil is critical for the bacteria to transform that nitrogen into something that the plants can use.  And the plants use that fertility to such great effect.  I cut so many plants back dramatically each Winter, and they come back with such vigor in the Spring.  Even though I know the story line . . . Spring is here and I am forever astonished by it.

Much of the year foliage is the most important aspect of a garden's design.  Spring flowers trump foliage every time and for at least a few months the flowers reign supreme.  I love to make combinations that overwhelm the senses.  Spring is a time for super-abundant flowers.  As the season progresses the dominant flower color will often change as one plant fades and another comes into bloom, altering the personality of that garden completely.

The above Southern California garden is located in the foothills in a nearly frost free part of the valley.  The design directives for the garden pictured above were:

*  to find colorful flowering plants

* to keep the plants mostly below a height of 3 feet to maintain a view

* to keep the water use at a minimum and the maintenance level reasonable

The plants included in this view of the garden: Erysimum Bowles Mauve, Salvia coahuilensis, Salvia argentea, Salvia Sierra del San Antonio, Salvia Maraschino, Salvia Hot Lips, Calandrinia grandiflora, Convolvulus sabatius, Brachyscome multifida, Hesperaloe parviflora, Cistus sunset, Asteriscus maritimus, Pelargonium sidoides, Calylophus drummondianus, Lobelia laxiflora, Justicia brandegeana Jambalaya, Salvia mexicana Limelight, Geranium Biokovo, Streptosolen jamesonii
