There are numerous flowers that bloom throughout the
spring and during the month of May. Choosing which ones to buy and plant can be
a difficult choice. May is a thriving blooming season for most regions, since
it is either the beginning of summer or end of spring.
Also referred to narcissus, daffodils are a
popular May flower. Daffodils “are hardy, pest free, disease free,
naturalize well, live for years with no work, multiply if left alone, and come
in a wide variety of flower colors, heights, sizes and flower shapes.
Tulips have long been the most celebrated
spring flower. Standing tall and straight, they come in an extensive variety of
colors and heights. Their showy blooms and more than 100 species make them an
excellent spring flower for any garden.
As the most famed flower in the world, roses
make a striking impression in any garden. Their flowers come in many
colors besides the staple red. A metaphor for love and beauty, the rose is
commonly used as a cut flower for special occasions and moments, though their
blooms begin to decorate gardens throughout the month of May.
Roses require an abundance of both water and
sunlight. Good soil is also necessary for planting rose bushes.
Remember to trim dead roots before planting the bush in fertilized soil.
Zinnias have large blooms and come in a
variety of colors. Easy to grow, zinnias bloom starting in late spring and last
until the first frost. This makes them an ideal candidate for summer gardens,
since their color and beauty will last throughout the season rather than just a
few short weeks. Common bloom colors include white, orange, yellow, red, rose,
pink, purple and lilac.
Zinnias are easy to grow from seed. Plant
them after the danger of frost has passed. As an annual flower, zinnias will
die after frost befalls them, so be careful not to plant too early.
These flowers produce large, fragrant blooms
in late spring in shades of white, red or yellow. Set and plant peonies during
the fall for a spring bloom. Make sure the flowers receive adequate water, and
the peonies will come back for years to come.
Additional May blooming flowers include the
mountain laurel, giant aliums, clematis and hyacinth. Many other flowers also
bloom during this time. Check the hardiness zones for each flower before
planting to ensure blooms will correlate with the month of May.
