Increase Curb (and Indoor) Appeal With These Springtime Flowers

by Todd & Lisa McLain 04/02/2024

Make the most of plants that bloom in the spring. Use these 5 best flowers to boost your curb appeal (or your indoor space): 


Pansies are always an excellent choice for landscaping and growing in pots because of how hardy they are. Available in an entire rainbow of colors, pansies will last well into the hottest parts of summer and can even tolerate frosty mornings. Since pansies are annuals, however, you will need to re-plant them every year to keep the bright colors going strong.


Sweet Alyssum

Sweet Alyssum is another annual that lasts a long time—usually until the first hard freeze. It’s a low-growing and bushy plant with tiny, delicate blooms. The most common variety has white flowers, but it also comes in shades of purple and pink. It’s great for adding volume to flower beds or for growing in pots and planters.



Primroses are low-maintenance and cheerful-looking perennials. Most varieties can stay blooming and survive well into the winter, but it’s a good idea to check what type of primrose will work best for your region. They come in many colors including white, yellow, pink and deep purple. The flowers bloom in small clusters which make them perfect for small pots, planters or as border plants in larger flower beds.



Rhododendron is a great option for a plant that looks beautiful even when not in bloom. When it blooms in the spring it can be a variety of colors like white, peach, pink. Rhododendron can grow quite large and will require some occasional pruning so it doesn’t take over. Here in Colorado, you'll need to stick to planting these in pots and bringing them inside during the cold winter. However, you definitely get your money’s worth with this eye-catching plant. 



Daffodils are classic springtime flowers that typically pop up right at the end of winter. They range anywhere from bright yellow to white and there are several size choices. Overall, these flowers are very hardy and reliable. Once planted they will come back right on schedule every year and add warmth to your yard.


Consider Climate

Though these suggested varieties of flowers are a mix of perennial and annual you should always check to see what will grow most successfully in your area. We have several different micro-climates throughout the Pikes Peak region!  Consult the USDA’s plant hardiness zone map to see what varieties will thrive and which might not survive. Also, for bulbs like daffodils, plan ahead. You will need to plant these in the fall in order for them to be ready to bloom by springtime. You will need to re-plant annuals like pansies and alyssum every year at the right time. For the best curb appeal, mark your calendars and make sure your flowers are ready to shine.
