Beautiful Flowers that Grow in April

With the sun shining and the dreary winter behind us, there’s no better time to embrace the glorious spring weather in April than by getting started in the garden. Once you’ve cleared out all the mess left over from the winter, it’s time to add some beautiful colours into your garden with the addition of flowers.

To get your garden bed blooming this spring, here are some suggestions for beautiful flowers that will grow in April.

Matsumoto Aster

If you’re looking for a flower that is available all year round, this is it. The Matsumoto Aster is a favourite among many gardeners since it comes in such a variety of beautiful colours, such as pink, scarlet, yellow, purple and even bi-colours. The spring and summer months are great for these blossoms as they can produce bunches that can grow up to four feet long. These flowers need well-drained soil, and either full sun or partial shade each day.

Anemone

These flowers are one of the most productive spring bloomers, and best of all – they’re easy to grow. You place bulbs in the ground and can expect eye-catching blossoms only three months later.  The dainty petals and stunning colours will be the perfect addition to any spring garden. These flowers can be grown indoors and then taken outside to be planted in the early spring.

African Daisy

Nothing symbolizes spring like daisies. And these daisies that originate from South Africa have unusual petals with stunning arrays of colour. These flowers are a bit more delicate, but are well worth it. They are more favourable to warm, drought-like conditions. So these should only be planted once the threat of frost has completely past.

Lily of the Valley

Lily of the Valley is one of the most fragrant spring and summer blossoms for northern temperate climates. They are beautiful, elegant flowers that product tiny white, bell-shaped flowers along bright green stems. They are easy to grow, low maintenance and are moisture loving plants.

Sweet William

These charming plants are more short-lived, but also well worth it. They produce stunning disk-like blossoms that are decoratively fringed and very fragrant. They also come in a wide range of colours. They love full sun and moist, well-drained soil.

Get your spring garden started with some of these beautiful April blossoms that will bring back that vibrant spring colour into you garden.
