Greetings garden friends! The days we Western gardeners look forward to all year-long are upon us! Longer days, a few Spring showers (yay!!) and the the first sweet sounds of birdsong can only mean one thing ... SPRING is near!!

In honor of this magical gardening time of year – so full of promise and potential! – we've put together an inspirational and uplifting SPRING SLIDESHOW to get you in the gardening mood. Cruise ahead of the gardening curve with the most luscious plant combos and color schemes for the new season!

Ok, so recap: RIGHT NOW is the perfect time for us temperate weather folks to be planting for a bloomiferous Spring garden. Do it now and you'll be blooming your heart out while your jealous neighbors are still in their fuzzy slippers!

Annie's Favorite Must Have Spring Bloomers and
Combos to make your garden POP!
Corydalis flexuosa 'Porcelain Blue' Nicotiana 'Lime Green' and Agrostemma 'Milas'
Corydalis flexuosa 'Porcelain Blue'
Robins-egg blue flowers with a Narcissus-like scent and lacy foliage are the calling cards of this surprisingly hardy Corydalis (USDA zone 5!). Loved by bees and hummers, flowers appear in Spring and it re-blooms prolifically in Fall. 
Old-fashioned cottage garden charm incarnate! Pair Nicotiana alata 'Lime Green' with Agrostemma 'Milas' for a sweet Spring bloom-a-thon and you will be SO glad you did! 'Milas' self-sows reliably and 'Lime Green' can be cut back for months of repeat bloom! Cut flowers galore!
Achillea millefolium 'Cameo'
Achillea millefolium 'Cameo'
Lovely and oh so easy to grow! This peachy-pink “yarrow” provides a touch of delicate beauty despite being tough-as-nails! Handles heat drought and poor soils – including clay – with ease! Deer and rabbit resistant! Hardy USDA zone 3!
The epitome of free and easy, Verbascum hybrid ‘Southern Charm’ is tough and gorgeous at the same time! Paired sumptuously with Papaver 'Lauren's Grape', Scabiosa 'Fama Blue' and Lathyrus odoratus 'Cupani' in the background and you'll get big, long-term bang for your buck!
Papaver sp. ‘Greek’ and Silene dioica Gilia tricolor “Bird's Eyes” and Eschscholzia californica ‘Alba’
Quick to grow and bloom plant Papaver sp. ‘Greek’ and Silene dioica for a long-lasting explosion of color! Wildflowery Greek poppy produces a bounty of true red blooms on a 20" x 20" form and self-sows for seasons to come. Perennial, goof-proof and easy-going Silene will keep blooming till Fall if deadheaded. Two of our easiest and most rewarding CA native wildflowers, Gilia tricolor “Bird's Eyes” and Eschscholzia californica ‘Alba’ positively sing when paired AND bloom at the same time! Extremely floriferous, both boast delicate, ferny foliage and self-sow, so you may get a repeat performance! Bees adore both!
