You know how the saying goes: April showers bring May flowers, so let the planting begin! Don’t have a green thumb? No sweat. Here are a list of flowers that thrive in spring and the best ways to take care of them!


This beautiful bloom adds a tropical flair to any landscape! Plant mandevillas in partial shade and well-drained soil. Water the plant regularly but allow the soil to dry between each irrigation.

Calibrachoa Hybrids

Grace your outdoor space with this cheerful flower! Calibrachoa, also known as Million Bells, are not hard to care for. Their simple demands are full exposure to the sun, but they can tolerate partial shade. Water once a week and watch this beauty bloom!

Salvia Splendens

Hummingbirds and butterflies love this gorgeous flower! Salvias prefer full sun and well-drained soil. Space plants 1–3 feet apart, depending on the variety. Water thoroughly.

Soil Tip

Save the eggshells you use for cooking! Flowers tend to lack the proper amount of calcium, which is essential for keeping the cell walls of your plants strong and healthy. Adding eggshells to your soil is a great way to feed your flowers the calcium they need, as long as you grind the eggshells up into a fine powder first.

We hope you add a few of these bloomers to your outdoor living space this spring! For more design needs, call Pamela Hope Designs today at (713) 880-1934.
