Color You Garden All Year Round

Do you want to color your garden throughout every season? The main secret is to plan wisely and plant flowering plants correctly. Take notes with our guide to achieving an year-round color.


The first secret is to add bulbs to your garden, which will always give you a longer season of color. In August, Crocuses will start blooming. In September, Daffodils will continue. Tulips will bloom from September to November and Alliums in December.

Annual Flowers

It is always simple but effective to choose easy-care annuals to give you color from mid summer through to April such as French Marigolds, Cosmos, Nasturtium, Borage.

Evergreen Plants and Shrubs

Planting some evergreen shrubs such as Rhododendrons and Camelias can take over a small garden and quickly outgrow pots. Meanwhile, don’t forget many evergreen herbs, which take up less space and give flavor to your cooking!

Stems for Winter interest

In winter, some plants may loose their leaves but some Shrubs such as Dogwood, and Willow have brightly colored stems that will look their best. They will create interest in cold winter.

What’s more, besides plants, some painting fences or sheds can also give color to your garden.

Finally, if you are seeking improvements and would like someone to take care of your landscaping needs, then look no further than Everlast Services. We have experienced landscapers too, who will work with you to create your perfect outdoor living space.
