May is such an exciting month for anybody who digs plants. Garden stores launch into the full spring swing, and it becomes very easy to find plants that both speak to you and work well in the space you have.
With so many options to choose from, the best piece of advice is just to find anything that inspires you and go for it. Give it a try! If you’re worried about killing it, know that the garden center staff and plant tag should equip you with all the info you need to succeed. There are also plenty of easy online resources. If you purchase Bloomin’ Easy plants, you can text the code on the tag to sign up for seasonal care tips and reminders.
The important thing about this time of year is that the weather is beautiful, and the plants you decide to grow will likely bring you lots of happiness 🙂
Of the current thirteen plants in our collection, nine of them will offer beautiful blooms in May. Those are:
1. Tilt-A-Swirl™ Hydrangea
2. Bella Bellissima™ Potentilla
3. Bella Sol™ Potentilla
4. Peach Lemonade Rose
5. Poprocks™ Rainbow Fizz™ Spirea
6. Date Night™ Tuxedo™ Weigela
7. Date Night™ Maroon Swoon™ Weigela

Another plus to gardening in May is the plants feel less stressed when planted in comfortable temperatures versus scorching mid-summer heat. So, even if the plants aren’t blooming yet, it’s a great time of year to get them in the ground for future beauty.
Coming home after a long day to sit on the patio, relax and enjoy the outdoors is the best part of spring and summer. Make that time even more special by planting some great new friends for your outdoor space. Cheers!
Plant, Water, Relax.
