Your Season-by-Season Guide to Gardening – Milwaukee Magazine

YES, IT IS THAT TIME ONCE AGAIN. There are many plants that thrive after being planted in the spring, while others thrive in summer or fall. We have a great guide to walk you through the process, and get you ready for the next planting seasons.

Pansies & Violas:

These come in vibrant and distinct colors including  purple, white, yellow, red and orange. Sometimes you see them planted in the likeness of the American flag. They will be fine planted early in spring with some snow on the ground and will last into the fall.

Sweet Alyssum:

The tiny and densely packed white petals on this carpet of flowers will live from early spring until the fall. They can survive frost and love the sun.

Rhododendrons:

The beautiful petals look like frills at the ends of each stalk. They come in white, different shades of pink and purple. They are deciduous and evergreen, meaning they might drop their leaves (which is nothing to worry about) but if you have a specific type in mind, then double check the description when buying them.

Chrysanthemums:

These are a beautiful flowers which are slightly tricky to set up with good conditions for growth. There are many different types of chrysanthemums, but pompons are my favorite. With these you are going to want to make sure they can get a lot of light from the sun, and in a drier location. They like fertile soil, but if it is a little sandy then that is fine.
