Early spring flowers can bring the color and warmth of spring to your garden weeks ahead of schedule. Not only do early spring blooming flowers add beauty, they can be helpful in attracting bees and other pollinators to your yard early in the season, which encourages them to make your garden a regular place to visit for them.
In order to prepare for early spring gardening, dedicated green thumbs should begin to plan in the cold months of mid-winter. One must be careful regarding what plants he or she does decide to include in an early spring garden, however, as many plants cannot survive the initial, still-chilly spring months.
Cineraria produces blooms of brilliant blue with white ring. Mounded. Best grown in a cool season. Good for indoor decor at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Perennials in their native climates, they are used as annuals in most American gardens. Provide half to full shade during the growing season when grown outdoors.
