Hi, this is Yolanda Vanveen, and in this segment, we're going to talk all about, flowers by season, so you have a beautiful garden area, and your goal is to have color every season of the year, so by adding different plants that bloom at different times, you can create a succession of color, so you always want to start in the early spring, with flowers that bloom in the spring. In the springtime, you can get daffodils to bloom, helibors will bloom real well. You can get these little hardy cyclamen to bloom outside, they're just gorgeous. Tulips are also great to have in your spring garden, but even in the same area, you want to have a succession of color, so you always want to change it out, or add more flowers that bloom in the summer. You want your lilies, your calla lilies, you want all the exotic tigridias, and tritonias, and all the unusual flowers that bloom in the summer, and then you want colors through the fall. You want lots of fall foliage. You want lots of maples, and azaleas, and different types of blooms, that come out in the fall, like the amaryllis belladonnas, and nerines, they all bloom in the fall, colchacum, and then that way, you can have a succession of color, so the goal is to have color every season, in your garden,and so when you're selecting your plants, and your shrubs, and your trees, make sure that you get plants that represent every season of the year, and that way, you will have a succession of color.
