Flowers have a way of really bringing the outside of your home to life. Whether you choose to plant flowers or to add a few well-placed potted flowers, now is the time to pick your favorites!

Here are a few flowers you might consider planting this season:


Pansies are annuals that gardeners love to plant in spring. They work great in window boxes!


Give your yard an instant air freshener! Lilacs have one of the sweetest fragrances. Enjoy the beautiful, cottage-like feel it provides! It's a great flower to plant in the spring, and it comes in many varieties.

Grand Maitre Crocuses

Crocuses are one of the best flowers to plant in spring. With their beautiful, vibrant colors, they can help transform your yard. You'll have a variety of options to choose from with crocuses, as well.


Nothing says spring like daffodils! If you have deer that come through your yard, this might be the flower for you, as deer don't find them as appetizing as other plants.

If you can't quite plant an entire garden, you are in luck. Kansas City has its own beautiful not-so-secret gardens!
