You can bring your landscape in Virginia to life by adding a few spring annual flowers to it. Impatiens are mostly known for their intense colors and will bloom from spring until fall. Begonias produce attractive foliage that comes in different shades of green, bronze, or maroon and vibrant flower colors. Vincas also grow attractive foliage with brightly colored flowers to compliment it. Each requires a unique care routine, but all are low maintenance and will be a great addition to any landscape for the spring!

Annual impatiens can help bring your landscape to life in the spring with a variety of intense flower colors ranging from yellow, orange, white, pink, red, coral, violet, and purple. When preparing them for a landscape, impatiens should be given 8 to 12 inches of space depending on their size. There are many different types of impatiens, so their height can range from 6-30 inches. Impatiens are a low-maintenance annual flower option but will require regular watering, as they grow best in moist soil. They also prefer good drainage and partial shade.

Impatiens will continue to grow and bloom within a landscape from the spring until the first frost of fall when provided with the right conditions.

They can grow upright or have a more trailing habit and produce attractive foliage that comes in shades of green, bronze, brown, and even maroon. The height of begonias ranges from 6 to 24 inches, with flowers that display shades of yellow, orange, white, pink, and red.

Begonias are generally low maintenance once established but will need regular watering. Most prefer shaded areas over direct sunlight and, to keep begonias healthy, the soil should be well-drained. When watered regularly and placed in a shaded area, these spring annual flowers will boost the aesthetics of your landscape with their colorful flowers and attractive foliage!

Annual vincas grow well in garden beds, so they make a great addition to any landscape in the spring. Vincas mostly grow upright, reaching up to 24 inches, and showcase attractive foliage even when not in bloom. Their flowers are large and brightly colored, ranging in shades of yellow, white, pink, red, and purple.

Vincas are low maintenance and can withstand a variety of conditions once they're established. These annual flowers are heat-loving plants that require full sun for about 8 or more hours each day. They're even fairly drought tolerant but will need to be watered regularly early in the day to give the soil time to dry before the day is over since they do better in warmer and drier environments. They prefer well-draining soil and can tolerate various conditions. Regular watering and full sun will keep vincas bright and healthy, allowing these flowers to amplify the appearance of a landscape while in bloom or not.
