Transition to Spring-Summer Annuals and Perennials

As gardens move toward spring's bountiful bloom, it's time to replace declining fall and winter blooming annuals with their spring and summer counterparts. Look in nurseries for six packs or 4-inch pots of colorful coleus, cosmos, verbena, marigolds, petunias, vinca, celosia, and other favorite annuals. Popular heat-loving perennials also can be planted now, including lavenders, kangaroo paws, sages, pincushion flowers (Scabiosa), asters, penstemons, heliotropes, artemisia and African daisies.
