Spring is in full swing and you can already relax in your garden when the weather is nice. It is extra enjoyable with shrubs that already bloom in spring. We have listed our 5 spring favourites for you. Most of these Proven Winners® shrubs remain compact and are suitable for the smaller garden or border.
The Aronia is a plant that has it all: beautiful flowers, (edible) berries and brilliant autumn colours. From April onwards, Aronia is overflowing with white flowers. Choose, for example, the smaller varieties Aronia Revontuli® Mound or Aronia Revontuli® Spreader. They are suitable for almost any type of soil and climate: success guaranteed!
Looking for a spring-flowering shrub that will amaze you every year with its abundant flowering? This beauty flowers from April onwards with elegant little flowers that look a bit like cherry blossom. Deutzia Yuki Cherry Blossom® has beautiful pink flowers and Deutzia Yuki Snowflake® enchants you with its white blooms.
In early spring, Spiraea Double Play® Doozie® sprouts with deep red leaves, which turn to dark green during the season with continuous deep red new growth. In late spring the spectacular red-pink flowers appear and flower non-stop until autumn. This compact all-rounder thus provides double the fun in your garden all season long!
A shrub you will enjoy in spring is Physocarpus Tiny Wine®. From May onwards, numerous mildly scented, pinkish-white flower clusters appear. These contrast beautifully with the beautiful dark purple leaves. An amazing spectacle!
Originating from Japan, the Chaenomeles will surprise you in early spring with masses of flowers on bare wood. Depending on which variety you choose, the flowers are usually bright orange or fiery red. Bring summer into your garden already!
