Celebrating National Plant a Flower Day in Your Yard

Spring has sprung in Tampa Bay, and with it comes a vibrant celebration for all lovers of floral beauty: National Plant a Flower Day, on March 12! At FloriFence, we know a beautiful fence surrounds a beautiful space, and what better way to enhance your yard than with colorful and fragrant blooms?

But with Florida’s unique climate, choosing the right flowers is essential. Here are our top 5 picks for Florida-friendly flowers that will thrive here in the Tampa Bay area:

  1. Blanketflower (Gaillardia pulchella) This cheerful wildflower boasts bright red, yellow, or orange blooms throughout summer and into fall. Easy to care for and tolerant of drought, blanket flowers are perfect for sunny spots in your yard. Their low-maintenance nature makes them ideal for busy homeowners.
  2. Blue Daze (Evolvulus glomeratus) A charming groundcover, blue daze offers a stunning display of sapphire blue flowers throughout the year. This low-growing perennial thrives in partial shade and well-drained soil, making it perfect for edging flower beds or adding pops of color to walkways within your fenced area.
  3. Firebush (Hamelia patens) This Florida native shrub is a fantastic alternative to Lantana, a popular but invasive species. Firebush attracts butterflies and hummingbirds with its clusters of tubular orange-red flowers that bloom throughout spring, summer, and fall. This low-maintenance beauty tolerates drought and heat, making it a perfect choice for Tampa Bay yards.
  4. Pentas (Pentas lanceolata) Another butterfly favorite, pentas boasts clusters of star-shaped flowers in red, pink, lavender, and white. These ever-blooming perennials thrive in hot and humid conditions, making them a perfect choice for Tampa Bay yards. Plant them in containers or borders for a continuous burst of color throughout the summer.
  5. Canna Lily (Canna indica) With their large, tropical-looking flowers and dramatic foliage, canna lilies add a touch of exotic flair to any Florida garden. Available in a wide range of colors, these vibrant perennials bloom throughout summer and into fall. Plant them near your fence for a stunning focal point in your outdoor space.

No matter your gardening expertise, there’s a perfect flower waiting to bloom in your Tampa Bay yard. By choosing Florida-friendly options and creating a secure space with a FloriFence design, you can celebrate National Plant a Flower Day and enjoy the beauty of nature in your own private paradise. So grab your gardening gloves, pick your favorite blooms, and get ready to watch your fenced-in oasis come alive with color!
