Blooming spring island

The Christmas rose "Praecox" is early, because it shows its white flowers as early as November. When the winter is mild, the scented snowball comes to life in January. His pink buds develop into white flower balls that smell wonderful. Now spring can not be far away. A few weeks later, the crocuses and dwarf irises come to light and form a bright carpet of flowers.

Spring Island with Lenz roses

In this spring island, the different lentils radiate particularly beautiful

The dwarf iris "Pauline" shines out in dark purple. It is worth to look more closely at the delicate flowers, because their throat is speckled white. In terms of color, the dwarf iris suits the two lilac roses, which show their flowers at the same time. The left variety, "Rebecca", impresses with its deep red flower color. Queen of the bed is the half-filled Lenzrose "Elly", because it is of impressive beauty: The pink petals are veined dark red and surround the bright yellow stamens. Both Lenzrosen bloom until April. The Heucherella takes its time and flowers only from May to July. For this she ensures the whole winter with her reddish foliage for color in the bed.

New breeding Heucherella

The Staude Heucherella is a fairly new hybrid of foam blossom (Tiarella) and purple bell (Heuchera), which combines the advantages of both: on the one hand attractive flowers and on the other hand decorative, colorful leaves that wither only after the winter. The variety "Quicksilver" bears reddish foliage with a silvery leaf top. A half-shady place with slightly moist soil is ideal.

Crocus meadow in front of a shady bed

Since no one wants to sunbathe or play football in the garden in February, the crocuses can grow on the lawn and spread out to their heart's content. The garden is lined by a shrub hedge, which looks pretty in winter: the holly is evergreen and also dotted with bright red fruit. In addition, the red dogwood "Winter Beauty" grows, whose branches are strikingly yellow to red. As the color is most intense in young shoots, older branches should be cut near the ground every three to five years.

Crocus meadow in front of Schattenbeet

This shady bedding provides many eye-catchers such as the red dogwood, the fruits of holly or the flowers of witch hazel

Another highlight in late winter is the witch hazel, which already bears its yellow flowers in January. Between the bushes the spindle shrub spreads. He shows his white-framed leaves all year round. Even among the perennials, there are some species that keep the foliage in winter. In this bed, it is the lungwort "Trevi Fountain" and the elven flower "Sulfurum", whose leaves are then colored red. Even the sedge makes a good figure with its fine stalks throughout the year. But the bed not only has beautiful leaves to offer: From January, the garden snowdrop and the yellow winterling show their flowers - a perfect backdrop for the crocus meadow.

Lungwort: forest plant with white blots

The lungwort is especially popular because of its dotted leaves, which look pretty even in winter. In addition, it is a noteworthy spring bloomer.Depending on the variety, the flowers are white, pink or purple. The perennial prefers a half-shady, moist location. "Trevi Fountain" blooms in blue violet. The variety has been recognized by perennial experts as one of the best.
