Nurseries and online catalogs sell them. The plants are ready for sale after they grow for a year and have their growth trimmed to about an inch above the crown. They arrive ready for transplanting outdoors with the soil removed from the roots.

To begin the list of spring flowers, daylilies grow in many climates, and numerous hybrids are available in a variety of colors. Secondly, vine plants that quickly climb up trellises and gazebos. They include numerous species in colors such as white, pink, blue, red and purple. Clematis bloom shapes vary by species. Some resemble tulips, while others are bell shaped, star shaped or like tiny lanterns.

They adapt easily to a wide variety of soil conditions and include short varieties that grow no more than a few feet tall to tall plants that reach up to 8 feet and taller. For annuals that provide numerous color choices, select zinnias to plant in April for summer flowers.
