Brilliant Cherry Blossoms for my Spring Garden

Spring Combination Ideas, Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Spring Borders


Flowering cherry trees are typically planted for the majestic yet delicate beauty of their flowers. They make a dramatic statement when in full bloom, with their branches smothered by white or pink cherry blossoms. Underplanting them with spring bulbs contributes to an even more spectacular floral display.

In this garden, the fabulous Prunus 'Shirofugen' (Japanese Flowering Cherry) is underplanted with Camassia leichtlinii 'Blue Danube' (Camass) for a superb late spring spectacle.

You may want to plant other spring-flowering bulbs in the fall, such as tulips and daffodils. They will extend the color display in your landscape and be in full bloom before your flowering cherry begins to leaf out, which means even these sun-lovers do well under the canopy of your deciduous cherry tree. Enjoy!
