Planting season for flowers here

Hi, I am interested in adding some flowers to my yard. What is the best time to begin in the spring?

Anne's Response:

The type plant you are putting in the ground determines what time of year it is planted. Cool season plants like pansies, snapdragons etc, can be planted in January and February. Roses can be planted in February and March. Flowering shrubs are best planted in the fall - late September and October. Tulips and daffodils are planted in the fall.

Petunias, marigolds, zinnias and similare annuals are planted after the danger of frost in April.
