Spring blooms and landscape designsFlowers are everywhere! Spring is here and now is the time to start planting those summer flowers that will bloom all the way through October.  I cannot think of a better way to bring some excitement back to a landscape design than by adding some fresh flowers that will last half of the year.

To make this fun, consider changing it up from year to year. In fact, at Archer Services, we have a pretty wide selection of flowers to choose from. Because we’re located in the Greater Houston area, our city’s big slice of Texas accommodates a host of beautiful Spring blooms. In this article, and in the coming posts, I’ll be discussing various flower species that bloom well in our climate. Furthermore, we’ll share how we like to use these flowers in our landscape designs, and how we maintain them.

Perfect Spring Blooms for Your Houston Landscape

I’ve provided a full list below of all the flowers and plants that will help enhance your landscape.



Blue Daze


Gerber Daisy







Portulaca – Moss Rose

Potato Vine







Though this is a short list of the most popular plants in our area, there are hundreds more to choose from. And for those of you who want something different than all of your neighbors, contact us for a landscape assessment.  I also recommend that you visit your local specialty nursery and have some fun.  Ask the staff for some help in choosing the plants that are just right for your space. However, be sure to take pictures of your yard beforehand to show the areas where you’d like to add enhancements.
