In The Garden

In April, the weather in Southwest Missouri is suitable for planting a variety of flowers.

Here are some options you can consider:

  • Marigolds:

Known for their vibrant colors and pest-repellent properties.

  • Purple Coneflowers (Echinacea purpurea):

These hardy flowers are drought tolerant and attract pollinators with their purple daisy-like blooms.

  • Virginia Bluebells (Mertensia virginica):

These produce lovely trumpet shaped blue flowers and are perfect for areas with some shade.

  • Butterfly Weed (Asclepias tuberosa):

This sun-loving plant attracts butterflies with its clusters of orange flowers.

  • Bugleweed (Ajuga reptans ‘Catlin’s Giant’):

A great ground-cover option that provides a carpet of color with its tiny flower spikes.

Remember to choose plants that are well-suited to your garden’s specific conditions, such as soil type and sunlight availability.
