The Totally Boise team ranges from novice plant parents and seasoned plant owners; Franz Witte has been able to help us find everything we need. With spring in bloom, Franz Witte’s in-house horticulture expert – Riley Rehberg – shared five must-have plants that are not only affordable but easy to care for plants you need to purchase this spring! They are the perfect addition to your landscaping to give it that fresh, updated look without breaking the bank.
Five Must-Have Spring 2022 Plants
1. Magnolia 'Ann'
This is a multi-trunk stunner with large, showy pink blooms in the spring. Ann Magnolia is a smaller landscape tree which makes it a good option for small yards as it puts off lovely shade in the summer.
2. Lilac 'Sensation'
This award-winning classic shrub will fill the yard with a sweet fragrance. Sensation blooms are unique because they are bicolor (purple florets with white edges), and they adorn the entire shrub in late spring.
3. 'Whipcord' Western Red Cedar
Talk about form and texture! This little evergreen is a winner in our book because of its mounded habit, unique texture, and small stature—it's bound to spruce up any spot. (Note: Whipcord performs better in our climate when protected from afternoon sun exposure.)
4. 'Fine Line' Buckthorn
Space saver, low maintenance, privacy screen, ornamental value, and texture…need we say more? This deciduous shrub screams winner in our book.
5. Helleborus x ‘Brandywine’
Hellebores are trademark spring bloomers, and you're not going to want to miss out on this Brandywine mix. Shades of dark red, pink, and apricot can all be found on one perennial with a diversity of single and double blooms.
