5. Pansies -
Even though these are famously considered fall plants in Hampton Roads, pansies bring in color during early spring when other plants are just starting to bud out. These delicate, yet hardy flowers are perfect for adding a pop of color to any garden bed or container before our favorite late spring and summer annuals start rolling in. Their bright hues of purple, yellow, and white will bring cheer to even the gloomiest of days. With their compact size, pansies are perfect for planting in small spaces or as a colorful border around larger plants.
4. Rhododendrons -

These stunning shrubs come in a variety of colors, from deep magenta to soft pink and creamy white. They are perfect for adding height and drama to your garden beds, or as a statement piece in a large container.
3. Bush Daisies -
If you're looking for a plant that will bloom all spring and summer long, look no further than bush daisies.
