It's important to pick flowers that bloom early in the season, as well as plants that are ideal for the growth circumstances surrounding your window while thinking about spring window box ideas. If your window receives a lot of afternoon sun, for example, consider plants that thrive in bright light. In your USDA hardiness growing zone, pay attention to the final likelihood of frost and freezing temperatures.
Here are some spring window box ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
1. Combo of Calla Lilies
Spring has come with a beautiful message of yellow, white, purple, and green. The blooms in this window box contrast well with the black shutters. Yellow calla lilies adorn the rear of the box, while fluffy yellow and white hydrangeas cover the majority of the space. Tiny white bacopa blooms are strewn throughout the sides and front. The plants' various heights are aesthetically pleasing and serve to fill out the box. Late April is the best time for these plants to blossom, and they need equally wet soil.
2. Colors that pop
It doesn't have to be all pastels in the springtime. Stunning rich hues are used in many lovely flower box designs. Variegated coleus, million bells (a relative of petunias with smaller blooms), vinca, and asparagus fern make up this beautiful window box. Both the million bells and the vinca have extended blooming seasons, frequently lasting from spring until frost in the autumn. As a result, this design should be appealing throughout the growing season. This plant combination should be shaded from the hot afternoon sun in a window box.
3. Daffodils in full bloom
One advantage of planting just one kind of bulb in your window box, such as daffodils, is that they all bloom at the same time, creating a spectacular display. Daffodils bloom in early spring and are quite simple to cultivate in pots. Daffodil roots prefer to spread downward and detest damp soil, so choose a flower box that is quite deep and has adequate drainage.
4. Petunia Party
This window box is overflowing with petunias in vibrant purples, pinks, and yellows. Single and double blooms, smooth and ruffled petals, and striped, veined, and plain hues are all available in the petunia genus. Petunias with mounding or cascade growth patterns, as well as scent, are available. As a result, you may personalize your box to your liking. To promote more flowering, deadhead the blooms.
5. Simplicity in Green and White
In this window box, white-flowered plants such as petunias, begonias, Angelonia Angustifolia "Archangel White," and sweet alyssum are grouped symmetrically. They stand out against the black shutters and white-painted brick home with white wood trim while remaining gentle and natural. Angelina stonecrop is the bright chartreuse foliage. A spring-blooming bulb, most likely Ornithogalum, or Star of Bethlehem, is waiting to blossom in the middle. Make sure the soil drainage in a flower box like this is sufficient.
6. Plenty in a Box
This window box welcomes spring with just about everything blossoming that would fit in the box, according to the "more is more" principle. Pansies, geraniums, and snapdragons are among the plants included. If you don't already have foundation plants beneath your window, a window box like this is ideal. That way, the box's quantity of plants won't seem too crowded. The pansies and snapdragons will cease flowering in the summer heat, but they may blossom again in the autumn, but the geraniums will bloom all season. As a result, it may be worthwhile to leave all of the plants in situ for the growing season.
7. Purple Pops in White
Spilling white bacopa is coupled with powdery miller, daisy-like fleabane, and purple million bells in this window box concept. The result is a broad, spreading box that will fill up as the spring advances. The color scheme of purple and white keeps things basic yet still spring-like. It looks really good against a medium blue home. Full sun is preferable for these plants, so make sure your box has enough of it.
8. Succulents for Spring
Succulents planted in a window box in the autumn will continue to thrive through the winter. They will be at their finest by early spring, with some kinds producing blooms. Kalanchoe (feeling plant), pink echeveria, crassula, and pencil cactus are among the succulents in this package. Because these succulents may be cultivated as houseplants, you can leave your window box inside until the weather warms up.
9. Pretty in Pink
There are many different types of hydrangeas to pick from. And these fluffy bright pink ones are the ideal flash of brightness to usher in the new season. For a lovely window box effect, combine hydrangeas with some plain green foliage plants. Because many hydrangeas bloom in the summer, choose a kind that blooms in the spring. In addition, if you live in a cold location, keep an eye out for an exceptionally late spring frost, which may damage flower buds. Bring your window box inside for the night if frost is expected, or cover it with a sheet.
10. Tier of Tulips
Tulips are a classic example of a spring flower. Botanical Blitz strategically placed these bright red tulips in the back of a window box, with dark purple heliotropes growing in the front. What's fantastic about this combo is that you can easily change out the tulips for summer-blooming flowers after they've finished blooming. Heliotropes may be left in situ since they bloom till frost. Heliotropes will produce more blooms if they are deadheaded.
