The Best Flowers for Great Curb Appeal

by Tammy Emineth on Apr 5, 2021

Right now is planting season and the beginning of yard work season. One of the biggest factors in quick and successful home sales is curb appeal. And one of the largest factors of curb appeal is the condition of your landscaping. A very budget friendly way to quickly add visual interest and appeal to your yard is with some colorful flowers in addition to a nicely trimmed lawn and trees and shrubs. Finding the right colors to compliment your home is also key. You don't want to choose every color but no more than one or two colors to really make an impact. And consider the time of year. Some may do better at different times of the year. Even in winter, purple cabbages and mums can add that pop of color a home needs. Below you'll find some of the best flowers and shrubs to add to your landscaping for the maximum impact of curb appeal.

Here are some of the best flowers to plant for curb appeal.

Roses

Roses have long held universal appeal with a wide range of people. The most gifted flower of course is the rose. There are several different varieties of roses in many different colors. Yes, some roses can be more upkeep, but some are pretty low maintenance. Roses in the Knock Out and Flower Carpet families are nearly disease proof. You can also go very low maintenance with a few varieties that grow well in pots set up next to the front door as the annual moss rose.

Lavender

Not only are these little purple blooms with tall green stems beautiful, but they also smell amazing and give off a relaxing and calming bit of aromatherapy. As a bonus, you can highlight to buyers that the lavender is edible, it tastes great in lemonade, baked goods, and sorbet. Lavender is pretty easy to care for it just wants lots of suns and well-drained soil.

Fuchsia

Fuchsias add stunning color to any yard, they can be a bit fussy, but will do well with moderate temperatures, moist soil, and in an area that is not too windy. For a similar looking plant that requires less specific conditions try a trailing begonia plant in a hanging basket.

Tulips

Tulips are incredibly beautiful with their deeply bright colored petals and strong bright green stems and leaves. These flowers, when purchased already grown, are easy to dig a hole for in the flower bed, place, and be done. They do like cooler climates though so in warmer areas amaryllis is the better choice.

Geraniums

This is a popular bedding plant that is a great choice for borders, porches, window boxes, and around a pool. They love full sun and lots of circulating air. If you have a shady space where you would like to plant a geranium-style flower try the perennial cranesbill geranium.

Finding the right flowers for your yard, your garden zone and in colors that will compliment takes just a little planning. But the reward will be amazing exterior photos ready for the market!
