This will encourage them to make your garden a regular stop. To get started, consider planting some of the flowers here.

These flowers enjoy shade and need to be placed in a location with moist but well-drained soil. These flowers early in the year, so make sure you plant them somewhere they are easy to see. They will return year after year.

Crested Iris

If you carefully plant and care for your crocus flowers, they can last for a lifetime. This is a flower that should be planted in the fall and then by early spring, it will bloom and flourish in your yard. Crocuses prefer sandy or gritty soil that is well drained. In a herb or rock garden is the perfect place to plant them.

Wood Hyacinth Bluebells

These flowers bloom in a number of colors from deep pinks and purples to blues and whites. They are sold in bulb form and will naturalize rapidly.
