English Garden flowers for April


An important principle of an English garden is to have something blooming at all times. This is especially easy to accomplish in April, when lots of plants are blooming in the garden.

Depending on the area of the country, some of these April flowers may bloom earlier or later. So be sure to check out my lists of March flowers and May flowers.

PERENNIALS:

Helleborus orientalis or Lenten Rose, can bloom for months. Flowers are usually muted colors of pinks and reds.
Pulmonaria or Lungwort has white or blue flowers and spotted leaves.
Primula vulgaris or English Primrose have deeply veined leaves and come in a wide variety of colors
Polygonatum odoratum or Solomon’s Seal has white flowers dangling from long, arching branches.
Aubrieta deltoidea or false rock cress, has lilac, pink, or purple flowers
Bergenia blooms in various shades of pinks and reds.
Dicentra spectabilis or common bleeding heart comes in white or various shades of pink.
Arabis procurrens white flowers and small, light green leaves
Iberis sempervirens white flowers similar to Arabis, but has dark, evergreen leaves.
