As the rains start to waver and the sun warms up the fertile lands of Lebanon, the terrain begins to blossom with life-giving color. Springtime is a beautiful time of year in this country of ours, and it’s nice to add a pop of natural color to our homes in addition to admiring the beauty of the outdoors.
If you have a “green thumb” and are looking to spruce–pun intended!–up your outdoor space with some living color, here are several recommendations that grow excellently in this time of year.
Lebanon is decorated with these vibrantly colored vines every year from spring to autumn. You can observe them growing on the sides of buildings or in parks, and they are very low-maintenance. With so many colors to choose from, these plants are likely to add a fresh feeling of spring to your home.
Known as Lebanon’s national flower, these delicate blooms even grow in the wild. They have a bulbous root and unique leaves that resemble lily pads. They also come in a wide range of colors, and some are even multicolored.
These colorful leafy plants are commonly referred to as sejjedeh in Lebanon, or “carpet” in English, for their velvety texture. They come in many deep royal hues. They are well-adapted to shade and partial sunlight and make a great addition to anyone’s collection of foliage.
The possibilities of color are endless with these lively spring perennials. They offer large petals full of vivid hues and can grow rapidly. They can even attract hummingbirds, which is a special element in any outdoor space.
Although pretty much anything will grow in our blessed lands of Lebanon, these particular seasonal flowers are sure to bring some sunshine and vibrant color to your home with minimal gardening and cultivation.
