Spring Ahead With a New Landscape Design
Read on to learn more about Spring 2022 landscaping colors, how to choose plants for your Dallas spring landscaping, and how to incorporate the spring trends into your landscaping for your North Texas home or business.
Let’s get started!
Introduce Tropical Colors With Plants in Vibrant Oranges and Reds
Tropical plant varieties are the perfect option if you are looking for a burst of color and something a bit unexpected for Dallas when it comes to your landscaping.
However, if you’re more interested in finding plants that are both native and drought-resistant, you’ll have a few options to choose from:
Texas Sage Is Drought-Resistant
Texas Sage has gorgeous silvery foliage with bright purple flowers. As soon as the humidity rises after a dry winter, this plant starts to bloom, making it ideal for a spring Dallas landscape installation.
This option is particularly useful in areas where it can be hard to get aesthetic appeal from brightly colored blooms due to dry climate.
Red Yucca Adds Evergreen Color
Red Yucca is a popular option for both home and business landscapes Dallas. Thanks to the fact that it’s a native Texas desert plant, it’s fairly low maintenance and it’s a great addition that makes for cost-efficient landscape maintenance. Red Yucca can provide persistent blooms throughout the season for plenty of color.
Rock Rose for Bright Tropical-looking Blooms
Rock Rose has bright pink hibiscus-like flowers. These flowers even attract butterflies as a native Texas species. When not in bloom, Rock Rose can act as a ground cover to protect your landscaping from season to season.
Texas Bluebonnet: A Must-have for Residential North Texas Landscape Installation
This is the Texas state flower and it blooms in the spring with a blue flowering stalk that has tips of white. It’s a gorgeous must-have flowering plant that adds some local aesthetic appeal for your Dallas home or business.
Organic Neutrals and Greens From Native Vegetation for Climate Friendly Landscape Maintenance
One of the 2022 landscaping trends is about bringing the outdoors in and the indoors out. So why not enjoy the best of both worlds? This spring, your landscaping is the perfect chance to create a greater connection to the natural environment on your property.
It’s also an effective method to create climate friendly landscaping using native vegetation. Color-wise, these plants introduce a neutral color palette to your landscaping that helps blur the difference between indoors and outdoors on your property.
Here are a few plants to try to create the effect of organic neutrals and greens using native vegetation:
- Wavy Cloak Fern
- Autumn Sage
- Dwarf Adagio Maiden Grass
Drought-tolerant plants in this category also have the added bonus of requiring less care. They are also perfect for creating climate friendly landscaping that is also cost-efficient in terms of landscape maintenance for your business or home.
Specimen and Accent Non-flowering Green Plants
Another Spring 2022 trend for Dallas landscaping is to install statement green plants. These plants are not only useful because some are drought-resistant. These non-flowering plant options have a lush green color. They will make your landscape design look professional and well maintained when used as specimen plants.
If you have plenty of space available for your commercial landscaping, Dwarf Palmetto is a slow-growing palm that you can use to create privacy or for ground cover.
Princess Caroline Napier Grass
The Princess Caroline Napier Grass has wide leaves with a deep purple color. It never flowers and it’s heat and drought resistant. As a native Texas plant, it’s attractive and perfect for planting in mixed borders or as a specimen plant.
Ways to Incorporate Very Peri With Your Spring Landscaping Colors
Brilliant blooms are a part of any spring flower arrangement. For your landscaping, it should be no exception. If your landscaping is limited to a small space, incorporating flowering plants with large blooms is the perfect way to maximize visual interest for the space.

Here are some flowering plants that you can use to match with trending Spring 2022 colors:
Some native Texas species of trees that produce white or pastel color flowers include the beautiful trees that also produce white flowers such as the Texas Dogwood, Mexican Plum, and the Anacacho Orchid, and the Redbud tree.
Other complementary color flowering plants include Maximillian Sunflower and White Honeysuckle.
