I would like some suggestions on flowers I can plant in Virginia. I am planning to redo my backyard for my vow renewal in May. Do you have any suggestions?

It's hard to guess what the weather might be like (plants bloom according to the weather) but in most years you can expect some varieties of daffodils and tulips continue through early May to mid May. Pink Lady Jane Magnolias continue to bloom, Lilacs, Dogwoods and Apple trees begin late April to early May. Bleeding hearts are also lovely with their full blooms beginning early May. Evening primrose covers many of the flower beds with masses of pink blooms and cerastium (snow in summer) coming into full show. May 15-20, peonies begin blooming and continue until about the 10th of June. Potted annual pots including geraniums, begonias, and petunias can be left outside beginning around April 10th (typically the last frost date for our area). Jasmine vines beginning to bloom. A variety of roses beginning to bloom late May, and will continue all summer. Smoke trees begin to show their fluffy pink blooms. Climbing hydrangeas begin to bloom. The iris and poppies are also making their show in mid to late May.
