1 great way to bring some pink into your garden is to plant pastel pink blooms. Brides often choose pastel pink blooms for wedding arrangements, and the flowers create romantic bouquets. Various kinds of typical flowers, like roses and geraniums, come in pastel pink colours. Gardeners can find a variety of plant varieties that develop pastel pink flowers, such as shrubs, vines, trees and trees.
Roses (Rosa Spp.) Come in a huge array of colours, such as pastel pink. They also come in many different plant types, including small shrubs, bigger shrubs, shrubs and growing roses. The flowers themselves may also have different sizes and shapes. Some rose cultivars available in light pink include “Bride’s Dream,” “New Zealand” and “Sexy Rexy.” Roses generally need at least six hours of sunlight per day together with well-drained dirt. Different types of roses tolerate various temperatures. Gardeners just about anywhere in the U.S. can find a rose variety that will grow in the local climate with proper care.
Showy milkweed (Asclepias speciosa) is a perennial flower that grows 2 to 4 feet tall. Native to the West Coast and Central U.S., the plant produces pastel pink blooms during summer. The flowers grow in massive clusters and have a star-like form. Named after their milky sap, the crops are rather poisonous. They grow well in full sunlight and don’t demand much irrigation. This plant tolerates U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 4 through 9 and hosts monarch butterflies.
Geraniums (Geranium maderense) come in many colors, such as purple, white, white, pastel pink and dark pink. The frequent term “geranium” often describes less hardy potted flowers in the Pelargonium genus. True geraniums, unlike pelargoniums, tolerate temperatures down to about 23 degrees Fahrenheit, or USDA zones 9a and warmer. They reach heights of about 3 feet tall, need moderate levels of moisture and do best in full or partial sunlight. The flowers often have a darker pink colour on the inside along with a pastel pink shade close to the borders of the flower petals.
Rhododendron and Azalea
Rhododendrons and azaleas (Rhododendron spp.) Are generally shrubs or small trees which occasionally have pastel pink flowers. Different varieties of rhododendrons tolerate various distances, although they generally tolerate USDA zones 4 through 9. Evergreen azaleas develop in much warmer areas than deciduous azaleas and rhododendrons, like the southern U.S. and the subtropical climate in Hawaii. Rhododendrons and azaleas need exceptional soil drainage, full or partial shade and medium to large quantities of moisture. Some varieties with pink flowers include ‘Lem’s Monarch’ and ‘Pink Walloper.’
Cherry trees (Prunus serrulata) are known for their attractive pink blooms during the spring. Other associated fruit types, such as plums and apricots, often also have pink blossoms. The trees grow 25 to 30 feet tall and lose their leaves throughout fall and winter. Cherries can develop in USDA zones 3 through 9, although particular cold hardiness will vary depending on the number. They prefer full sunlight and places with moderate levels of rainfall.
