Maine Plants

Spring has sprung, and it's the perfect time to add color and variety to your gardens. The warmer spring temperatures are ideal for planting new plants. When choosing plants, look for varieties that will thrive in Maine's weather conditions. Not only are these plants easier to grow, but they'll require less watering and intervention from you.

When selling your home, our REALTORS® recommend taking some time to spruce up your landscaping, so it creates an excellent first impression with potential buyers. Below are a few plants ideal for the Maine climate. 

  1. Lupines
    Lupines are a popular option thanks to their vivid coloration. They come in multiple hues, including blue, yellow, purple, red, and white. You can grow lupines from seeds, or you may transplant full-grown lupines. An advantage of lupines is that they're perennials; this means that they'll return every year, and you won't have to replant them. Don't worry if your first crop of lupines doesn't bloom, as it's common for lupines to skip blooming the first year you plant them. For optimal growth, plant your lupines in sandy soil. They can grow in thicker clay-based soil, but it may take them longer to take root. Plant lupines in an area with full sun and minimal shading.
  2. Eastern Serviceberry
    The Eastern serviceberry is also known as a shadbush or shadwood. It boasts gorgeous white flowers in the spring. Come fall, this shrub is lush with lovely yellow blooms. This shrub (also viewed by some as a small tree) can grow 20 feet tall. You can prune it back a bit if you need to contain its size. It grows well in full or partial sunlight and needs steady moisture to thrive.
