Spring and summer are the prime seasons to bring some life and vibrancy back to your outdoor space, no matter how big or small. Whether you have a tiny nook outside your apartment window, a fire escape, a sizeable porch or a stoop, an outdoor plant is the perfect way to bring your space to life.

While many folks like the idea of including plants in their living space, the upkeep and maintenance can be intimidating. With this in mind, Bloomscape created an Outdoor Collection of flowering plants that come pre-potted and well packaged. So all you have to do is unbox them and place them wherever you choose.

The new line includes four stunning collections, each featuring unique combinations of florals and foliage for any outdoor space — it all just comes down to your personal aesthetic preference.

Choose from the Whimsical, Tropical, Minimalist and Colorful collections. Also, best of all, these come in three sizes — a hanging basket, medium and large — so they can fit any size of outdoor space.

Check out each collection below in a bit more detail to ensure you choose the best fit for your vibe and style.

The Whimsical Collection includes white petunia flowers, pink-flowering geraniums, purple salvia and “Fireworks” fountain grass.

This collection brings a soft, ethereal look to your full-sun outdoor space. Best of all, these will continue flowering from spring through fall. Choose from the hanging basket, a large paper pot, or the medium size in either a paper pot or one of three planters.

I own this collection and can firmly attest that these require little to no maintenance. Just ensure that you’re watering them well (outdoor plants can take a lot of water, especially in the warmer months) and giving them eight or more hours of direct sunlight daily.

2. Outdoor Tropical Collection, $69-$99

The Tropical Collection is perfect for adding warmer yellow, orange and red tones to your outdoor space. It includes lantana blooms, dramatic sweet potato vines, delicate dahlias and canna lilies.

Large leaves and bold blooms are the stars of this arrangement, which is sure to bring vacation vibes to your space. Like the Whimsical Collection, this one also blooms from spring to fall and comes in a hanging basket, medium planter and large pot.

3. Outdoor Colorful Collection, $69-$99

The Colorful Collection is the one to buy if you prefer bright and cheerful hues. This one has chartreuse Lysimachia vines that intertwine with lavender Calibrachoa. It also has extra-large pink petunias for that bright and luxe summery feel.

The hanging basket option is pictured above, but this one also comes in a medium planter and large pot like the others and blooms from spring through fall.

4. Outdoor Minimalist Collection, $69-$99

Lastly, the Minimalist Collection is for the plant lover who prefers more understated tones — think silvers, whites and greens for a more sophisticated and muted color palette.

This set features silver dichondra vines and double-flowering white impatiens. It also has variegated polka-dot plants and dramatic begonia foliage. It may be simple, but it’s far from boring.

The Minimalist Collection is the only one of the four that only comes in medium and large sizes — no hanging basket option. Like all of the others, however, it blooms from spring through fall.
