The Beautiful Low-Maintenance Garden

Beautifully Manicured Flowers in GardenGardening can be a chore, but not if you choose the right plants for your summer garden.  These are just a couple of recommendations of summer plants that are beautiful without being fussy.

Hot Pink Blooms: ‘Ann Folkard’ Hardy Geranium

Size: up to 2 feet tall and 3 feet wide

Preferred conditions: full sun to partial shade; prefers moist, well-drained soil

This perennial has a distinctive black spot in the center, which gives way to bright magenta along the outsides.  Its lime green foliage really makes these blossoms stand out.

Spikes and Stripes: ‘Sparkler’ Sedge

Size: up to 2 feet tall and 2 feet wide

Preferred conditions: partial to full shade; prefers moist soil

Shade-loving plants are hard enough to come by, but shade-loving plants that are actually nice to look at are even more rare.  The green and white stripes on the blades of the ‘sparkler’ sedge are what make this plant an attractive and unique addition to your summertime low-maintenance garden.

Foliage that Won’t be Ignored: ‘Red Dragon’ Persicaria

Size: up to 3 feet tall and 3 feet wide

Preferred conditions: full sun to partial shade; prefers moist, well-drained soil

Their tiny little white flowers dot the deep purple and green foliage.  The red stems add another dimension of color to this low-maintenance plant.
