It’s time to start planning your dream backyard! Landscape design can be casual or fancy, low maintenance or high maintenance, but all gardens should feature some stand out plants. Want your landscape to dazzle this summer? Consider these five superstars:
Knockout Roses: Also called Rosa Radrazz, these beautiful rose plants are hearty and tolerate drought and partial shade. The scent is of a mild tea rose, and the beauties bust out with blooms all summer long!
Sweet Bay Magnolia: Also called magnolia virginiana, this tree features cup-shaped, sweetly fragrant creamy white flowers from mid-spring and sometimes continue sporadically throughout the summer. This beautiful tree is often planted in public parks.
Coral Bark Japanese Maple: This small tree is known for its beautiful fall foliage and its distinctive pink bark, which adds character and color to winter landscapes. It’s a hardy tree that’s easy to grow.
‘Stella de Oro’ Daylily: This perennial blooms bright yellow flowers from May to August. The fragrant flowers will draw butterflies to your yard!
May Night Salvia: Also known as wood sage, this perennial offers deep violent-blue blooms from May to June. It tolerates deer, drought and dry soil. It’s a beautiful fresh cut flower, and a member of the mint flower that attracts bees and butterflies.
