Not so green thumb?

You can enjoy the beauty of a garden with low-maintenance plants that are easy to grow and don’t require much effort.

  • Marigolds: Bring shades of yellow, red and gold to your garden with marigolds, which thrive in full sun and can withstand hot summers.
  • Rosemary: A tasty seasoning and fragrant plant, rosemary thrives in well-drained soil and full sun. You can also plant rosemary in containers to bring inside during colder months.
  • Snapdragons: These unique flowers can stand up to cooler weather in spring and fall. Bonus: They may attract butterflies to your garden.
  • Cosmos: These daisy-like blooms do well even in poor soils and tolerate drought once they’re up and growing.
