Your newly established plant mom here.
Recently, I’ve really been digging gardening, and it’s a hobby that I’ll likely stick with. As you can imagine, since moving into a new home, there’s plenty of work to do in this area.
With summer temps rising, I’ve been on the lookout for flowering plants that are drought-tolerant or love the sun, and don’t require a ton of time or effort. I’ve discovered these 10 low-maintenance plants for easy summer growing:
• Lantana (lantana camara)
• Garden phlox (phlox paniculata)
• Madagascar periwinkle (catharanthus roseus)
• Mealycup sage
• Threadleaf coreopsis
• Blanket flower
