We found some of our favorites and thought we would share them with you as you think about creating a beautiful landscape for your home this year!


Butterfly Weed

Not sure who named this pretty orange flower because it is anything but a weed. Butterfly weed is a perennial that isn’t invasive or troublesome, it is in fact, quite the opposite. The sweet orange color is a wonderful way to brighten up your landscape and add to the beautiful colors spring and summer bring. Butterfly weed likes to live in sunny spots in your landscape that are just a bit dry, which makes them a great choice if you are looking to cut back on how much water you use to keep your landscape looking great this year!

 Bright Summer Flowers


A beautiful blue-purple geranium with a pristine white center, this small mound of a plant is the perfect addition to your landscape for a colorful and beautiful spring, summer, and fall. Rozanne turns to a lovely burnt orange/red whenrozanne.jpg autumn rolls around, keeping the flower beds something to enjoy nearly all year long. It is a great flower to use to tie together other plants and colors in your flower beds if you are looking for a little something else. www.geraniumrozanne.com


Arkansas Bluestar

A great name for a beautiful and delicate flower that looks like a star. This plant grows up to 3 feet high and just about as wide. This perennial is sure to make a lovely statement in your landscape as it has a delicate and airy look because of its small flowers and thin leaves. When autumn arrives, the plant turns anarkansas blue star.jpg incredible golden color that is simply magnificent to behold. An added bonus, Arkansas Bluestar is deer and drought resistant!
