You don’t have to sacrifice beauty for low maintenance. Instead include hosta varieties available in a myriad of leaf shapes, sizes and color combinations. These mainstays of the shade garden are hardy, reliable and provide added beauty to the landscape from spring through fall.
As the summer sizzles and spring flowers fade, it’s time to plan and make room for perennials that come alive and bloom gloriously from now into autumn. Focus on some of the great garden classics such as Black-eyed Susan, Russian Sage, Calamint, Asters, Feather Reed grass and many other perennial favorites. Plant once—in multiples—and enjoy for years to come!
