Due its elegance, Mandevilla has been the favorite ornamental vine in most patios. Thriving best in zones 9-11, it needs well-drained soil to continue to flourish. And while its blooms are a bright shade of red, it loves the shade rather than full sunlight. Thus, it’s best to let this elegant vine crawl up a patio covered column than an exposed pergola.
If you love large blooms, hibiscus gives you just that in varying shades of pink, red and white. Blooming during summer and fall, you’ll see hibiscus attracting birds and butterflies to your yards. This is also a reason why arboretums love having hibiscus in their garden list.
As the sun shines its brightest and the rain clouds are kept at bay, Yarrow flourishes and blooms in bold clusters of yellow. Water- and heat-tolerant yarrow also blooms in shades of red, pink and white to name a few. This is also a low maintenance plant keeping all your garden input on the low scale. Another good thing about yarrow is that most animals will steer away from it, making sure your garden will keep its blooming beauty away from gnawing animals. To make yarrow bloom its best, plant it where it can receive the full strength of the sun and in a well-drained soil.
These are just 3 of the prettiest plants you can have in your garden. Just remember to always follow the planting specifications each plant needs so that you’ll get the best blooms!
