Mum's Always The Word!

Mums have always been a favorite of mine. The hardy mum flowers every fall and comes back every year. It can be reproduced by carefully dividing plants or simply watching them spread over the years. Mums come in a variety of colors including yellow, red, orange and white. Mums are the perfect addtion to any yard or sidewalk. The mum works excellent in the fall to brighten up a dying garden. Check them out! You will not be disappointed. They even make a great cut flower, it can last in a vase for days on end.

Rose of Sharon or Hibiscus Tree

The Rose of Sharon or Hibiscus is a very unique plant. It can be mistaken for a tree as it grows up to 15' high. This hedge-like plant can be pruned to any shape. It flowers for two full months in July and August in beautiful Red, Pink, White and Purple flowers. Makes a great privacy barrier or hedge. This plant is fairly drough tolerant, the leaves will droop to let you know if they need water. Very easy to take care of! Click here for even more info on the Rose of Sharon or hibiscus species.
