Try These Tough Plants In Your Landscape

Ready to do some landscaping?  Here are some suggestions for you.   These plant picks are based on our years of experience growing them in the greenhouses and using them in our own flower beds.  Plus these are some of the plants the professional landscapers are using, and they only use the toughest plants.

lantana Lantana is a plant that thrives in hot and humid summers.  Yellow lantana is the most popular color but there are also pink/rose and yellow bicolors as well as peach and red varieties. 

begonias Most begonias need to be planted in a shady spot, but there is one that can handle the sun.  The bronze leaf red variety performs well in both full sun and full shade.  In the sun the foliage turns very dark and the blooms become a deep red.

angelonia Angelonia is quickly becoming a favorite of professional landscapers.  The Serena Purple variety is the most impressive in the landscape.  Each plant blooms all summer with spikes of deep purple blooms. 

cora-vinca1 Cora Vinca is a new disease resistant vinca (also known as periwinkles).  Vinca does best in hot, dry summers so when we have a wet summer that is cooler than usual, vinca tends to struggle.  Cora Vinca is the new breeding break through that improves vinca’s ability to survive these types of conditions.  Also new for 2010 is Cora Cascade Vinca, a series of trailing vinca that looks great in hanging baskets, containers or any where the plants can spread out and show their stuff.
