The 5 Plants
Coneflowers are an excellent option for any flower lover looking to add that bright pop of color to their beds or garden. They are often a go-to for their low-maintenance nature and size.
Typically, these colored beauties grow to be 2 to 4 feet tall and up to 2 feet wide. While they do need some well-drained soil, they do lovely in full sun or partial shade. Coneflowers are known to attract birds and butterflies, so they are pollinator attractors.
Color range: purple, pink, crimson, white, yellow, orange, and green.
Are you looking for some large flowers similar to a hibiscus? Cosmos are large flowers that usually reseed themselves. These colossal flowers bloom from summer to winter, and they often grow up to 6 feet tall.
Cosmos are exceptionally easy to grow from seed, so you shouldn't have any issues growing them in your garden.
Daylillies withstand floods, droughts, salt, and are used to control erosion on hillsides. These beautiful blooms come in essentially every color except for blue and white.
The shape of the flower ranges from triangular, circular, or even star-shaped.
This plant can grow to reach up to four feet tall and two feet wide. Many daylilies attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and birds.
Hostas are easy to grow, hardy, and perfect for any shade garden. Their foliage comes in a wide array of colors, textures, and shapes. They grow between 4 inches to 3 feet high and 6 inches to 6 feet wide.
In the summer months, the hosta blooms beautiful purple, white, or lavender flowers. You can divide the clumps up in early spring or early fall. They favor moist soil but do not overwater.
Yucca is drought-tolerant and features beautiful white flowers along with its spiked leaves. These plants work great as a centerpiece for any southern garden.
