Front yard flowers

Knock-out roses
Knock-out roses
Miscanthus grass
New Gold lantana
Black and Blue Salvia


It seems anytime I write about my plants it is always the ones in the backyard. So, I thought I would do a little update on my front beds. At the corner of my house I have 3 of the Miscanthus grasses. I love these. They take up lots of space and are so low maintenance(love that).



I have 3 knock-out roses that are also so easy to maintain. A little pruning and they do great! I guess you could say all my front yard plants are low maintenance. The lantana is colorful and easy. I guess the most problematic plants are the black and blue salvia(Salvia guaranitica). I was beginning to wonder if they were going to come back from last year or not and they finally have. They are right by my lantana and the hummingbirds love them. That is if the hummingbirds ever come back. I keep hearing from different sources that the weather may have had some effect on them.

Knockout roses are the best. I have 3 of them in my rose garden. They are so low maintenance. I love the Black & Blue Salvia too. Can't wait to see the blooms.
