This year, I’m going to buy more plants that provide food and shelter for pollinators.
I would not be without Verbena bonariensis in my garden. It’s an annual, but it attracts birds, butterflies, and hummingbirds...and bees.
We need native plants in our gardens, since natives are a vital part of a healthy eco-system.
Bright accents will make any blue/grey background plantings pop!
Silver-leaved plants like Artemisia and sage are heat and drought tolerant as well as being unappetizing to deer and rabbits.
Now that we have had our first frosts in the Midwest, I am thinking about what to plant next year.
The word derives from the Greek word xeros, which means dry.
Use this shrub as a focal point or in a shrub border to create fall interest.
