Sunny Combos for Year Round Interest
By Kerry Ann Mendez
Sprucing up your garden doesn't need to be complicated or time consuming - by combining a few low maintenance plants you can quickly transform your yard from "blah" to beautiful. For sunny areas, your plant choices are almost limitless!
First, pick a section of your garden that could use some "fixing up". The goal is to have dazzling color during the growing season, as well as through winter. To achieve a four-season masterpiece that is also low maintenance, simply combine (1) evergreen perennials and shrubs, (2) woody plants with colorful bark, stems, structure or berries and (3) conifers and evergreen flowering shrubs.
Below are suggestions for a sun to part sun location. Pick one (or more) from each category to combine for a nonstop, irresistible composition.
Colorful Bark, Stems, Structure and/or Berries
Conifers and Evergreen Flowering Shrubs
