My Simple Potted Plants

SIMPLE-POTTED-PLANTS

I kept my potted plants simple and cheap this year! My energy has been down and I really didn’t want to spend a lot of money on plants. I’d rather save it for making fun summer memories with my girls!

Here is what I did:

DALIAS

2 Green pots of Dalias to greet my guests at the stairs by my front porch

Herb-Basket

1 Galvanized Steel Bucket holding herbs and a Mother’s Day gift from my Mother-in-Law

SPIRAL-GRASS

1 pot of my favorite funky spiral grass named Corkscrew or Juncus effusus ‘Curly Wurly’ that I plant every year.  It is so easy to keep happy and I love how fun it looks.

1 pot of plain jane red geraniums (pictured above).  They are the cheapest way to add color and take very little care.

SNAP-DRAGON-1

1 pot of snap dragons.  They were on sale and I wanted to add a pop of yellow to my backyard.

All in all, I only spent $25.00 for potted plants for both the back and front yard.  Not bad, huh?  They are nothing fancy, but they sure make me happy and make our little yard look thought of and taken care of.

……………

What did you plant this year? Do you plant the same types of flowers every year?
