Summer color in the South Florida garden


It already feels like Summer.... officially it wont be here until June 20th, but it is time to spruce up the old yard and get out and have some summer fun! This summer you might be like thousands of others and are planning to stay home this year, rising gas prices and the cost involved in traveling, seem to make it a more inviting and relaxed vacation.
I'm sure by now you have torn out those thirsty winter annuals and now it is time to plant carefree summer color. Flowers are not the only way to brighten up your garden. In the summer we have great choices of tropical foliage as well as annual flowers to give us the color we need to make our landscape POP!
Here is a list of tried and true easy care tropical and hardy plants you can use to brighten up that summer space. Don't forget Memorial Day and Fourth of July are right around the corner....

Of course, sun conditions and water conditions play a key role in choosing which plant. 

 The choices are endless and so are the color varieties. Let one of our Landscape Designers help you choose which plant will be best for your location and soil conditions.
