Lily-of-the-Valley Don't let this little beauty fool you -- though it's small, lily-of-the-valley packs a big fragrance in its nodding white or pink bell-shape flowers. It's a tough, low-care groundcover you can practically plant and forget in shady spots. Name: Convallaria selectionsLily-of-the-Valley How can such a tiny flower give off such a tremendous scent? Tiny lily of the valley sends up its lovely little sprays of bell-like white or pale pink flowers each spring. Allow it to spread a little (which it does, so much that it can be a problem) and it will perfume the whole area with its distinctive scent. It also makes adorable, tiny bouquets. It makes a good groundcover in small areas. Lily of the valley prefers shade and moist soil. In sunny or dry conditions, its leaves will brown. It can easily become invasive, so it's smart to put it in an area where it will be difficult to spread too far, such as a blocked in by a driveway or sidewalk. Light: Part Sun, Shade Type: Bulb, Perennial Height: Under 6 inches Width: 6-12 inches wide Flower Color: Pink, White Seasonal Features: Spring Bloom Problem Solvers: Deer Resistant, Groundcover, Slope/Erosion Control Special Features: Cut Flowers, Fragrance, Good for Containers, Low Maintenance Zones: 3-9 plant lily-of-the-valley with Perennial geranium Perennial geranium One of the longest bloomers in the garden, hardy geranium bears little flowers for months at a time. It produces jewel-tone, saucer-shape flowers and mounds of handsome, lobed foliage. It needs full sun, but otherwise it is a tough and reliable plant, thriving in a wide assortment of soils. Many of the best are hybrids. Perennial geraniums may form large colonies. Leadwort Leadwort For a fall show, plant leadwort. Its gentian-blue late-season flowers often continue to bloom even as the foliage turns brilliant red-orange in fall, making an outstanding autumn display.This plant is also sometimes called plumbago, but it's different from shrubby tropical plumbago. Use it as a groundcover that spreads well when in conditions it likes -- dry sites in full sun to partial shade. Hosta Hosta This plant hardly grown 40 years ago is now one of the most commonly grown garden plants. But hosta has earned its spot in the hearts of gardeners -- it's among the easiest plants to grow, as long as you have some shade and ample rainfall.Hostas vary from tiny plants suitable for troughs or rock gardens to massive 4-foot clumps with heart-shape leaves almost 2 feet long that can be puckered, wavy-edged, white or green variegated, blue-gray, chartreuse, emerald-edged -- the variations are virtually endless. Hostas in new sizes and touting new foliage features seem to appear each year. This tough, shade-loving perennial, also known as plaintain lily, blooms with white or purplish lavender funnel-shape or flared flowers in summer. Some are intensely fragrant. Hostas are a favorite of slug and deer.

Container gardening in galvanized tubs. Cute cottage garden idea.
Love the wash tubs they could bring some height to my flower gardens and color with annuals Fill Your Deck with Plants - Soften your space with beautiful blooms and lush greenery from container gardens. It's easy to tuck a few containers here and there. Here's a hint: You may not be limited to growing annuals. Perennials and shrubs survive outdoors in containers if the container is large enough, which may be 4- to 5-feet wide in northern climates.

Stacked pots for herb garden outside the kitchen door
Herb Garden Idea but great for all plantings for my front porch!
Finally! A visual how-to on building those beautiful flower pot towers. Let's put one our front porches this year! Great for an herb garden outside the kitchen door!
Tower of Herbs - 5 terra-cotta planters - Soilless potting mix - Assorted herbs - parsley, oregano, basil, chives - plant mint in top pot, since it can overwhelm other herbs. - Place largest planter in the location for the herb garden. Center 1 smaller pot within, upside down (with at least 6 inches of space around the inverted pot); fill with potting mix. - Repeat to create a second layer with 2 smaller pots, with 4 inches between them. Place final pot right side up on second inverted pot.

Peony 'Sorbet' One of the most beautiful color combinations in the Peony family, 'Sorbet' brings soft, luscious tones to the late spring garden. These blooms are 5 inches wide and tall, with 3 distinct layers of pastel color. Ideal for cutting (they are very long-lasting), they arise heavily on compact plants. 'Sorbet' blooms in midseason, late spring to early summer in most climates, on plants just 3 feet tall and 2 1/2 feet wide.
Peony "Sorbet". Very pretty.

IMPOSSIBLE TO STOP PINNING BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS. One of my favorite things. 'Sorbet' peonies love the color
Sorbet Peony - Peony Plants I would love to have some of these in our yard!!
Sorbet Peony (Paeonia lactiflora 'Sorbet'). Pink & White Double Peony. The unusual pink and white, 5-7" double blooms of this hybrid are as delectable as an elegant dessert. Fragrant flowers provide breathtaking beauty in early summer, and handsome foliage turns red in fall. Bushy plants grow up to 3' tall and require no special care. Zones 3-8. Full Sun to Partial Shade. Deer tend to avoid. Peonies are stalwarts in the garden, long-lived, easy to grow, and beautiful. They have few requirements: give them a sunny well-drained location, plant 2-4' apart, with the eyes (new buds at the crown) no more than 2" below soil level and apply fertilizer or compost in spring. They take a while to establish, often 3 years before first bloom. Zones 3-8. Zones: 3 - 4' Height: Peony Germination: 5-7" double blooms.
