Five Low-Maintenance Plants to Boost Your Curb Appeal

For many of us, it’s not quite time to head outside and start sprucing up the yard just yet, but it’s never too early to start planning. Upgrading your landscaping with new plants is a quick and cost-efficient way to improve the aesthetic of your home. Here are five beautiful, no-fuss plants to consider.


Shady spots can be difficult to work with, but we have a simple solution: Hostas. These show stopping leaves come in a variety of colors, including green, gray, blue, cream, and yellow-gold. Another benefit of this lovely plant is that you can choose between small, medium, and large varieties depending on the size of the space you’re working with.


Do you need a plant that thrives against almost all odds? Look no further than the Mandevilla. These red, pink, and white trumpet-shaped flowers bloom continuously, attracting hummingbirds and butterflies. They hold up in heat and drought, and deer and rabbits have no interest in eating them.


These shrubs are the very definition of carefree. Nandinas have airy-looking foliage and white flowers in the spring. When fall comes, you can expect to see red berries and vibrant shades of red, bronze, and purple.


If you live in an area that never experiences frost, you may want to consider Pentas, the tropical perennial grown as an annual plant that blooms almost nonstop. Even on the hottest of days, you can enjoy these vibrant plants.


Caladiums love shady spots or areas with filtered sun, depending on which variety you choose. These plants spread up to 10 inches, making them ideal for planting in masses or containers.
