5 Flowering Plants Which Are Low-Maintenance and Look Great

You want your garden to look great, but you don’t have a lot of time to tend to it? Or, maybe, you just don’t have the knack for it? Don’t worry at all, because we have put together a comprehensive list of the best looking flowering plants that need little to no maintenance at all.

Perennial Flowering Plants with Low Maintenance

#1. The Sedum

Here is an absolute garden favorite. It has big, luscious, star-shaped blooms that go well into the fall. You needn’t worry that the Sedum won’t come back next year because it will. That’s why we love these flowering plants, in the first place. Shop for seeds here.

#2. Agastache

You might mistake it for lavender, but you shouldn’t. Even though it’s often forgotten or even overlooked, its flowers attract a lot of hummingbirds and butterflies all the long of the summer. The amazing thing about it is that it comes in any color you want. Their stems are long and lean, making these flowering plants into a fantastic backdrop for any garden.

You can find Agastache seeds right here.

#3. Coreopsis

Believe us when we tell you that you are going to fall in love with these flowering plants the minute you lay eyes on them. Although they can come in pink, red, and orange as well, the traditional yellow will make your backyard look like a haven.

They have something from the sunniness of the marigold flower, but a lot more delicate. Decorate your garden and plant the coreopsis seeds from scratch yourself.

#4. The Pasque Flower

Are you a gardener who revels in an unusual bloom? That it’s high time you made room in your backyard for the Pasque Flower. It also goes by the name Pulsatilla vulgaris, and it will bring some much-needed texture to your garden.

It typically comes in bright purple with an orange middle, and once it disappears, you will still have the seed heads to decorate your garden for several weeks. Not that it goes away so easily. It’s a perennial plant and very tolerant when it comes to drought.

 

#5. Penstemon

You might think that these lovely flowering plants are very delicate when you first take a glance at them. However, you would be wrong in thinking that. This one is really tough. It starts blooming early in the summer, and it doesn’t let go until late in the fall. Therefore, your garden will have a spectacular look for a few months straight simply thanks to the Penestemon. You can go for the signature scarlet or the most uncommon purple, pink, and white. And, as if all that wasn’t enough, these lovely flowering plants also attract hummingbirds.

We believe that, as far as low maintenance goes, you really cannot have it simpler than with these flowering plants. Root them in your backyard, water them from time to time and let them embellish your garden.
