Cathy Isom has a bit of information about some plants to brighten up your outdoor patio space. That’s coming up on This Land of Ours.
One of the ways to make a patio feel special is to add several of the best patio plants around to transform the area into a perfect space. You can find plants that thrive in your shady retreat or in full sunlight. No matter the shape, size, or exposure you receive on your patio, you can find a plant or two -or ten – that will make your space exactly what you envision.
Some of the best patio plants include:
Pentas. This plant grows rows cheerful star-shaped flowers that bloom in large clusters. The flowers come in a multitude of colors, such as white, pink, lavender, or red.
Lantana. They’re known for being drought resistant, and these plants require a larger patio container to keep the aggressive roots happy.
A patio plant perfect for the tropical look is the Bromeliad. These add a fun patio accent, even if your plant decides not to bloom – which can happen at times.
Begonias will add a pop of color and will grow well in the sun or shade. They are also drought tolerant.
If you want a plant that shows off dozens of blooms, million bells are right up your lane. This plant has showy tubular blossoms that look like petunias without the pests that love to bother them.
Cosmos can brighten anyone’s day with their daisy-like, colorful appearance. These are tall flowers that come in multiple colors, such as pink, yellow, orange, white, and red. You can pair cosmos with plants that have silver foliage for an extra pop.
