I love plants and adore the flowers that fill my garden with color, fragrance, and beauty.  But my garden would be only half a garden without the birds, hummingbirds, bees and butterflies that fill the space with graceful movement, birdsong, and the low rumbling buzz of bumblebees. These 10 red or nearly red flowers are sure to be a hit with hummingbirds. Add enough of these plants to your garden and you’ll never have to fill a hummingbird feeder again!

White can be a great addition to any garden, but is especially important for gardens that will be enjoyed most often early in the morning and in the evening. White and silver plants tend to glow in the low light, while darker colors fade into the background. Using white can make your garden more inviting when the light wanes. These 27 container combination recipes use primarily white flowers, with a few light colors and the occasional dark color to round out the options.

 

Gardens can be magical at any time of day, but there is something especially magical about gardens as dusk falls, the edges blur and reality recedes the tiniest bit. Isn’t that the time when it’s easiest to believe in fairies, magic and another dimension just beyond our senses? For many of us, first thing in the morning and late in the day is when we most often have time to spend in our gardens. As the light dims, the colors of the rainbow start to recede. However, as the moon rises, white flowers and silver foliage take central stage, seeming to glow with otherworldly light. If you haven’t considered the joys of a white garden before, now might be the perfect time to add some white to your garden or even transform a portion of your garden into an all-white and silver moon garden.

If you have gardened in the South, you are likely quite familiar with Caladiums. These tropical plants are a garden staple both in landscapes and containers in the southern portion of the United States. For many of the rest of us, Caladiums are an exotic and unusual plant.

In addition to a wide array of tropical colors they add to landscapes and recipes, they are also wonderful additions to cut-flower arrangements. Here you’ll find container recipes we’ve designed with Heart to Heart Caladiums and we’re hoping this provides ideas on how you can bring a tropical flair to your garden!
