Just because it’s almost summertime, that doesn’t mean you want to spend your every waking moment in the garden tending to your growing plants. This year, consider planting low-maintenance plants that will look beautiful without requiring a lot of attention.
Here are some of our favorites, and all will do well in the soil and climate we have in the Kansas City area:
Black Scallop Bugleweed (Ajuga) – This spreading plant makes ideal ground cover and requires moist soil to thrive.
Bronze Beauty Bugleweed (Ajuga) – Another spreading plant, this purplish-blue gem requires almost no maintenance at all.
Catlin’s Giant Bugleweed (Ajuga) – With green leaves and purplish-blue blooms, this plant is very popular in Kansas City because customers almost never have to tend to it.
Chocolate Chip Bugleweed (Ajuga) – While it sounds delicious, this hearty plant is anything but tasty to deer and rabbits that might try and nibble on it.
As always, the plants you choose should match your existing outdoor foliage, and that is why we have put together a plant guide for you to use and search through to find the perfect plants for your garden.
