Use Flowers to Solve Your Problem Spot

Flowers are a beautiful and inexpensive way to turn what could be a problem into delightful points of interest.

  • Use shade-loving flowers. Such as impatiens or begonia, wherever sun hungry grass refuse to grow.
  • Use a fast growing flowering vine to disguise landscape eyesores such as a garbage area or an unsightly garage.
  • Create supports on smooth surfaces with fishing line or wire attached to nails or screws. Popular flowering vines include clematis, with its gorgeous red, pink or purple flowers, and the fast growing, trumpet-creeper (Campsis), with large trumpet-shaped flowers that attract hummingbirds.
