Plants are relatively easy to grow if their fundamental needs are met and satisfied. Keeping a watchful eye on pests, diseases, and malnutrition will ensure your plants health and beauty.

Bear in mind one aspect though. If you are planting your personal perennials, annuals, shrubs, bushes, or vines when they are immature, you must visualize how they will appear when fully grown and matured. Immature plant dimensions can be misleading because they have no relation to the final full height of the mature plant.

Not sure what plant to put in your plantings? Follow this planting guide and find out how to take care and maintain your plants so that they look in pristine condition all the season long. The following plant descriptions are my favorite picks and contains a bit of information on which containers are ideal candidates:
