I know that I am a little bit late on this, but I want to plant some flowers in my front "yard". I have a little mulch area about 3 x 3 feet, and I bought a little copper planter to use (about 1 foot diameter). I went to Lowe's yesterday to pick out some plants, and to say the least, I was overwhelmed.
I don't know much about flowers except for the usual...I like the roses, tulips, daisies, etc. but I'm not super attached to any of them. I know that I like peonies, but I don't think that's very realistic for my project. I want something with a punch of color! It doesn't matter what kind it is really, except that it should be pretty resilient. I am not known for keeping plants alive. I have actually killed every plant ever given to me and I am somewhat scared to take on this project in full view of all my neighbors and any passerby's.
In a nutshell, please help me find something with some color that will be difficult to kill.
I did take some pictures of some plants that caught my eye...here ya go...
I kept coming back to these gerber daisies. Are they easy to keep alive? Come on people, help please!
