If you have a hard time growing things, see what is growing along the highways and out in open land. Those are the plants that will normally tolerate your weather conditions and give you beautiful blooms with minimal maintenance.

Hummingbirds, butterflies, and bumble bees love this flowering bush known as a Rock Rose. Here in the south, this lovely bush will continue to bloom up until December which provides lovely color for a long period of time.
Do you plant flowers that are native to your area or does it matter to you?
