Plants for the Lazy Gardener
It's easy to grow these carefree plants that thrive on neglect.
Look to the Natives
If you want to know which plants grow best in your region, just look around. North American wildflowers, such as purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea), are practically carefree from zones 3 to 9 because they've evolved in harmony with the environment and native pests. Look to smaller, local nurseries for plants native to your region.
