Tending your flowerbeds can be tough in the regular rush of life, but that doesn’t mean you have to let them grow haggard and weedy. Instead, you can try filling those spaces with easy-to-grow flowers that pretty much take care of themselves.
Given the variety of flowers available, it should be easy to get something that matches your needs perfectly. Below, we’ve assembled a list of 18 of the best low-maintenance flowers available.
If you’re the forgetful type and occasionally let your plants dry out, then you should plant drought-tolerant flowers. Many of these flowers are natives of the prairie or other arid areas and are accustomed to only getting occasional waterings. Our slideshow includes numerous drought-resistant flowers that are sure to live through lengthy periods of neglect. In fact, some of them even thrive because of it!
Another reason you may be looking for low-maintenance flowers is because you really need low-maintenance landscaping for use on difficult terrain on your property. Maintaining a steep slope, for example, can create all sorts of problems. Keeping that slope trimmed and carefully landscaped poses certain safety risks, so finding a hardy plant — flower or not — to seed it can be the perfect solution. You just leave it alone to grow and it will look wonderful! Our slideshow includes a few of these kinds of plants, too.
