Verbena

Verbena

Some Like It Hot: That's more than the title of a classic movie — it's also a good way to describe verbena. These sprawling plants look great spilling from containers and hanging baskets or cascading over retaining walls. They don't require a lot of attention, either. In fact, they do best in a relatively lean soil with quick drainage. Fertilize once in spring with a complete fertilizer. To keep foliage looking healthy, put verbena in the sunniest spot you can find.

Lobelia

Lobelia

The intense blues of this flower are enough to guarantee a place in everyone's heart (and garden). The mounding type is great for the front of beds and borders; the cascading type looks enchanting spilling from window boxes and pots. These lobelias are in their glory during the cool weather of spring and fall. Except for cool-summer areas, like the Pacific Northwest or higher altitudes, they usually stop flowering during the heat of summer. However, new heat-tolerant varieties are bridging the gap. When lobelia does stop flowering, shear plants back and they should bloom again when cooler temperatures return. In any event, it's wise to supply lobelia with fast-draining soil and a bit of shade during the hottest part of the day.

Osteospermum

Osteopermum

Also known as the African daisy or cape daisy, Osteospermum, which is exclusive to Lowe's, seems to get a smile no matter where it is. The daisy-like flowers are a delight to behold in the garden, but they're also a lovely addition to floral arrangements. Their palette of colors includes white, violet, lilac, purple, orange and yellow. Cape daisies like full sun and moist, well-drained soil. They flourish in the cooler weather of spring and fall. To encourage blooming, feed with a high-phosphorus fertilizer, such as 12-55-6, and deadhead regularly.

Daylilies

Daylily

Daylilies are so rugged that you'll sometimes find them growing in abandoned ditches. And although they perform best in full sun, they'll take a fair amount of shade, too. Trumpet-shape flowers last only a day (hence the name), but there are many flower stalks filled with flower buds to provide ample replacements. Most daylilies are in peak for several weeks in summer. Some cultivars have more than one flowering period, though. With more than 50,000 named cultivars, daylilies come in a wide range of colors and heights. The strappy foliage, which may be evergreen or deciduous, looks attractive if you remove dead flower stalks.

Clematis

Clematis

Talk about versatility — clematis can be found climbing a post, decorating a pot, or rambling over rocks as a groundcover. Most people like to see it climb — if for no other reason than to let the vine show off its beautiful flowers. Few other climbing plants offer such a broad range of bloom colors, shapes and seasons. Flower colors include light blue, violet, white, pink and wine red, and some clematis have ornamental seedheads to boot. Clematis likes full sun and moist, well-drained soil. It performs best if roots are shaded, either with mulch or by companion plants. Some gardeners simply plant a small shrub in front of it.

Bacopa

Bacopa

A few years ago, bacopa was a relative unknown in the gardening world. Not so these days. It simply has too much going for it to remain incognito. The long, cascading stems are smothered in tiny flowers in spring and fall (and intermittently through summer). Its trailing habit looks particularly good in hanging baskets, planters and window boxes. Keep bacopa evenly watered for continuous bloom.

Plant Height: 4 to 8 inches tall

Plant Width: 2 to 3 feet wide

Hosta

Hosta

If someone held a popularity contest for shade plants, hostas would be the hands-down favorite. There are countless variations, from diminutive plants suitable for pocket gardens to giants bearing leaves almost 2 feet long. Depending on cultivar, they can be puckered, wavy-edged, variegated, or solid color in hues of green, chartreuse or blue-gray. This tough, shade-loving perennial requires little more than moisture and protection from hot afternoon sun. However, it is a favorite food for deer and slugs, so some protection may be needed.

Plant Type: Perennial

Plant Height: To 5 feet tall, depending on variety

Plant Width: To 4 feet wide, depending on variety

Landscape Uses: Containers, Beds & Borders, Privacy, Slopes, Groundcover

Lily

Lily

One of the most captivating summer bulbs you could ever hope to grow, lilies offer some of the brightest colors and sweetest perfumes. Consequently, they're among the showiest garden plants. They also make great cut-flowers, but it's a good idea to snip off the pollen-covered stamens first so they don't stain the surroundings. Lilies require good drainage and will spread freely in lighter, fertile soils. They're favored by rabbits, so consider fencing, repellents or simply growing clover nearby as an alternative food source.
