Cozy Corner Garden Bed

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

If you only have one garden bed, plant it to perform in all seasons with plants that excel in the South.

A picket fence, arbor, and concrete walk define a space that has potential, but a patch of grass and a skimpy shrub don’t make much of an impression.


For a delicious mix, pair berry plants with shrubs, roses, perennials, and annuals. Start with a colorful mix of woody perennial plants that excel in the South: hibiscus, rose, and butterfly bush. These hardy options provide no-fuss color, structure, and texture for a small garden. Vinca is a low-care addition in front. For a flash of newness every season, insert pockets of bulbs and favorite annuals in the sprawling groundcover.
