Year Round Plants That Improve The Look Of Your Property In Houston

Are you looking to add plants to your property that provide interest all year round? A quick lift can be provided with a few of these species. Below we've highlighted three types of flora that can bring appeal to your property:

Euryops pectinatus (Golden Daisy Bush) is a bright yellow flowering evergreen shrub that will bloom all 12 months, right on through the winter. It needs a warm, sunny spot and three to four feet of space to grow. It is especially nice to see when so many other plants are dormant.

Cercis occidentals (Western Redbud) is a small tree, that provides appeal all year. In spring it is covered with magenta flowers, in the summer bright blue-green foliage combine with magenta seed pods, in the fall the tree turns light yellow or red and in winter the bare branches are beautifully patterned and especially pretty when lit at night. The Western Redbud thrives in a dry location after regular waterings for the first two years.

Scaevola (Mauve Clusters or Blue Fan Flower) Its tight growth and low mounding habit really keeps the weeds out. Its rich small evergreen leaves display a mass of tiny purple flowers January through November. Hollies come in so many varieties as ground covers, shrubs and also trees. Most are evergreen, rich in color with bright red berries which are wonderful for decorating your home during the holidays.
