The Can’t Miss Six!

The Can’t Miss Six!

Below you will find six plants that are some of the easiest to care for and grow in the garden.  All are drought tolerant and are very seldom bothered very little by deer or rabbits (two of my greatest nemeses!) In addition to their drought tolerant and pest resistant properties these plants are very good at attracting beneficial insects like bees, butterflies, ladybugs, lacewings, as well as many others. Plant them near a vegetable garden to discourage pests and encourage predator insects to hang out where you need them.  As an added bonus these flowers are all beautiful in the garden!
