Plants Perfect For Zone 7
Are you looking for the perfect plant that will grow well in Zone 7? If the answer is yes, read on to learn about a few beautiful plants that will proliferate in this particular zone.
The Bloodroot plant is a perennial that is more than just a pretty flower. This perennial produces a bright red juice that was once used as war paint by native Indians but is still used to dye clothes and to stain certain types of furniture. This particular plant is perfect for areas that could use ground cover. It will grow quickly, even when it is planted in shady areas. The Bloodroot plant will bloom during the spring months with large, white flowers that look like a mixture of a daisy and buttercup. Since the leaves are a vibrant green, the flowers stand out strong. This is the perfect plant for gardeners who wish to attract butterflies and bees.
Bird's Foot Violet
This Zone 7 plant isn't just pretty. It is also edible. As an herb, Bird's Foot Violet is often used to thicken soups and as an herbal remedy. This plant can be transformed into essential oil and used for colds, coughs, and headaches. However, many gardeners use it to deter insects in their gardens. Once the roots have taken hold in the soil, bugs are deterred from the area. Bird's Foot Violet blooms in two different colors. It grows well in areas that see a lot of shade, as too much sun can actually kill it easily. It will also grow well in places where other plants will die, such as rocky soil and dry patches of dirt.
Who doesn't love the simple yet beautiful daisy flower? The daisy is a flowering perennial that will work well for ground cover and as a preferred garden plant. The Shasta daisy looks very close to what we see along the side of the road except for the larger blooms. They can clump in large groups that reach from 1 to 2 feet wide and 2 to 3 feet tall. The Shasta daisy is very low maintenance and will self-seed. While they will grow in most conditions, this perennial will do better in full-sun conditions and well-drained soil. This flower is often turned into an herb to be used for fevers, liver disorders, and various aches and pains.
The Foam Flower is often used as a ground cover as it tends to spread very quickly. The blossoms of the plant turn white with just a slight pinkish tinge when it blooms, usually in May. The leaves then clump together to form different patterns and shapes. Foam flowers will do well if planted in well-drained soils and can tolerate partial and full shade. They let off a sweet fragrance that will attract birds and small animals. They can also be used as an essential oil. The leaves are often used as a diuretic, and the crushed foliage has been used to treat wounds.
