There’s a type of phlox for nearly every site and almost any gardener's preference. Woodland phlox does well in shady, moist woods, while spotted phlox thrives in full sun and well-drained soil. Creeping and moss phlox make excellent ground covers. Creeping phlox likes moist soil and grows in the sun or shade, though it finds partial shade ideal. Moss phlox need the site to be a bit drier and in full sun. Some kinds of phlox are annuals while others are perennials.

Hummingbird Vine, or Trumpet Vine, proliferate into an impressive vine with gorgeous clusters of red, yellow or orange tubular, trumpet-shaped flowers. Hummingbirds LOVE these flowers! The image of a hummingbird sipping nectar from a trumpet vine flower can be found in paintings and on decorative plates and other items. The vine is usually planted where it will receive support, such as a pole, trellis or fence. If planted unsupported, it will grow into a shrub. This vine has an extended blooming period, continuing all through the summer and into the fall. Attractive bean-like seedpods follow the flowers. This vine is a long-lived perennial, seldom requiring more than an occasional watering in a dry spell. No fertilization is necessary. Severely pruning the plant in the spring or fall will keep the vine to the desired size or shape. This vine is not susceptible to winter damage. Clippings of flowering branches make lovely bouquets. As is true of many grapes, it is not recommended that they are planted under trees or next to buildings.

Its botanical name is Iris versicolor. The Blue Flag Iris often fails to bloom in the light shade. Although this plant will tolerate patches of dry weather, they prefer to be in moist conditions. They will have the best results in the highly organic soil. The plant must create its large roots before it can bloom. The height at maturity is 24-36 inches tall. Ideal regions for this plant are Northeast, Pacific Northwest, Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, and West. This robust plant adapts well to the home garden and is very easy to grow.

Flower Form: The daffodil is one of the first flowers to bloom in the spring. The traditional form of the daffodil is a flower made of pale yellow petals surrounding a somewhat darker trumpet, though there are now variations on that general color scheme. Some daffodils now have pure white leaves surrounding lemon yellow or even orange horns. The rule of thumb is to plant the bulbs twice as thick as they are tall and plant them three inches apart. After the sword-shaped leaves start to die back, some people leave the bulbs in the ground. Others dig them up and keep them in onion bags in a calm and dry place till they're ready to be planted in the fall. Daffodils are deer-resistant.
