The Best Flowers for Landscapers
If you’re looking for impressive color in sunny or shade-filled landscapes, consider bringing together some of these low-fuss flowers.
 
SHADE:
 
Impatiens
Series like Beacon® Impatiens walleriana offer season-long color in shade-filled landscape areas where resilience is needed. Beacon is an easy-care, fast-filling plant with bold blooms that bring lasting color to the shade. The best part about Beacon is it’s high resistance to Impatiens downy mildew, which makes it a landscaper’s #1 choice.
 
Heuchera (Coral Bells)
Shade-to-part-sun performers bring intense colors in hues of purple, red, green and gold to the landscape. With pretty ruffled foliage, Melting Fire Heuchera is easy to grow and stands up to all weather.
 
Coleus
Shade superstars like Kong® and Kong Jr.™ feature huge leaves with vibrant colors that really make them stand out! Unique colors and textures cover large, shaded landscape areas and brighten up containers for easy placement and all-season excitement.
 
 
SUN:
 
Vinca
Tough-as-nails Valiant™ Vinca resists aerial phytophthora, a common garden disease, and stands up to sun, heat, drought, salt and cool or damp conditions, so it will thrive in almost any landscape area. With large, colorful blooms and easy maintenance, it is a winner all season long.
 
Coreopsis
A perennial favorite, Coreopsis brings delightful color to full-sun areas from Summer to Fall. And early varieties like Double the Sun provide bright, sunny yellow color and semi-double blooms 2 to 3 weeks earlier than other Coreopsis, with easy care and no soil restrictions.
 
Dianthus
Available in multiple varieties, there’s a perfect dianthus for nearly every garden landscape. Highly durable Jolt™ Dianthus is an excellent landscape product with few disease issues and 50 mph color. It has abundant flowers and is long blooming for a colorful show all Summer long. Once planted, it needs little care to put on an impressive display.
 
Rudbeckia (Black-Eyed Susan)
These drought-tolerant flowers look bright and inviting even on the hottest days in late Summer, which makes them a great choice for the landscape, flowering into Fall. Black-eyed Susans will attract butterflies and only regular watering and some light deadheading to keep them looking fresh.
 
Viola
The first blooms out in Spring, Sorbet® XP violas perform well in sun and part shade. With a wide selection of colors and unique patterns, they create impressive designs and color striping effects in the landscape.
