Gardening in the South

Lush flowers that can take the heat are just one of the benefits of gardening in the South. Start your Southern gardening journey with a tour of one color-packed country space that's tops in personality. If you want to fill your garden in every season, take a look at early-spring bloomers that help banish the gloom of winter. Come summertime, you're sure to turn to some of these no-fuss perennial charmers, plus native plants that are best suited for Southern gardens and flowers that are filled with amazing scents. In autumn, keep the color party going with stunning bloomers that shine as the growing season winds down. Most areas of the South also have a very hot spell; try some extra-tough plants that don't need lots of care to thrive. Lawns also need different care in the South than in other regions of the country; our calendar guides you from season to season. For Southern gardeners, fruit trees typically thrive in the warm climate; if you haven't grown your own fruit trees before, try some of these varieties.
