Love these plants for the front planter box - create a sense of privacy at the front door. Shade loving container gardening, planters for front porch, ferns, hydrangea and sweet potato vine. Gorgeous and welcoming.
Eastern Redbud (Cercis canadensis) Though tolerant of winter cold, the redbud likes the warm summers of its native Appalachian habitat. Its rosy-magenta spring flowers, heart-shaped leaves, and compact form translate well to suburban settings.
