Listed below are five plants that are among the best for any type of garden and any growing conditions you may have available to you. They’re beautiful, low-maintenance and will thrive no matter what kind of soil or sun you have available to work with. With these plants in your garden, every season will be a bountiful one!

Dischidia

 

There are few places you can add more color, texture and smell to your garden than with a Dischidia plant. The flowers themselves are usually small, but their prominent spider-like petals make up for their size. Their bushy appearance makes them great additions near entryways or at the front of a garden where they can be enjoyed when you first walk out onto your porch each morning. For added color, fill one container with yellow blooms and another with red blooms.

Pothos

What’s so great about Pothos? It’s one of those plants that are hard to kill and easy on your wallet. Pothos requires very little maintenance and can grow indoors, outdoors or even directly outside your kitchen window, where it will climb a trellis or siding and be easily accessible. As a flowering plant, pothos blooms year-round but can be pinched back for additional growth of shoots. The plant is easy to propagate from cuttings taken from mature stems. With proper care, pothos is known for its tolerance for low light conditions and varied temperatures, making it ideal for home indoor growing or directly outside under poor lighting conditions where most plants would fail.

philodendron

If you’re looking for a lush and beautiful plant but lack space, consider growing a philodendron. This jungle-like plant is easy to care for and has beautiful heart-shaped leaves. It’s best grown as an indoor houseplant and requires medium sunlight—it should be kept away from windows that get direct sunlight. Its soil needs to stay moist, so check it daily and water it when needed. Before getting a new philodendron, research its care requirements (here are tips from Texas A&M). If your plant starts losing leaves or seems sickly, consult an expert or take it back if you bought it at a store.

Betel Leaf plant

Betel Leaf (Piper betle) is a perennial plant that grows in many tropical climates, and looks similar to a tomato plant. It has bright red leaves with purple veins, and can be grown indoors or outdoors. The leaves are used for making chutneys, curries, pickles and mouth fresheners. One of its most well-known uses is as a wrapper for paan (betel nuts wrapped with spices), which is popular among people living in India, Sri Lanka and other Asian countries. The leaves have medicinal properties that provide relief from stress and fatigue. Betel leaf plants require lots of sunlight and moderate watering; however, their growth may be stunted if they’re overwatered.

ferns

Many gardeners do not take advantage of ferns for a few reasons. Ferns have an ancient appearance, and though they are appealing, many people are intimidated by them. They can be difficult to work with because you cannot prune some ferns like you can other plants. The leaves will die if you cut too much off, so pruning ferns is something that must be handled delicately. If done right, however, your garden will benefit from beautiful ferns that add life even when they are not in bloom.
