50 High-Impact, Low-Care Garden Plants

Snow is still on the ground but gardening is blooming in my heart.   The month of March finds seed catalogs, gardening books, and over wintered herbs strewn all over my kitchen and dining room.  The need is for spring!

My favorite gardening books for Ohio are authored by Tracy Disabato-Aust. Every spring I start a plant list for my garden from Tracy’s book, 50 High-Impact Low Care Garden Plants.  The book has a little bit of everything from grasses to shrubs, but all are Ohio hardy and easy care.  My favorite stand out plants are Bear’s Breeches, Variegated Aralia, Blue False Indigo, Bleeding Heart, and Hellebore.  The Dragon's Eye Pine made the list this year but where to plant, the garden is getting full!
