Low To No Maintenance Flowers

Flower beds are a beautiful part of the warmer weather months. But, along with those warm days comes busy schedules. It can be so easy to forget about your flowers. 

When they don’t get watered and maintained daily, they die. That is why we came up with a list of the top low-maintenance flowers you can have. The first rule of thumb is to pick perennials. They require the least amount of work to maintain.

Butterfly Weed
