A plant pro reveals his top 5 picks.
At this time of year, many of us are starting to spruce up our homes for the season, both inside and out. Besides bringing flowers and fresh foliage to the front yard, the warmer weather also means more visitors stopping by. To make sure your front yard is making the best possible first impression, you’ll want to start with some wow-worthy outdoor plants. To find out which varieties are the most show-topping (and the easiest to care for), we reached out to Justin Hancock, a horticulturist at Costa Farms, for his top 5 picks. Plant these gorgeous, colorful plants this spring and watch how they instantly update your home’s curb appeal.
