Although the blooms peak in spring and summer, the vine often produces blooms throughout the year. Mexican Flame Vine is great for adding color to an unsightly fence or to crawl up a trellis.

Coleus

Coleus is ideal for anyone who wants color in a hurry, whether in the garden, patio or house. There is no need to wait for the bloom on this plant because the color is in the beautiful, showy foliage. Coleus colors can range from red, green, purple or violet. It is a versatile and a vigorous plant that can be grown year round. It adjusts beautifully to life in pots, planters, flower beds or borders. The 'Kong' varieties are great for shady areas. Many growers will often pinch the non-showy blooms off to redirect the plants energy to the attractive foliage.

Apples

Did you know that apples are the most widely adapted deciduous fruit tree in the United States? They need full sun for optimal development and typically will not grow in the tropical south because there are not enough chilling hours to satisfy the requirements of the plant. Hardy from zones 4-8, apples have a high wind tolerance and prefer a well-drained soil. Use apple trees as mass plants, shade plants or even as specimen plants.
