Alpine Violet – Every gardeners loves violets! Alpine Violets prefer moist, well-drained soil and sun to partial shade. From April to June, two to four flowering stalks emerge bearing pale blue to purple flowers.
Beebalm– Beebalms are an easy plant to grow, even for novice gardeners. Their flower color ranges from maroon to pale pink, violet-blue or flaming scarlet. It’s best to use Beebalm in perennial borders, wildflower gardens, herb gardens, butterfly, and hummingbird gardens or woodland gardens.
Crimson-eyed Rose Mallow– These flowers are large, up to six inches across, with five pinkish-white petals and a crimson throat. They can even grow up to six feet tall! Crimson-eyed Rose Mallow makes a dramatic statement when planted next to ponds or lakes, or in low spots where water drains.
Orange Jewelweed– You may have never heard of an Orange Jewelweed, but they’re quite gorgeous. They are orange to orange-yellow, one-inch long and shaped like a cornucopia. The base of the flower has a tiny nectar spur that curls downward. They’re best in shaded, moist sites for vibrant color from early summer until frost.
Pink Turtlehead– This flower is named so because they resemble the heads of open-mouthed turtles. In late August, pink to rose-purple tubular flowers bloom. They grow best in shady spots, perhaps under a large tree.
Chinese Fan Palm Tree– Even though Georgia state is not as warm as Florida, hardy palm trees will grow here. The Chinese Fan Palm Tree does well, even during our winters. In fact, you can keep it in a pot and bring it indoors to be used as a houseplant when you desire.
