Whether you’re looking to sell your home or just want to make it stand out on the block, the right plants can make a big difference. Our planting service can recommend the best plants for your space and your landscaping goals. But for a simple way to boost your curb appeal, consider adding these:
Rhododendron is a favorite for showy spring flowers and glossy green leaves; shorter varieties require less maintenance pruning to stay in check. ‘Yaku Prince’ blooms with funnel-shaped pink flowers and grows to 3 feet high and wide with olive-green leaves
Littleleaf boxwood. Among the more compact boxwoods, ‘Green Velvet’ has pale green leaves and a mounding habit that can grow to 4 feet high and wide.
Japanese Pieris. Dense habit with branches that reach to the ground. This plant has leathery, dark green leaves with bell-like white flowers in spring.
Inkberry. Look for slow-growing ‘Compacta,’ which has dark green leaves and a rounded shape, and grows to 4 feet high and 6 feet wide.
Japanese Yew. These are the shorter, slower-growing cultivars that are easiest to keep in check. Look for plants with dark needles with red berries in winter.
