Exclusive to High Country Gardens, our Summer Showstopper Pre-Planned Garden will have the neighbors stopping by to admire your yard. Designed to provide low-maintenance, season-long color, it’s ideal for difficult planting sites. Plant it in your hellstrips (or parking strip) between the street and sidewalk, edging front walks, or add a band of flowers to the south or west sides of your garage or home. It includes a mix of North American native plants as well as plants from around the world that thrive in hot, dry climates. Plants grow to less than 3 feet tall, so they will not block the view of driveways or traffic.

The flowers in Summer Showstopper Pre-Planned Garden covers 48 sq ft (6 ft x 8 ft). It includes a garden map, care and planting instructions, and 17 plants:

Not recommended for coastal areas of Oregon, Washington, or California, as the Valerian (Centranthus) can behave aggressively there.

For best results, we recommend planting with Yum Yum Mix and Root Stimulator Combo Pack.

Plants are subject to change due to availability. Any substitutions will feature plants with similar attributes suitable to the garden design. Not all plants will be in bloom at the same time, as may be depicted in the artist’s rendering.
