I have a large patio which is in desperate need of greenery. The problem is, I am a plant killer. Yes, I admit it. I have slaughtered countless innocent varieties of vegetation. I do not have a green thumb [hangs head in shame]. My money tree is dying a slow death of white spots. My snow bush is now at the bottom of my trash can. My sunflowers have shriveled up to nothing. Well actually, I do not take responsibility for that one. I went back to the nursery where I bought them and their sunflowers were in the same sad shape as mine. I do believe they were destined to die. Surprisingly, my ficus is doing ok, despite a branch being torn off during transportation. I have "color bowls" full of beautiful flowers and they seem to be doing ok. For now. Ask me in another week. What hardy plants do well on patios? I get lots of strong sunlight back there, although if I put them by the fence, they do get partial shade. I want dense, lush foliage. I want bursts of color. I WANT PLANTS! Indestructible plants that can survive my lack of horticultural nurturing instincts. Any suggestions would be most welcomed!
