There are so many low maintenance plants that you should be able to find several for your landscape. One of the easiest plants to grow is the Kalanchoe family. Oops, got too rough with it and broke a leaf off? No problem. That leaf is going to fall to the ground and grow more plants for you. Another very low maintenance landscape plant for the front yard is the Arachis glabrata Golden Glory or Ornamental Peanut. You can plant this and forget it. No watering, fertilizing or mowing. Plant some in your grass for color during the spring and early summer.
Our low maintenance plant pages all have icons under the name of each plant. The first one tells you how the plant grows. Either a ground cover, large or small shrub, large or small tree, or a vine.
