8 Foundation Plants to Boost Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Want to elevate your home’s curb appeal? The secret lies in foundation plants—trees, shrubs, grasses, and ground covers that frame your home and create a lush landscape. Here are eight top picks to enhance your yard:

  1. Boxwood

Boxwoods are hardy, classic, and versatile. They form a dense backdrop for other plants and can be shaped to fit your landscape design.

  1. Azalea

Azaleas are known for their vibrant blooms that come in various colors. They start blooming in spring and some varieties continue through summer and fall.

  1. Spirea

Spirea is easy to grow, pest-resistant, and offers a long bloom time. This fast-growing shrub adds beauty without much hassle.

  1. Salvia

Salvia, resembling lavender, brings bright color and attracts pollinators like hummingbirds and butterflies, making it a lovely addition to your garden.

  1. Fescue

Fescue is a low-growing, shade-tolerant grass that adds a lush, green backdrop under taller plants, creating a whimsical, Seussian landscape.

  1. Catmint

Catmint boasts vibrant flowers and is drought-tolerant, making it perfect for low-maintenance gardens. Its pollinator-friendly nature adds extra appeal.

  1. Hosta

Hostas thrive in the shade and come in hundreds of varieties, offering diverse colors, textures, and sizes to fit any landscape.

  1. Panicle Hydrangea

Panicle hydrangeas are easy to grow and produce bold, beautiful blooms annually, making them a standout choice for enhancing curb appeal.

This is good information to share as many of us are considering additional plants for our yards and gardens. Our azaleas are blooming.

A couple of years ago, I discovered a baby fawn hidden in the hosta plants.
