Who doesn't want to have a beautiful garden, particularly one that doesn't require a whole lot of work? One of the keys to having a truly successful garden lies in choosing no-fail plants. Now keep in mind that no plant is truly fail proof, as each will require at least a modicum amount of care on your part. When I say no-fail plants I actually mean plants that will thrive in your garden, and seem to flourish with little or seemingly no care on your part.
To be able to begin choosing no-fail plants, you will need to first know your area. This means that you know what the average temperature, rainfall, soil type, and all the other little details that make up the region of the world that you live in. To make the task of choosing no-fail plants a little easier, here is a list of some of the general areas of the United States, and some of the plants that will work best in them. Use this list as a starting point, and utilize it to help you plan your perfect "no-fail" garden.
