Mother Nature. Mother Earth. Mom.
This Mother’s Day, we’re celebrating all of that we value and love in our mothers. We think some of the traits that are just so “Mom” are reflected in the beautiful plants we love to have in our gardens. We’ve also created a series of downloadable cards that you can print and give to Mom. (See example at right and then look for a download link at the bottom of each plant description!).
So, with that in mind, here are ten plants each with a distinct mom-like characteristic. Which one is most like your mother?
Perfectly yin-yang combo of tumbling waves of tender, deep-purple blooms with, just like a mom, protective “don’t mess with me” thorns. Purple Queen® Bougainvillea is an ideal privacy screen for fences or arbors. Evergreen. Zone: 10 – 11
