5 Go-to Plants for Curb Appeal

Your home garden and front lawn is the heart of your home’s curb appeal. Here are our five go-to plants that will add color, pizzazz and dimension to the exterior of your home.


A fairly low-maintenance plant, the rhododendron bush is attractive because of its pretty pink, orange, purple, and white colors. It is also one of the easiest, most rewarding flowering shrubs you’ll find if your garden is sunny to partly shaded.

According to Better Homes & Gardens, the hosta plant is one of the most commonly grown shade garden plants. Also called plantain lilies, these plants have a diverse offering of foliage shapes, colors, and sizes. We love the hosta plant because it’s perennial and has a great fragrance.


With lavender, you can add a stunning look to your existing borders and hedges. With its beautiful purple color and attractive fragrance, lavender is ideal for floral arrangements, potpourri and even in the kitchen.


If you’re going for a polished look, consider the boxwood. It’s versatile and in the winter the shrub has a rich green color. Boxwood can be used as hedges and even dividers among other flower beds in your garden or lawn.


Ranging in color from blue, green, pink, purple, white and even red, hydrangea can flourish in the sun or the shade, making it the perfect plant to use to amp up your curb appeal. Since there are so many varieties of hydrangea, do your research to find the perfect one for your home.
