Top 10 Plants You Can’t Kill

Tough as nails, but they're pretty, too. Turn your black thumb into a green thumb with our picks for the top 10 plants you can't kill.

As gardeners, we’re constantly faced with challenges: plants that won’t bloom, flowers that die from a late frost, droughts that wipe out entire beds.

Gardening definitely has its fair share of difficulties, so every once in a while it’s nice to have plants that require little maintenance. Even better-grow plants you can’t kill!

Sure, spraying these all-stars with weed killer would probably lead to their demise. But for the most part, these are hardy, maintenance-free picks that work well in any North American backyard.

So are you ready to turn your black thumb into a green thumb? Get planting with these top picks for plants you can’t kill.

 

Petunia

(Petunia x hybrida)

Petunias have been around for decades, but the newer varieties have advanced in leaps and bounds. Days of deadheading and disease-prone plants are long gone. Nowadays, these beauties flourish in both full sun and partial shade without a lot of extra work. And you can find them in almost every color imaginable.

Why we love it: Even if you forget to water for a few days-it happens to everyone-these plants keep going.
