Creeping Jenny

For a lush evergreen plant with small gold or green leaves in a profusion of charming appeal, you can’t go wrong adding a creeping jenny to your landscape. Creeping jenny is ideal as a quick-growing ground cover and to create a cascading spillage of bright, small rounded leaves over walls, rocks, and even decorative pots. It is the right plant to provide irresistible classic villa appeal.


If you want one of the fastest growers in The Sunshine State, marigolds may be perfect for you. They are annual plants that come in a range of colors, including yellow, red, cream, orange, and maroon. The flowers, accompanied by herbaceous green foliage, can grow from 6 inches to 4 feet and a width of 6 inches to 3 feet. With marigolds, you can enjoy an abundance of blooms all the way from summer through autumn.

Dwarf Snapdragons

Dwarf snapdragons are also quick-growing annuals that thrive in Florida. Color options include yellow, red, maroon, and orange. Lighter flower blooms are surrounded by light green foliage while the darker blossoms have reddish stems. Once dwarf snapdragons have lost the color intensity of their first bloom, which happens in April, cut them back for a rebloom. These full-sunlight-friendly flowers prefer moist soil and they are well-tolerant of loam, acid soil, clay, and sand. Their height is up to 15” and the width is 6” to 12”.


If a fast-growing perennial that can grow up to 3 feet tall sounds like a good option, choose a pentas plant. The plant produces an abundance of clustered blooms that attract butterflies. The foliage is semi-evergreen and has tiny hairs. The flowers come in lavender, red, pink, or white hues. Pentas plants bloom throughout the months of spring and summer.

Coral Honeysuckle

Vibrant blooms and pleasant scents can multiply rapidly in your yard if you plant coral honeysuckle, a perennial vine with flowers in shades of coral pink. If you want to create a picturesque trellis with up to 15 feet of flowers and foliage within one season, look no further than coral honeysuckle. Hummingbirds will share in your delight.
