Hello, my name is Nicholas Staddon. I'm with Monrovia and today I'm going to talk to you about inexpensive small scale landscaping flower ideas and there's a cornucopia of things that we could talk about today but our time is limited so we're going to cover something very special. You might have a small back garden. You might just have room for a few containers, you might be on a limited budget but there's lots you can do. It's time you got your hands in the dirt. So a few ideas, rosemaries, great easy growers. They love to be in a container or a forward border plant, great green foliage, stunning fragrance and blue flowers. Two Sedums and Sedums will have small white flowers. This is one called Red Carpet and Angelina, one is red, one is gold. One of my favorite perennials called Fanfare. Fanfare is a hummingbird magnet, does beautifully in the border or in a container. It has these great tubular flowers that will get maybe 15 inches high, 20 inches across and gets covered with flowers all season long. A highly unusual Agapanthus called Gold Stripe. Look at this fantastic variegation and in the Summer months has beautiful tall flowers with a large blue umbell on top, gorgeous. Lavenders, if you're into gardens you've got to have a lavender. You can harvest the blooms and bring them indoors. One of my favorite plants. One of my favorite plants is Melianthus Antenhaus Blue. It's a little prehistoric. Look at this great serrated foliage. The plant will get actually two to three feet high and then during the Summer months has a red flower that's about that tall that has a fragrance of honey and just when you think you've got it all down pat, there is this great Cordyline called Festival Burgundy and this makes a centerpiece in any garden. The plant will get about three feet high and the same across and what you see is what you get and she will have a flower at about two or three years old. This is NIchola Staddon from Monrovia with inexpensive small scale landscaping flowering ideas for your garden or containers.
