outdoor plants for Iowa City {put some roots down — or up}

Our customers have been raring to go with their spring planting since March. We can hardly blame them, with the atypically warm weather we had while it was technically still winter!

The planter on the right features a pink geranium with lantana along the edges.

Other reliable plants for this season are impatiens, begonias and pansies if you have shade. You might also try Boston ferns, sedum, ivy, or decorative grasses for texture and variety.
