The Marguerite Daisy (Argyranthemum frutescens), native to the Canary Islands, is a terrific butterfly and pollinator attractor. The topiary prefers prefers full sun, though it will also tolerate partial sunlight, and well-drained soil. Take care to not overwater. Deadhead throughout the flowering season, which will last from mid-spring to mid-autumn, to promote new growth and fresh blooms. Zoned 7-11, the specimen will need to be wintered indoors.
Heliotrope (Heliotropium arborescens) are long bloomers that begin flowering in summer and offer up their fragrant bounty through the first frost. Grow in full sun and evenly moist soil and take care to remove flower clusters as they turn brown to encourage new blooms. They are heavy feeders in the garden, but in containers, they become voracious. Feed them every two weeks with a liquid fertilizer meant for flowering plants. Heliotrope, with its sweet vanilla-almond-cherry fragrance, is deer-resistant, but please note that it is toxic to children and pets. A tropical perennial in zones 10-11, the Heliotrope must be brought inside before the first frost.
The Flowering Maple, or Abutilon, showcases blooms which start out as small lantern-shaped buds that open to large, dangling, crepe paper-like cup-shaped flowers in various shades. These flowers are often used in leis in Hawaii. Irresistible to hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies, the Flowering Maple thrives in rich soil with full sunlight. The plant likes moist soil, never allowing it to become soggy or waterlogged. Pinch growing tips regularly to promote full, bushy growth and trim as needed to keep the plant neat. In the autumn, cut back branches carefully to shape and winter indoors.
