Pugh’s Earthworks Landscapes

Memphis Landscaping

Memphis Tennessee is the largest city located directly on the shores of the mighty Mississippi River. It has a climate that is defined as humid and subtropical which makes it a good place for a wide variety of plants. The expert landscapers at Pugh’s Earthworks know the exact type of plant that will acclimate well in Memphis. Below are some of the best native plants and flowers that will make any landscaped garden in Memphis beautiful.

Sedums –  These perennials have lovely foliage and star -shaped flowers. They come in two basic sizes, tall and short.  Growing to heights of three feet, the tall sedums have lush leaves and lovely flowers. The short sedums are more of a ground cover.

Day-lilies –  Very tolerant to many types of soil these flowers do well in the Memphis soil. They are perennials and can be used as a border plants or mixed in with our garden plants.

Butterfly Pea – Butterfly peas are kind of rare and unique to the Tennessee environment. They have lavender flowers that resemble the wings of a butterfly. These make very manageable garden vines and grow to about three feet tall.

Goatsbeard – This perennial plant is actually related to the rose family. Often they are found growing in the wild and gardeners will transplant them into their gardens. They do grow to be rather large about six feet tall. Bearing flowers they make perfect border plants for sidewalks and driveways.

Foxglove Beardtongue – These  native Memphis plants are easy to grow in gardens. During May and June they display sweet smelling white flowers that attract bees, hummingbirds, and songbirds.
