10 Best Low-Maintenance Plants for Your Garden

If you’re looking to plant a garden that requires little to no maintenance — luckily, not every plant requires the greenest head knowledge or hours to apply the right amount of water, fertiliser or attention. A well crafted landscaping design is one that grows with you throughout the seasons and in spite of the ever-changing Australian climate. A low-maintenance garden starts by choosing the right plants. If you’re looking to ‘plant-and-forget’ and spend less time working on the garden, here are top 10 low-maintenance plants.

1. Lomandra Lime Tuff (Lomandra longifolia)
2. Blue Bugle (Ajuga reptans)
3. Blue Chalk (Senecio serpens)
4. Coral Bells (Heuchera)
5. Chinese Fringe Flower (Loropetalum)
6. Creeping Boobialla (Myoporum parvifolium)
7. Indian hawthorn (Rhaphiolepis indica)
8. Limonium perezii blue (Perennial statice)
9. Native Violet (Viola hederacea)
10. Birthday Candles (Banksia spinulosa)
