I chose pink azaleas as the easiest and prettiest flowering bushes for strategic places around my yard. Along the fenced area facing the street planted in between trees on my side of the fence. Planted right near the gated entrance so you see bright pink blooms right when you drive in. Under the windows in front of the house are also bright pink azaleas, yellow trumpet bushes and rose bushes and bright red amarillas that bloom in the winter. You can also plant Easter Lillies here in Florida when someone brings you one for Easter. Easter lillies will die back right after you plant them but the bulbs will come back the following year and be multiplied. We also plant our gifted Poinsettias near the house as they will grow larger when properly cared for. They can't be in high winds though because the branches are quite soft and bend easily...you may have to brace them with stakes when you first plant them. Poinsettias need to be in a quiet area where they won't be disturbed by animals or wind. Another favorite plant that is easy to grow in Florida are gardenias. I started off with very small bushes and they are now 4 to 6 feet tall and very bushy. The better you fertilize and take care of them the larger they will get. Gardenias are usually planted with plenty of room to spread out and near an area where people walk so they can enjoy the lovely fragrance of the blooms.
Happy Gardener living in Florida
