Eye-Catching Front Door Plants That Increase Curb Appeal

1. Begonia

This gorgeous flower may be grown year-round in hardiness zone 8 or warmer. In cooler climates, begonias must be grown as annuals. Begonias are great for their waxy leaves and brilliant flowers.

2. Bottlebrush

Like the other shrubs on this list, the bottlebrush shrub is tiny. This plant may grow at your front entrance if you have a big container since it can usually stay at 6 feet or less.

3. Boxwood

Flowers are essential for certain front-door plants. However, some gardeners see leaves and growth habit alone as attractive. This is arguably best shown by the boxwood shrub.

4. Butterfly Bush

The butterfly shrub attracts many beautiful butterflies during bloom. However, many butterfly bush kinds are quite invasive, so choose this one, which is bred not to spread.

5. Caladium

Not only does attractive foliage provide a continuous mass of luxuriant greenery. Instead, foliage may provide as many and vibrant hues as flowers.

6. Creeping Phlox

 Creeping phlox stands out among those many exceptional plants because it creeps over the ground and flowers so lavishly that your garden will seem like a carpet of white, pink, or purple.

7. Daylily

Daylilies, for instance, flourish with little attention. Due to its tall stalks and large-petaled blooms, daylilies are gorgeous.

8. Fountain Grass

Fountain grass has several names, but the one on our list is Pennisetum alopecuroides ‘Hameln.’ This fountain grass makes nice clusters approximately two feet tall and wide.

9. Geranium

Geraniums, often grown as annuals, are attractive container plants. Geraniums are popular because their flower clusters have appealing depth of color.

10. Giant Allium

Gian alliums are perennial blooming plants with a tall, thick, green stalk. A lovely globe-shaped cluster of blooms tops that long stem. All of the blossoms are stunning purple.
