6 Plants that Will Grow Anywhere?

Do you have a black thumb and limited space for a garden like me? If so, you need to look to this Daily Green article. It's got six plants that even the gardening-inept can handle.

1. While herbs need sun, parsley and mint can handle partial shade.
2. Cherry tomatoes need a sunny spot, a whiskey barrel-sized container and a five-foot support.
3. Dwarf evergreens require much less labor than bonsai trees. Keep them out of direct sunlight.
4. Coreopsis, a sun-loving perennial for a window box.
5. Coral bells do best in partial shade.
6. Sedum is a drought-resistant and overall trouble-free plant.

Please keep in mind, these plants aren't miracle workers and they need to be watered regularly.

I have always been able to grow dandelions, crabgrass, clover and a multitude of other things that could survive, drought, flood, sun, shade and weed killer.

PS I am able to grow lots of vegetables. But as soon as they start to ripen whether its cucumbers, tomatoes, green peppers, sunflowers, squash, melons, strawberries and even jalapenos the squirrels eat them.

And they are smart little creatures.

Nothing tricks them twice and nothing scares them enough to stay away.

Agree on the sedum -- we have it under a large tree that hogs the water supply, with only afternoon sun and it is as large as a medium sized shrub. Great fall color!
