We Love Myrtle Beach! It’s like visiting a tropical island with all the conveniences and amenities of home. Palm trees, ocean breeze, and sunny skies invite us back year after year. While taking a stroll down Ocean Boulevard, we noticed a stunning garden near the Breakers Resort. A combination of Coleus, Croton, Salvia, and Sweet Potato Vines provide bright colors and contrasts! This display proves that you don’t need flowers to develop a gorgeous display. All of the plants shown in this video have color, interest, and texture in the leaves.
For beginner gardeners, you may have a problem with deer because Coleus, Croton, Salvia, and Sweet Potato vines don’t have much of a fragrance. Deer like plants with minimal fragrance. If the deer do become a problem, use an excellent deer repellent such as Bobbex Deer Repellent 32 oz. Ready To Use Spray – B550110.
This combination of Coleus, Croton, Salvia, and Sweet Potato Vines produce a very easy maintenance garden! The only pruning would be the Salvia flowers after they bloom. If you would prefer minimal maintenance, don’t plant the Salvia.
Check your local Home Depot, Lowe’s, eBay or online Burpee Gardening for their selection of Coleus, Caladium, and Hibiscus plants!
