Lowcountry Plants

Under cover of a handful of oaks, self-taught gardener Tommy Peters creates a cool garden hideaway

Feeling cooped up? Don’t despair. Bring the outdoors in with these easy-to-grow ferns. And they’ll transfer nicely to your yard come spring

Considering a citrus tree? Check out this lush evergreen. Kumquats fare well in the Lowcountry and produce a bounty of petite fruit that pack a punch of flavor

Do your outdoor spaces need a quick lift? Geraniums come in a rainbow of colors and a variety of scents that can enliven any sunny spot

Plant a different kind of hibiscus, one that loves the Lowcountry swelter and can add zest to a summer salad

Make a bold statement in containers or garden beds with a variety of no-fuss, no-muss, water-saving succulents

Blanket your garden in Helianthus debilis for an ocean of cheery blooms

Thanks to an enterprising young woman, the Lowcountry enjoyed a short but lucrative stint exporting Indigofera tinctoria—and the beautiful blue dye extracted from its leaves—before the plant all but disappeared from our fields.
