If the summertime makes you feel a little lazy then you need a plant that doesn't require a lot of work. If you don't want to have to go out and prune off all the dead blooms from your plants, then you need a plant that takes care of its own blooms. There are a lot of plants you don't have the deadhead. One is called a Supertunia - which is a trade name. The plant is a vegetative Petunia that has long runners which can grow up to three to five feet long. Flowers will bloom all along those stretching stems, and when the blooms are finished, the plant gets rid of them itself. Supertunias come in a lot of different colors and typically bloom all summer long. Planting some of these will keep your garden beautiful, but will keep your gardening workload light.
