Plants Everyone Should Grow in a Mobile Home Garden

A mobile home without a garden is naked. In fact, planting beautiful plants around your house is one way to make it an oasis from the stresses of everyday life. At the very least it will get you outside and reconnected with nature. If you feel overwhelmed with all of the flora options, you aren’t alone. Luckily, we make it easy for you! We feature 3 different kinds of plants and 5 unique subtypes. Shrubs, grasses, and flowers are all great ways to liven up the landscape and create a gorgeous mobile home garden. Even better, all of these are easy to maintain and will grow in a ton of different locations.

Shrubs

Shrubs are great, low maintenance plants to place around your mobile home. Try adding some depth to your landscape by planting different sizes and colors. Although there are hundreds or thousands of different types of shrubs, the following are our top 5 recommendations.

#1. Evergreen shrubs

Evergreen shrubs are awesome. They are almost impossible to kill, and come in a variety of sizes. Evergreens produce color year round, so they won’t lose their leaves no matter what time of the year. Usually they come in a wide variety of greens. However, you can find some in gorgeous blues. You can even find evergreens that will grow in many different climates. Just do your research. The best part about this type of plant is the coverage offered. You can plant evergreens in a row to cover your mobile home like a fence. Or, you can plant just a couple in strategic places. Two that we love are the dwarf globe blue spruce and dwarf Norway spruce.

#2. Stewartstonian Azalea

Although most of us have heard of azaleas, the majority of us have not heard of stewartsonian azaleas. That is a shame, because they are absolutely gorgeous when planted around a mobile home. The leaves on this shrub stay on the plant year round. Not all azaleas can boast this awesome perk. In the fall, they even transform color so they do not look like an eyesore in your otherwise changing garden. In the spring, you will be impressed by the gorgeous display of flowers.

#3. Oakleaf Hydrangea

The oakleaf hydrangea is another shrub that will look great in your mobile home garden year around. In the summer, beautiful scented flowers will bloom. In the fall, the foliage changes to a deep red. The rest of the year this plant shows off its peeling bark. This looks absolutely gorgeous in the wintertime snow around your mobile home. Another benefit of this hydrangea is the low maintenance.

Grasses

Grasses are a beautiful addition to any garden, whether mobile home or not! We love ornamental grasses! They come in a variety of different colors, sizes, growth abilities, and more. You can literally have it the way you want it. These plants require little maintenance and will knock your neighbor’s socks off!

#1. Elijah Blue Fescue

All mobile home gardens could use some Elijah blue fescue. This gorgeous patch of grass can be found naturally in grasslands. The color is a blue/green wave of beauty that will give an element of pop to your landscape. Elijah blue fescue is no fuss, deer resistant, attracts birds, and looks great in the wintertime. They should be planted in full sun for the brightest color.

#2. Blue Lyme Grass

Continuing with the color scheme, the next ornamental grass is blue lyme grass. Although blue, it is not nearly the same shade as the Elijah blue fescue. It can be described more like a silver-blue. So don’t worry about the two looking too similar in your mobile home garden. Another difference is summertime foliage. Blue lyme grass makes plumes that look similar to wheat. If you are looking for a large spot to fill, this plant gets to 2 feet tall and 3 feet wide. Additionally, it is very heat tolerant so desert usage is allowed!

#3. Fountain Grass

Fountain grass is a very popular grass used throughout mobile home gardens everywhere. It is low maintenance, brawny, and dependable. The leaves are about half an inch and shiny green. In the Fall, they change color to golden yellow. In the summer, they grow spikes of beautiful flowers. Line them up along your mobile home edge for a stunning floral explosion. They get 2 to 3 feet tall and wide, and need full sun.

Flowers

Flowers are the classic go-to for mobile home gardens. Who doesn’t love flowers? There are so many varieties, colors, and smells that it can be difficult to make a good choice. However, there are 3 flowers that can be counted on: dwarf lilacs, hostas, and lavender. All are hardy, and all will make your mobile home stand out!

#1. Dwarf Lilacs

The smell of lilacs is something that cannot be denied. However, traditional lilac bushes tend to get wild and can get huge. The regular flowering plant gets between 6 and 15 feet, whereas dwarf lilacs only grow to 4 or 5 feet. This makes them easy to manage, and fit in a porch container on your mobile home’s porch. There are a few different kinds: Korean dwarf lilac, tinkerbelle, and josee.

#2. Hostas

Hostas are a classic leafy green flowering plant. They are pretty, easy to take care of, and come in a huge variety. There are greens, yellows, solids, stripes, and everything in between. In fact, most hostas are edible! If you plant them in a shady part of your mobile home garden, the foliage will thrive. When planted in a sunny area, the flowers will take priority. That means there is literally no way you can mess up hostas.

#3. Lavender

Lavender is a beautiful purple flowering plant. In addition, the smell is great! Lavender can liven up any mobile home garden. You can use it as edging or as a stand-alone. Just remember they grow to between 2 and 3 feet.
