Container Plants That Don’t Need Deadheading

By: Garden Gate staff
These low-maintenance plants are perfect for containers because they keep looking good all season long. You don’t even have to deadhead!

Self-cleaning plants

When you have a container in a prominent spot, such as near the front door or on the patio, you want to make sure it always looks good. So choose plants that keep themselves looking their best with minimal effort from you. Self-cleaning plants are the best choice. That’s because they don’t require deadheading to remove spent flowers — petals just fall off. While it’s not necessary, occasional snipping back still helps them rebloom and tidies the plant if you want instant good looks. So which plants are self cleaners? Click through the slideshow below for some of the best!
