Weeping Plants For Landscape Your Garden

Most of the plants grow upright, but there are some plants that grow to the ground and thus are known as weeping plants.

Weeping plants add to the year round interest in the garden with the unique growth habit, which offers contrast to upright plants. With no much effort you can have weeping plants in your garden to add to the beauty of the landscape.
