    Huacatay

    With its dark green leaves and stems, Huacatay is an eye-catching annual plant that will enrich any garden. Originating from the Andes Mountains of South America, huacatay is more commonly known in the U.S. as “black mint.” However, huacatay actually belongs to the marigold family. Huacatay typically blooms between late summer and early fall, producing tiny yellow or green flowers. 

    This annual plant is generally easy to grow, even for beginner gardeners. Drought-tolerant huacatay grows well in sunny locations and well-draining soil. It is ideal for both container gardens and garden beds. 

    Its leaves have a unique aroma and flavor, making them a popular ingredient in many Peruvian dishes. Additionally, the plant has medicinal properties and is used by some to treat stomach and respiratory ailments. It is also a natural insect repellent.

    A staple in Mexican, Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines, cilantro is a versatile herb that can be used fresh or dried. Note that the leaves are called “cilantro,” while the seeds are referred to as “coriander.” 

    With their fresh, citrusy flavor, cilantro leaves can be used as a seasoning or an ingredient in various dishes such as salsas, guacamole, and sauces. Beyond its culinary applications, cilantro is also well-known for its potential health benefits. Many people take cilantro to promote digestion and reduce inflammation.

    Cilantro thrives in well-drained soil under full sun. Regular watering is essential, and it's recommended to harvest leaves frequently to encourage new growth.

This stunning annual can grow up to two feet tall and is perfect for adding a pop of color to your garden. The vibrant red bracts can be used in dried flower arrangements due to their long-lasting nature. 

    This low-maintenance plant can tolerate heat and poor soil conditions. Plant seeds directly in the garden after the danger of frost has passed, and water regularly to encourage blooming throughout the season.

    A popular choice among annuals, the "Jewel Mix" nasturtium is an eye-catching plant that brings a delightful mix of brilliant colors to your garden. With its vibrant red, orange, and yellow flowers, “Jewel Mix” nasturtium blooms from the summer till the first frost. The plant's rounded leaves offer an appealing contrast to its bold flowers.

    Nasturtiums prefer full to partial sunlight and well-drained soil. Water them regularly, ensuring the soil stays moist but not overly saturated.

    Nasturtiums are relatively low-maintenance, making them perfect for beginner gardeners or those with busy schedules.
