Hello and Welcome to FlowerChick.com!

My friends and family gave me the nickname “Flower Chick” about 15 years ago since I love to garden and became the “go to” person for gardening advice and plant suggestions. I live in the Chicago area which is considered Zone 5 – 6 on the USDA plant hardiness chart – so Zone 5 & 6 are my specialty!

On this site I’ll show you some of my favorite plants and offer care tips. I prefer “lower maintenance” flowers and shrubs since I work full-time and don’t want to be a slave to my garden. Digging in the soil, planting, and the thrill of a new bloom are all very therapeutic for me, but I don’t want to spend my whole weekend toiling in the yard.

I’ll show you my personal easy care favorites for Zone 5 & 6. Gardening is one of the most satisfying and rewarding hobbies for all ages and skill levels.

Enjoy and thanks again for visiting!
