What plants do best on Cape Cod? At Hyannis Country Garden we recognize that some aspects of gardening on the Cape are different from other locations. Our predominantly sandy soils, off-ocean winds, and salt spray can influence local landscapes and how we tend them. Country Garden’s customers frequently request our “insider information” about the plants and products that work especially well in this area. With these appeals in mind, we’ve created our Best for Cape Cod designation.

Note that many of the selections on the Native Plants list support pollinators and other wildlife.
