What to look for: The foundation planting of this Welcome, NC home makes us want to stop for a visit. The heavy clumps of variegated liriope form a strong line from the driveway, across the front of the house, and around the Crepe Myrtle tree on the far side.

Repeat-blooming Encore® azaleas front the house. They bloom in the spring and continue to bloom off and on until late fall. A Kousa dogwood and Crepe Myrtle greet visitors on either side of the walkway.
