1. Choosing one or a few varieties is better than planting many different
types. It's challenging to meet the diverse needs of a large variety,
and it also makes for a busy landscape.
2. In a large scale planting, use plants that have bigger leaves and cover
more area to avoid weed problems. In smaller areas use plants with smaller
leaves to avoid an overcrowded appearance.
3. It's less work if plants with similar cultural requirements (sun, water,
soil, etc.) are grouped together.
