For My 100th Post - 100 of My Favorite Landscape Plants to Share

It took me three years to get to record my 50th post and just a little over two months to write my next 50!  I have to admit there was an Activerain challenge among members involved and I simply can't reisist a challenge!! Anyway... for my 50th post, I shared with you the 50 Things I Have No Regrets About.  It was a little harder to come up with a blog idea having to do with 100 things.  As I mentioned in my blog last week, Most of My Education I Received After College, while my kids were young and I was a stay-at-home mom, I took lots of Horticulture classes. Three of them had to do with plant identification which made me open up my eyes and see the beauty of plant life, in not only their flower or leaf color, but leaf shape, texture, and size along with the plant's overall structure.  

Here are 100 of my favorite landscape plants that all grow well in El Dorado Hills and the Sacramento Region in general.  There is no order as to the my preference.  Most of the names are the common name or the botanical family name. (I tried to list them the way, I have heard them called most often.)  With many of them, I am partial to several varieties and it was hard to limit to 100 so I just listed the family name.
