Outdoor plants may be more likely to be hardy than indoor plants. This is normal since they are exposed to more variable and natural weather conditions. They have all the light and fresh air they need. However, when you don’t have a green thumb, it can be difficult to keep a plant alive whether indoors or not.

4) honeysuckle

Honeysuckle is appreciated for its scent reminiscent of the gentle morning dew. It grows fast and it is very easy to cultivate. Its flowering is at its peak in February when the weather is milder. It is therefore a particularly hardy plant. The ideal exposure is full sun for best flowering, but it doesn’t mind partial shade.
