I'm tired of all the brown. I'm ready for some ahhh!
Little red daylilies
Aster ericoides and variegated sedum
Lantana, flax, and 'Piglet' pennisetum in the rain garden
'Abraham Darby' rose
Helianthus, 'Johnson's Blue' geraniums, and pink yarrow
White trumpet lilies
Drumstick aliums, 'Rocky Top' coneflowers, and orange milkweed grow alongside daylilies and agastache
I have coneflowers all over my garden.
This perennial bed runs from the dog run down to the rain garden. The rain garden is being expanded this spring to create a much greater curve into the grass.
Marguerites (anthemis 'Susanna Mitchell') grow in pots alongside Stella d'Oro daylilies, white petunias, and zinnias
Joe Pye Weed (eupatorium fistulosa)
My garden has many trees, including three crepe myrtles, and I've learned to garden in various degrees of shade. This spot is pretty sunny.
Spigellia marylandica, a native southeastern wildflower grows easily in well drained filtered shade.
Part of the back garden
Most of the plants in this bed were seedlings rescued from other parts of the garden. The grass path was redone in November 2012 and featured in my last post.
