Cheerful yellow bidens, red-yellow lantana, and a tiny red Ricinus (castor bean).
I love purple and black plants: The heliotrope, with ornamental black Pepper "The Pearl" and blue bacopa.
My north bed has lots of different-colored hostas, white and pink fernleaf bleeding hearts, lily-of-the-valley, and several different colors of Lamium, as well as one volunteer ostrich fern.
The rock garden has been roughly cleaned this spring, but needs a thorough going-over. In the bare spot near the foundation on the right, I am planting a Low-Grow Fragrant Sumac
This is my "I wish I had a pond, but I don't want the high maintenance" flower bed. I plant a variety of blue petunias: Ultra Blue, Ultra Sky blue, Daddy Blue, Ultra Blue Star, Hulahoop Blue and Celebrity Blue Ice, with white alyssum around the edge. When it fills out it goes to the bottom of the little boat--fake pond.
Tidal Wave Petunias (Purple and Silver). These petunias will fill up to past the top of the foundation, and several inches over the sidewalks.
I can't rmember the name of this lily. (my book is in the greenhouse).
I zoomed in on this lily, because each flower is only as large as the last joint of my thumb.
Henry Kelsey climbing rose.
John Davis climbing rose.
Iris Germanica-unknown name.
Pink Marshmallow fuchsia--I am told it is the largest fuchsia flower.
And finally, a sweet, aromatic different kind of "Flower".
I hope you enjoyed this little peek.
