Okay, put your shades on if you want to view this garden! Near the front entry I have a spot that I struggled with for several years. Half of it is in deep shade most of the day from the porch, and the other half is in hot sun most of the day. I wanted something bright that would lighten up the shade. Yowzie!! Did I do it or what???
The fence in the background covers up the hose reel, etc. My husband found these boards for free at the recycle yard and I gave them a little white wash. I decided I wanted to have some more heucheras, so they are the mainstay of this area. Plantings in this garden include: Coleus, Creeping Jenny, Heuchera 'Crimson Curls,' 'Green Spice', and 'Dolce Cream de Menthe.' Other plants are: 'Charmed Wine' Oxalis, Brunnera 'Variegata', 'Cardinal' Lobelia, and Celosia. I'm sure I stuffed a few more things in here as time when on, including Golden Dewdrop Duranta erecta 'Lime,' Lysimachia Lime, Victoria Blue Salvia, with the ongoing Sweet Woodruff and False DragonHead that were already there. Whew, can it get any more crowded in here? Oh, and a Jacob's Ladder in the middle.
And don't be coming up to do anything naughty at my house, because the Big Blue Red-Eyed Cat is guarding everything!
