of the maroon Nine Bark foliage.
|See what I mean? No contrast, no definition, no excitement. Blah!|
The only attention-grabber is the serendipitous volunteer Kiss-Me
with its vertical stature and heart-shaped foliage.
So I'm going to be reworking this full-sun bed this fall. I thought about including the Melianthus (you can see on the right side of the photo) but I've got a different place for it. Instead I'm thinking I'll plant my huge pot of Cannas and my 'Tiger Eye' Sumac. And maybe a few small ornamental grasses in front. Any ideas?
|I'm also thinking next springI'll buy another Kale 'Lacinata' to it. |
I'm so impressed with this plant. It's almost five-feet tall!
|In a semi-shady location, the hardy Fuchsias are still going strong.|
|I'm loving my 'Burgundy Bunny' Pennisetum|
|Isn't she gorgeous? I nabbed the last one of these sweet hardy Geraniums last month.|
I think the tag is still outside and I don't want to get it
so if you want to know what it's called, just holler real loudly
and I'll fetch it.
|Spigelia is blooming again. Although I rarely have yellow flowers, I love this guy.|

display. They're so cool.
