Well, you win some, you lose some. So far, I've lost the Mertensia virginica, two liatris and two Dicentra "Golden Heart". They either didn't make it through the shipping process, or did not bother do take root and grow! Oh well, there goes my love of watching plants grow up from root-balls!
Well, there you have the latest from Greene Garden. It's still a very young garden and will take some time to settle out and into itself, but that process is all part of the fun. Happy gardening!
|I added some already well developed Delphiniums and Digitalis. The Digitalis is finishing its bloom, but the Delphs are coming in just coming into bloom.|
|A few of the younger Digitalis from WFF.|
|Dicentra 'Bleeding Heart' and Helleborus foetidus. Notice the D. 'Golden Heart' in the back just hanging on for its life. (yes, WFF, this was purchased from your shop!|
|The climbing Hydrangea anamola petiolaris is finally "climbing"!|
|The back corners of the central bed are anchored with Skimmia.|
|I love Stachys and planted two, which was all my plantsman had in his nursery. I'm sure they will multiply fourfold next year.|
|Echinacea purpurea now taking the place of the liatris.|
|Russian sage. Crossing my fingers that this will grow into a large specimen and fill up part of the area that was originally space for the Mertensia (which rotted and died) and the Anemones (which I moved next to the Stachys).|
|Begonia grandis. Breathtaking green leaves with red veins. I like this perennial variety very much.|
