What Plants Work in Your Garden?
After three years of threatening to do it, I finally got the center island planted! Thanks to Brad for all the irrigation lines and Justin for the hauling the rocks and dirt and helping me plant.
I spent the three years thinking about the garden. There are so many requirements here. The plants must be drought-tolerant, bunny-resistant, frost-proof. The flower colors must combine well (pinks, purples, blues, and silver).
This is what I've planted so far: dianthus (sweet william), lemon thyme, delphinium, dogwood, veronica, salvia, nepeta (catmint), columbine, guara, peony, bleeding heart, cranesbill, baspista, artemesia.
This is what I still want: lavendar, agastache, allium, iris, soapwort, echinacea, buddleia, penstemon.
Now that the basics are set, I expect that this will be a continuing, evolving process. I am excited about the possibilities.
