A Walk In The Moon Garden
The Moon Garden is really starting to shape up. I put black mulch down and it seems to make the whites even brighter.
The Rose Moss is finally growing, they must be slow starters. So far only one plant has croaked. It was a Jacobs Ladder and apparently it didn't like wet feet. I'll have to watch watering the perennials unless they are very dry.
The White Liatris is getting ready to bloom. They always seem to be a week or so behind the purple ones. I haven't decided if I like where it is planted, so it might get moved this Fall.
My newest plant is an Artemisia 'Silver Mound'('Nana'). I moved a daisy that was just too big for that spot. I was looking for Silver King but this one was 2.00 at the Farmers market so I got it instead.
The Lambs Ears seem to be enjoying their spot in the garden. This winter I will look for more plants that have silver foliage.
I've never grown Hosta before, but I'm thinking they might eventually outgrow this spot. I guess I'll cross that bridge when I get there;)
This variegated Sage fits right in. The tag said it was a tender perennial so I'll have to protect it this winter. Anyone have any ideas?
