Outside Gardens and Planters

An early morning glimpse at my "Pink Garden" .  Not much pink is in bloom except the foxgloves and some cosmos.  The shrub is a Nikko Deutzia and will fill out more in the next several days.

Just above that I have two planters with "Baby Moses" grass, and two supertunias called Daybreak Charm and Mini Vista Indigo.  They are just starting to fill out.

My island out front which we expanded last year in this "post" has come up very nicely.  Everything is bigger and even better it all came up!

Almost nothing is in bloom here but it should pop soon!

I took a panoramic photo which makes it look more rounded and short!

On the end are a bunch of Stella De'Oro daylilies that are just starting to shoot up their buds.

Only thing blooming is my Max Frei Cranesbill.

Last year I did a post about creating this shade garden.  I'm pleased that everything came back and is looking great!

Out back as we walk up the sidewalk is a planter loaded with Creeping Jenny, White Begonias and a Royal Hawaiian Blue Hawaii elephant's ear.  Can't wait for the elephant's ear to grow much larger!

Remember earlier this spring I did a "post" about how we moved three Limelight Hydrangeas over to this area and I also split up some hostas and created a step down from the Limelights, then another step down to the "Wild Rose" Coral Bells (Heuchera)  Then I planted some white alyssum and pink begonias.  We'll see how it all looks in a month from now!

The shrubs seemed to have taken the transplant well.  We'll see if they're going to bloom!

This is the area that we took the Limelights from and planted these new "Tiny Tuff Stuff" Hydrangeas.

The're shooting off new growth which is a good sign.  I ordered these online and they came up from North Carolina.  It was a particularly cold spring so I kept them in the garage at night and brought them out for some sun.  Eventually we planted them and a few weeks later they started to bloom!

The lace cap flowers are pretty!  They've just started blooming so I'm looking forward to how they fill out.

Several years ago I took out my Engdless Summer Hydrangeas and replaced them with these "Pink Sparkler" Spiraea.  They are filling out nicely and have begun to bloom.

This is how they looked a few years back.

Out front of the garage I have a pair of planters.  I planted a Papyrus called Prince Tut in the center as well as Sweet Caroline Sweetheart Lime Sweet Potato Vine and Supertunia Vista Fuchsia.  It's just now started to fill in and I'm looking forward to seeing how the Supertunia's do!

They really are a nice fuchsia color!

I guess I'll wrap it up for now!  I have a lot more to show but I'll spread it out!
