You can’t do this to me, Sherry! There is too much to digest and comment on in one post! Your secret garden is luscious and the path is to-die-for. The plant combos are brilliant. My dbl red ko roses are full of buds and one just opened here in So CT. I’ve wanted Ga Peach heuchera, love the color! Your flame azalea is spectacular, is it blooming before leafing out? Do you find the lamium is high maintenance to keep in bounds? My allium moly is just sending up spikes, 1st year and I’m excited. I’ve got to get some hackonechloa, I have so many spots it will flourish. It’s just rather expensive for tiny sprigs!
lol, thank you Jim! Don’t give me too much credit though on those plant combinations — I’m a “plopper”, and usually just plop plants here and there (trying to squeeze in more!). Sometimes it works out and sometimes not. :)
The Georgia Peach is my favorite heuchera, and it’s the one that grows the best here. It would have been even larger this spring, but the deer ate most of it’s leaves (and stomped the crown).
That bright orange flame azalea is always just glorious, and yes, it does bloom before leafing out completely. The one in the photo is about 12 or 14 feet tall, so it’s more like a tree.
The lamium is -very- robust in it’s growth.. lol… but it’s not too bad. I cut it back out of that path three or four times a year, and dig and spread it around quite a bit. One good thing, once you get it established, you always have plenty to move around. It’s easy though, most of the time I can just pull it up, roots and all. It grows rapidly in spring, and then slows a bit during the summer.
You’re right, the forest grass is CRAZY expensive! Which is why I don’t have more of it. I have two clumps and am anxious for it to spread more so I can move some of it around. I love it with hostas and heucheras.
Thank you again for your sweet comments, and I’m glad you are inspired. Hope you’re having a great spring :)
