coral bells, tufted hair grass, lady’s mantle and bowman’s root

…. around an Evans Cherry tree.


… and closer up:



Blue fescue, bearded iris, feather reed grass, and a volunteer sunflower

This was supposed to be part of the “White Garden” but I’ve had to start experimenting as it’s been hard to get things to take in this little strip on the south side of our garage.  It’s baking hot at noon but also in the shade a large part of the day because it’s close to the house.  It is also in a rain shadow.  These plants seem to be handling the tough conditions all right.
