The slugs have not yet gone on full force attack mode .. constant battle, but I try to stick to thick ridged hosta to discourage the little "you know whats !"
Mint Frost heuchera upper left corner, down past August Moon hosta is Pinot Gris (I bought several because I flipped for them .. go figure ?) across is Stop Light .. then Gypsy Dancer .. down from there is Lime Ricky or possibly Key Lime Pie (oops on my part)
I love the mix with hosta and that amazing dicentra that blooms its little heart out all season for me : ) The Pinot Gris colour pops amongst all the green and blue hues doesn't it ?
Gypsy Dancer being a bit smaller can be over looked .. but that dark colour draws your attention to it .. especially against Stop Light. August Moon hosta is a beautiful back drop for them.
That mix of colour and texture is actually soothing when I look at it : )
The marble affect of Mint Frost charged with the pink pop of the dicentra cooled by August Moon and then Pinot Gris smiles : )
A blue hue also blends wonderfully from a siebold hosta .. elegans ? perhaps .. must check on that !
Gypsy Dancer's colour truly stands out between these two ! The gold barberry brings a smaller leaf texture to the group and then this wonderful geranium with interesting leaves that are fuzzy to the feel .. I can't think of its proper name at the moment .. arrghhh !!
Marmalade heuchera is one that I have divided a lot and it seems to like that .. it has heaved a bit on me some years but then I take that cue and divide and it is happier after throwing some babies ?
Another green marbled one is Harvest Silver .. one of those late season bargains I couldn't pass up .. it blends in nicely !
Now for Geisha's Fan .. the back garden .. usually there is more of a marble affect but it goes back and forth with the weather and timing of the month .. sounds like a woman right ?? ;-)
Dale's Strain is across from it .. holding the green tone.
Tiarella Pink Skyrocket after blooming .. it's sharply cut leaves are beautiful against Jack Frost Brunnera and Beauty Colour heuchera
Throw in those soothing hosta lines and that colour with some rain drops.
Korean Yellow Wax Bells .. Casa Blanca lily , Silver Scrolls heuchera (my first love of them all) with Dolce Peach Melba for that zing .. gold Creeping Jenny .. blue crested gentian .. Filipendula Rubra meadowsweet .. another little dicentra .. Wargrave Pink geranium ..waterfall campanula .. a primula here and there .. a bit of bloody dock (decoy plant for bugs to eat that instead of garden babies I love ? go figure .. army tactics to avoid me crying in garden when seeing ragged plants ?
Now you know how far I will go to pack in the plants I love ?? ;-) If I list them all it might be too scary for ... me !!! LOL
