Last year we put in tons of hours putting in plants. This year we are reaping the rewards. Meet a few of my favorites and rare ones.
This is a Balloon flower, because of the way it buds. Last year, we only got a few blooms and then it died...I thought. This year, I have a glorious little patch of interesting purple blooms.
This plant is a new addition this year, because I thought the Hostas got too much sun and didn't do well last year. But, I spoke too soon, because the Hostas came up with vigor. So now they are accompanied by 3 of these interesting Leopard plants, obviously named due to its yellow spots.
Nothing new about this set, but it is amazing how vigorous everything is growing--Yellow Sundrops, Pink Scullcaps, and Purple Veronica Royal Candles.
And you can't forget the mint in the container which I haven't transplanted or touched in at least 5 year. It just keeps coming back!
