On the east facing side, aka the shady side of the house, I have created a mini woodland garden. I chose, from left to right, Oak-Leaf Hydrangea, Dropmore Honeysuckle, and Hemlock as my anchor plants. I found room for a Rhododendron between the Hydrangea and Honeysuckle.
Oak Leaf Hydrangea
Dropmore Honeysuckle Bloom
The under story plants include a White Bleeding Heart, Trilium, Jack-in-the-Pulpit, Jewelweed, Bloodroot, Bear’s Breeches, and Ostrich-Fern.
White Bleeding Heart
Along the outside border you will find three different varieties of Hosta, one being Mouse Ears, Siberian Iris, a lavender Rose, and Roman Chamomile as well as Bear’s Breeches.
Acanthus mollis ‘Tasmanian Angel’ (Bear’s breeches)
I call this my “Ghost Plant,” the first leaves are eerie as they emerge in early spring.
Big difference…It matures into one of the lushest plants I grow. I chose This plant to add texture to the Garden…
Hostas & Roman Chamomile
It is also home to a cement leaf bird feeder, a water feature and an urn.
