I started a series two weeks ago called Friday Favs. It was the first of the series and I forgot to post last Friday…off to a great start here Grunt.
So today..I’m hitting ya with TWO FRIDAY FAVS…..hold onto your seats Grunts.
And something new within the last year or so…the Limelight Hydrangea Tree. Taking the shrub and grafting it to a dwarf tree cultivar. I’ve got one of these at the front in our front landscape and love it!
I like the Limelight Hydrangea because it only reaches roughly 4-5ft tall and wide, the blooms last FOREVER (about 2 months strong) and the overall structure of the shrub is much stronger than the older versions of Hydrangeas. In my own garden, I’m using the Limelights to create a little privacy for my patio.
My SECOND FAVORITE is the Japanese Forest Grass.
What fascinates me about the Japanese Forest Grass is the overflowing nature of its foliage and the blend of fall colors. The best part? This spicy grass thrives in the shade! Who ever said you can’t bring color to the dreary parts of the garden!?!
What’s sprouting in your shade garden?
