|Boxleaf honeysuckle - planted in the back shade garden.|
|Aster - planted in the front part-shade garden.|
|Lingonberry - planted in the front part-shade garden.|
|Pineapple sage - planted in the front full-sun garden. I had one of these |
plants last year, but it didn't make it through our harsh-for-Portland
winter. I love this plant!
|Asiatic lily - planted in the side part-sun garden. Although I don't like the smell |
of lilies, I have a soft spot for this one. It's orange and as a kid I always called
them tiger lilies. This one was 1/2 price because it was nearly past bloom.
|Another type of boxleaf honeysuckle - planted in the front full-sun garden. |
I bought two of these, and they are a bit of an experiment. They may prove to
be too big. We shall see.
|Sweet woodruff - planted in the back shade garden. I planted two of these and |
have high hopes that they will spread.
|Canna - planted in the front part-sun garden. This is another test plant for me. It's |
been on my plant-want list since last summer and was more affordable than I thought.
|Dogwood - planted in the back shade garden. My own personal splurge this season - $25! |
However, I've been wanting a red-twigged dogwood for a while, and I've got lots
of nearly full shade space to fill. It seemed like a good idea.
|Hooker's Fairy Bells - planted in the back shade garden.|
|Dead nettle - planted in the back shade garden. For some reason lamium has been |
on my plant-want list. I do like the variegated foliage. We'll see how this does.
|Lithodora - planted in the side part-shade garden. I see this everywhere and it's rather |
ordinary looking. However, the promise of spreading to around 3' wide, being
evergreen and tolerating part-shade sold me this year. I bought three.
|Another type of Hooker's Fairy Bells - planted in the back shade garden. Another experiment.|
|Redwood sorrel - planted in the back shade garden. This will spread and might |
become a nuisance. However, I really love it and the kid likes to pick it.
|Foam flower - planted in the back shade garden. The kid picked this out, |
and I'm eager to see what it's cycle is.
|Red creeping thyme - planted in the front full-sun garden. Apparently I |
can't have too much thyme - I've got eight plants now.
|Alysum - planted in the front full-sun garden. Although I usually don't buy |
annuals, I picked up three of these this spring.
