As the heat settles on the garden and we slip into those lazy hazy days of summer foliage plays a big part in the garden.
Green is the operating word here at Greenbow. Where in the flower beds there are a lot of greens and then take many forms. Barren Wort (epimedium), Ginger and Sensitive Ferns huddle together.
I saw in a magazine a picture of black grass popping up in a spread of golden creeping jenny. It works but the creeping jenny has to be tamed from time to time as it trys to take over the world. In my garden the "golden" creeper turns more green this time of year. I would like it better if it stayed its golden color longer.
Hostas play a big part in my shade garden. They tend to hold the colors that they are supposed to be.
