From the Garden Committee:
We are finally making headway in the shade garden! Roots, weeds, trash and broken asphalt have been cleared. Stability supports, foundations, drainage and the basic stonework have been set in place. Our planting area has been limited by such discoveries as a larger asphalt apron than was previously visible. Most plants donated months ago have now been planted. But we could use some specific plants for remaining special areas. There will be room for only 1-3 plants of any one type. If anyone has any extras to donate from the list below, it would be sooooo appreciated!
Black-eyed Susan (Rudbekia)
Cardinal flower (Lobelia cardinalis)
Blue Lobelia (L.siphilatica)
Little Bluestem ‘Jazz’ (only this variety)
Hakonechloa (any golden variety)
Golden Creeping Jenny (Lysimachia aurea) Only this non-invasive variety!
Blue iris (Iris versicolor)
Or let us know your suggestions for other ground-cover, low-growing, part-sun, (fiberous-rooted-for-the-rain-garden), and colorful plants.
Thank you all for your help and support!
