At least for these plants! This time of year it's simply amazing how lush and green all the plants are. Green happens to the be subject of the latest Gardening Gone Wild Photo Contest. This morning I went out and took a few pictures of the greenery around the garden that might be contest worthy. Here's a look at a few of the pictures I took.
Heuchera 'Dale's Strain' - This is a fun little green heuchera with little silver shading that dapples the leaves.
Hosta - It could be a 'Patriot' but my memory is fading as to which hosta went where in the corner shade garden.
The dappled foliage of the Japanese Dappled Willow (Salix integra).
The green flower of a Snowball viburnum - not yet mature.
The 'Shasta' Viburnum
And another picture of the 'Shasta' Viburnum. The still light green flowers make the perfect picture for this contest, what do you think?
