少有人的路

纯属点点滴滴生活中的个人体会。
任何观点都只有一部分是正确的,我写写、你看看、挑着信、试着用。

Perennial Garden

Garden club event -- 6/11/2018 (Up state NY, zone 5)
- by Sue Ann DuBios (Master Gardener/Designer, Chips Landscaping co-owner)

Movie about gardening -- <<Being There>>

CSS attitude: Common Sense and Sustainability

  • Beauty reliability abundance
  • Give me 80% value…just show up each year
  • No divas
  • No aggressors/bullies
  • No low performers
  • No random selections
  • Have a specific “time for performance”
  • Never rely too heavily on one selection

Garden structure

  • Gardens are living, breathing, developing thing
  • The “bones” of the garden are the trees and shrubs. They grow to maturity just as with the human body.
  • The living breathing area requires care and maintenance to sustain its life.
  • The “muscles” of the garden are perennials
  • A garden has its seasons…just as we do each year of our life.

Native or non-native, mix match, blend them!

Consider soil, water, and light:

  • Sun: at least 6 hours
  • Part sun or part shade: 4-6 hours
  • Shade: bright reflection light, but no direct sun. Morning sun is also fine.

Flowers Pictures:

White daisy

 

Phenomenal lavender, pretty tough during winter, less die down.

Penstemon -- Beardtongue

Ornamental grass, smaller type, big one is hard to handle.

Astilbe

Leopard Plant (bottle rocket liqularia)

Catchfly -- Lychnis Coronaria (Rose campion) - Hope Mountain Nurseries

A popular garden favorite, this is a short-lived perennial that will usually self-seed for many years. Plants form a low mound of felted silvery-grey leaves, bearing upright stems in summer...

Coreflowers

Yarrow achillea
