Meditation Area

Ann 2 in Monroeville, AL

Island bed containing Cutleaf Japanese Maple surrounded by Yellow Stella D'Oro daylilies. Other plantings include Red Waxleaf Begonia, Yellow Lantana, Zebragrass, Orange flowering Cannas, Yellow Coreopsis, Dusty Miller, and Lirope. A paver and white gravel path leads from back corner of house to backyard in front of covered patio. At some point, I would love to have an open patio constructed, which will adjoin the covered patio and form a semicircle in the backyard, surrounded by flowers and foliage, of course!
