www.larksperennials.com EARLY SUMMER GARDEN 2008
This is my Wisconsin zone 4-5 June garden. We only get 6 months to enjoy these vivid colors.
2 of 17: White Snakeroot. I like the burgundy foliage and it blooms a white flower late in September.
5 of 17: This is what we call our ditch daylilly. Spreads wildly but such a beautiful orange. Clematis Jackmanni purple really compliments it.
6 of 17: This is my WILD AREA. I edge it with bent twigs that I insert in the ground in early Spring when the soil is wet.
8 of 17: Coryopsis Tickseed, Feverfew and a burgundy houseplant I call Moses in the Bullrush. I start quite a few of these plants in the house then move them outdoors in Spring. I like the foliage color dotted all over the garden.
10 of 17: Rose Campion some people think is a weed. I just make sure I deadhead it before to many seeds fall. People are really attracted to its vibrant color.
14 of 17: Pink Astillbe and Cimicifuga \'Hillside Black Beauty\' not only has that beautiful burgundy foliage but its flower is VERY FRAGRANT.
