www.larksperennials.com My husband and I have worked on our yard for 13 years. We are now retired and enjoying gardening and landscaping. We have done all the work ourselves. I do the gardens and he does the hardscape, grass, shrubs and the woods. We are located in Wisconsin zone 4-5.
4 of 18: The deep blue flower in that chair is a new variety of petunia \'Supertunia, Royal Velvet\'. No deadheading and just keeps blooming and blooming.
11 of 18: The hot pink plant is something I picked up at our local Farmers Market. The lady called it a bloodleaf plant. In Wisconsin I grow it as a houseplant and take cuttings for Spring. Its brilliant color looks good all the time. The purple hanging plant is also a houseplant I call Moses in the Bullrush. I think it is in the spiderwort family. Golden Scepter Hosta is peeking through.
12 of 18: PeeGee Hydrangea Tree that was planted Fall of 2007 and made it through our severe Wisconsin 4/5 Winter. My husband chicken wires the trunk so the bunnies don\'t eat it over Winter.
13 of 18: Sweet Autumn Clematis is blooming, tiny white fragrant flowers. In Spring there is Dr. Ruppel Clematis and William Baffin Climbing Rose which the Bunnies ate down to 10inches last Winter. Oh well it is coming back. I will chicken wire it for the Winter.
