A melange of plants that strike my fancy. With emphasis on great foliage first.

Christina, let me start by saying what an amazing job you have done with your front garden. I always find it difficult to envision the end result - but you sure know what you are doing - fantastic job! I am a complete neophyte when it comes to gardening. I am still learning the names of plants. With that in mind, I had some questions for you:

1. Are the green plants along your windows Rhododemdrums? and what type?
2. What are the purple/pink flowers along the front?
3. What are the plants

Gorgeous!! I just love it, especially the first picture! You are making me want to go outside and play so bad right now but unfortunately I'm in school and having to study now! :-(

Love it. To me a garden should be filled with beautiful color and this is a rainbow for sure

This is actually an incredibly simple set of plants. Lots of Impatiens, Pansies, Lobelia for the annuals. I base them around great shrubs such as; Barberry, Nandina, Euonymous, Lavender, Rhododendrons, (Phormiums are pictured here, but no longer used, because of lack of hardiness). Perennials are Heuchera and the variegated one is a rare one that I can never remember the name or! The tree is a Dappled Willow.
Hope that helps!

I love the use of good structure and colour shrubs in combination with highcolour fast growing annuals and pernnials. ITs real gardening and design in real situation not show gardening. Well done and a great website and competition bye the way.
