It’s planted out with everything I had planned, and then a few more. The latest additions are a few plants from WFF: a tiny little Asclepias incarnata Cinderella that is barely worth the price (though I have high hopes for its future); an Achillea filipendulina Gold Plate that should add some dancing yellow color near the edge of the border; and an Echinops ritro ruthenicus (known to most of us as globe thistle) with its jagged leaves and architectural height. Here’s someone else’s picture of it.
Here’s a look a the border today: still pretty puny but everything is growing and thriving. The grass at the bottom of the picture is pennisetum (fountain grass). The butterfly bush from my neighbor anchors the top. I still have high hopes for a late summer mass of tall flowering plants in shades of blue, yellow and pink.
