Planting this morning
I'm only planting three containers this year so that I don't have to worry about keeping so many watered. In the two urns in the sunken garden I planted rose scented geraniums, the ones with the silver grey foliage that I love. In the big urn ontop the wall above, I put in a Datura Ballerina White. The lady at the nursery was skeptical, but I wanted both height and width in the urn; and since it sits high perhaps the Datura will branch out and down over the wall. I've only ever planted Datura in the ground and I know it can get BIG and spread out. We shall see. How many babies will I deal with next year? :)
Then I planted three Ajuga "Black Scallop"(Bugleweed) in the small bed in the same little sunken garden. Normally I put annuals there but going to see how a perennial ground cover works. I have some Ajuga "Chocolate Chip" in another area and other than cutting it back when it spreads out too far, I really like it.
Two more perennials I planted about the garden are Campanula "Blue Waterfall", and Oenothera Missouriensis "Missouri Sundrops". I always just called them Evening Primrose. Used to have alot but they disappeared several years ago.
