The question is -- what now?
We've cleared this bed outside our kitchen dining area and now we are wondering what to plant.
This is the south side of the house, fairly dry but with good drainage (foto was taken around 5pm so there's shade from a large tree on the other side of the driveway). Near the fence, which faces east you can see a little bit of a rose bush which I'd like to keep.
Thinking about a Japanese maple in front of the windows but what else would thrive here? We've discussed sprinkling Nandinas around for soft movement and color, maybe a couple of lounging loropetalums too. Ribbon grass for edging? Attractive but low maintenance is what we seek!
