The whole yard is glowing. The cool temps are keeing some around for 2 weeks, others are slowly opening/
So pretty - love your pictures!
Makes this cold morning a lot cheerier, Cynthia. Thanks so much. What do you put in those beds once the tulips are done??
The big bed where the orange Flair striped tulip are now will have Gregg's Blue mist on that corner, red Turks cap in the background by the pecan tree and Salviat Black and Blue as well as Argentine Skies in the middle. Along the walkway I'll plant a few Lemon Lollipops. To the left, by the house is always a challenge, you would think South facing would be easy but it almost gets enough sun for pentas... . I'll end up with caladiums where the anemones are under the other pecan tree and the kidney shaped bed in the middle of the yard will likely get Sun coleus or begonias.
There is usually a stripe of Persian shield near the Buda and a strip of Lemon Lollipops somewhere. I save them but rats tore them up in my greenhouse this year.
I am always on the hunt for suggestions for part sun or shade color. Any suggestions?
I use iresine for color in some of my shady areas.....it also did well last year in filtered sun. I love the brightness of it and is a very good contrast plant.
