Magic Touch & Her Mini Woodland Garden…

Magic Touch & Her Gardens: Magic Touch & Her Mini Woodland Garden

On the east facing side, aka the shady side of the house, I have created a mini woodland garden. I chose, from left to right, Oak-Leaf Hydrangea, Dropmore Honeysuckle, and Hemlock as my anchor plants. I found room for a Rhododendron between the Hydrangea and Honeysuckle.

The under story plants include a White Bleeding Heart, Trillium, Jack-in-the-Pulpit, Jewelweed, Bloodroot, ¬†Bear’s Breeches, and Ostrich-Fern.

Big difference…It matures into one of the lushest plants I grow. I chose This plant to add texture to the Garden…
