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.

Along the outside border you will find three different varieties of Hosta, one being Mouse Ears, Siberian Iris, a lavender Rose, and Roman Chamomile as well as Bear’s Breeches.

I call this my “Ghost Plant,” the first leaves are eerie as they emerge in early spring.
Big difference…It matures into one of the lushest plants I grow. I chose This plant to add texture to the Garden…

It is also home to a cement leaf bird feeder, a water feature and an urn.

Within the flagstone walk way, Thyme and Gaillardia grow. The garden is edged with medium size river rock.
Absolutely awesome to see the before and the now! Love the way you broke it all down with pics and plant names for the individual areas…as always you are an inspiration!
Thank you for stopping by Beth. Doing these post helps me get inspired as well. I love creating, and reliving the outcome.
