Dette område støder op til hovedindgangen. Hvert år omdanner vi det til The Jungle.

 

Dette område støder op til hovedindgangen. Hvert år omdanner vi det til "The Jungle".

 

The composition changes slightly from year to year depending on what we have planned for other areas. For instance, this year our four tropical smoke bushes were not needed elsewhere so I massed them in the center back of the main bed. The jungle continues to the right. Besides the smokebushes, visible are Red Abyssinian banana, Banana Gran Nain, King Tut papyrus, Borneo Giant elephant ear, Black Coral elephant ear and Albert the alligator. Albert will be leaving soon for the Okefenokee Swamp.

 

Thanks to Chris Neumann, Lead Horticulturist for sharing the gardens at Oakwood Village Prairie Ridge in Madison, Wisconsin!

 

"I don't want to say good-bye to summer but I forced to admit it is fall. Here are more photos of some of the gardens at Oakwood Village Prairie Ridge, the non-profit continuing care retirement community for which I work. Our tropical plants are finding this warmer than average September just fine and act as if summer will never end. Elsewhere on campus, the asters, mums and goldenrods are saying cold weather is on its way."

We plant these beds with annuals every year but, unlike the Jungle, it can change radically from year to year. This year we went with a succulent theme, using agaves, echevarias, paddle plants, cacti and others.
