Lynn's have i Wisconsin

July 2014

 

Today's photos are from Lynn Nehring out in western Wisconsin. She says, "In the fall of 2013 I had to endure many changes, as we had to have a mound septic system installed.  I dreaded it; however, I saw opportunity as well. In October 2013 I planted a new island bed between an existing hill and the new hill created by the mound.  I've included a picture from fall 2013 and another from July 2014. Sun and shade perennials did very well in this area and I've been thrilled with the outcome.

Standing on top of the mound turned out to be a great place to take pictures.  Here's a summer picture.....

Thought I'd take you on a tour of some of the other areas. Here is one of my few sunny areas that includes daylilies, lilies, echinacea, mondarda, rudbeckia, various sedums, etc.  2014 was a great growing year for us as we had more rain than average.

This garden is shady on the left and sunny on the right (see the astilboides plants and lilies)

This area gets very little sun after 11:00 a.m. but seems to thrive.  You've seen this shot from another year.  The lilies were fantastic this year. They are the OT (orienpet) oriental/trumpet cross, many of which get at least six feet tall here.

A part-sun area behind our garage.  The wax begonias brightened the area all summer.

This is one end of a bed that is about 90 feet long and 30 wide at the widest.  It does amazingly well with no more than a couple hours of sun in most spots. The lilies have to be staked but the effort is worth the color.  Phlox thrive here as well as hostas, astilbes, ferns, and Siberian irises.

The ligularia 'Britt Marie Crawford' takes the stage here.  I moved it to this location a few years ago and couldn't believe what a bit more light did for it.  It loves moist soil, too.

A September picture of the retaining wall garden I planted in the fall of 2012.  I used the castor bean plants for height and annual grasses on the corners to break up all that white siding.
