Dierama pulcherrimum aka Fairy Wand loves this garden!
Water Hyacinth in bloom. So delicate and pretty but highly invasive in warmer climates.
Great lichen-covered bench. The Nixons have an interest in exhibition chrysanthemums and there were pots of them scattered all over the place. Doesn't the foliage look happy and healthy?
A large, perhaps inherited, pear tree heavy with fruit.
Fun collection of potted plants.
Hydrangea time is in full swing. Love those deep colors!
"Secret 'rain forest' garden tucked in on the North side for deep shade loving plants."
"Fruit trees, berry garden and asparagus bed illustrate how easy it is to add edibles to the mix. Every season is a surprise here!"
Pots of orange ornamental grass (Anemanthele lessoniana?) punctuate the garden.
Dierama pulcherrimum seed pods make the most wonderful noise if brushed or blown by wind.
Thanks Darcanne and John for opening your garden! I hope you enjoyed the experience as much as your visitors did!
