Today we’re in Bill Ziebarth’s garden.
I live in Duluth, Minnesota. I have been gardening all my life and for 23 years in my current location. I love to keep changing my gardens. A lot of the garden art in my gardens came from the family farm that I grew up on.
Hydrangeas (Hydrangea paniculata, Zones 3–8), daylilies, and other perennials in front of a foot bridge connecting a pathway.
Petunias (Petunia hybrid, annual) in a birdcage. The rest of my flowers are free range.
A piece of garden art built around a Swedish window mullion features geraniums (Pelargonium hybrid, annual) and petunias in a Spanish window box, and clematis climbing up the window.
Framing my garden—with hydrangeas, a birch tree (Betula papyrifera, Zones 2–6), and my greenhouse.
My greenhouse. The corrugated metal on the bottom came from the roof of my dad’s barn.
Wide view of the garden, with views stretching beyond.
I’ve been everywhere.
Bee balm (Monarda didyma, Zones 4–9) for the hummingbirds in the rear, and ornamental grasses, a dark-leaved ninebark (Physocarpus opulifolius, Zones 2–8), and black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia fulgida, Zones 4–9) in the foreground.
