More groundcovers! In Liz Niebling’s garden in Exeter, New Hampshire, a swath of vinca is the perfect canvas for this vase-shaped hosta. A young hosta like this can be easily lost, visually, in a garden until it gains some mass, but this clean carpet of deep green accentuates it, and makes it stand out beautifully.

Welcome to the Fine Gardening GARDEN PHOTO OF THE DAY blog! Every weekday we post a new photo of a great garden, a spectacular plant, a stunning plant combination, or any number of other subjects. Think of it as your morning jolt of green.
If you think you have a photo that we should share on the Garden Photo of the day, email us. Send hi-res images to [email protected] with GPOD in the subject line. We’ll only respond if we plan to use your photo.
