Sometimes two similar textures can work quite well together. Gardeners at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens combined ‘Miracle’ heuchera (Heuchera ‘Miracle’, USDA Hardiness Zones 4-9) with catmint (Nepeta spp. and cvs., Zones 3-8) to great effect, proving this point. Their colors are as soft as their textures, but just different enough to make an appealing contrast.


Last week, assistant editor Kerry Ann Morre took a garden-themed tour of Maine with her trusty camera by her side. This week in the GPOD, we’re featuring five photos from one of her favorite stops, the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay. Enjoy!
