Today's photos are from Nancy Bellaire (HellofromMD) down in Maryland (previous posts HERE). She says, "Last year I decided to do a makeover of my perennials in my mixed border of rhododendrons, double red Knockout roses, 'Invincibelle' hydrangea, and stars of Persia alliums. The old perennials spilled out over the lawn, killing the grass, and then the geraniums needed a haircut, leaving a brown area that I got sick of seeing. I removed the plants, spread leafgro and flowertone, then dug it in by hand. The plants filled in beyond my expectations and the edging plants gave me a nice line with no more dead grass. I had fun trying out a lot of new plants: Eucomis 'Sparkling Burgundy', Allium 'Millenium', Crocosomia 'Alborado’, Aster ‘Bluebird’, Chrysanthemum ‘Samba’, and Coreopsis ‘Red Satin’. The edging is the non-flowering lamb’s ears and ‘Brigadoon’ St. John’s wort. I moved my 'Custard Candy' daylilies here and added the dwarf lilies 'Tiny Dancer' and 'Tiny Spider'. I got these from Hallson’s, famous for their hostas but a great source of lilies. too. Hang in there everyone. Hope today is the last day of snow!" Beautiful, Nancy! Those are some happy plants.
