Today’s photos take us to Jan Meissner’s garden in Avon, Ohio, again. Today she says, “Weeping threadleaf arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis ‘Filiformis’, USDA Hardiness Zones 2-7) seems like a plant straight out of the imagination of Dr. Suess. It keeps things interesting in this boring spot in the side yard. The crazy giant hosta next to it looks like it’s fighting for attention. No one ever sees this this part of the garden, but when I throw compost into my bin that’s tucked into a corner here, my crazy specimens make me smile.” Thanks, Jan!
