Today’s photos are from Ruth Ann Mummey in New Jersey. she says, “We moved to our farm in 1995. It is a small nursery specializing mostly in holly, which we sell primarily to the trade. My passion is hydrangeas and crepe myrtles. I was told crepe myrtles wouldn’t grow on our windy hill in central New Jersey. However, after an initial struggle, the ones I planted in 1996 are still there with new self-seeded ones filling in.
“The deep pink is ‘Tonto’ and the lighter pink is ‘Hopi’. In other parts of the garden I have ‘Pink Velour’ and a few that have self-seeded in lighter pink and a pinky-purple. My husband made the obelisks for me this spring. The perennial beds have undergone constant change as I learn more about what works, what works without too much work, and what I like.”
Wow, those crape myrtles are gorgeous, Ruth Ann! I love how they create a vivid backdrop for your perennial beds.
