It is always a treat to visit Caroline Williams’ Louisiana garden! If you’ve missed her garden before, check out her containers and glowing tulips. Today she’s hoping we will relax and soak in the beauty in her garden.
My flowers are putting on a beautiful show. Take a seat in a swing, sip your favorite beverage, relax, and enjoy the view.
The reddish tones in the foliage of a wand flower (Gaura lindheimeri, Zones 5–9) echo the color of the rose behind it.
Healthy, glossy rose foliage weaves its way through flowering annuals.
Bold daylilies (Hemerocallis sp.) are a favorite in nearly every garden because they are so easy to make happy and bring so much color.
Cheerful, yellow black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia sp.) massed behind yellow lantana (Lantana camara, Zones 9–11 or as annual) make a cloud of yellow behind a very happy pink rose.
Lantana is a favorite in the South because it laughs at heat and drought, and even better, the flowers are favorites of visiting butterflies. Here the cheery yellow color complements a purple bee balm (Monarda didyma, Zones 5–9).
