Today we’re back for more of Luana Carpenter’s garden in Massilon, Ohio.
In the shady garden are ‘Annabelle’ hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens ‘Annabelle’, Zones 3–9), Heuchera, Hosta, and Geranium.
Just inside the arbor, ‘Little Henry’ sweetspire (Itea virginica ‘Little Henry’, Zone 5–9), Astilbe, and bear’s breeches (Acanthus mollis, Zones 6–9) brighten a shady spot.
Pink ‘Nearly Wild’ roses contrast with spiderwort (Tradescantia virginiana, Zones 4–9).
Foliage and flowers working together, with a blue spruce (Picea pungens, Zones 3–9) making a silvery-blue backdrop to the roses and foliage around it.
Wide view of the garden with some visitors.
Lush beds overflowing and vines scrambling up trellises to create a rich, vibrant garden space.
A huge clump of peachy-pink Astilbe.
A comfortable, shaded seated area looks out on the thickly planted borders.
Wide view of the garden, with roses, perennials, vines, and shrubs all working together, with a bench on which to sit and enjoy it all.
A tall oakleaf hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia, Zones 5–9) with a lacecap bigleaf hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla, Zones 6–11) both loaded down with flowers.
