Today we’re in Hillsborough, North Carolina, where Terry combines beautiful plants with unusual pieces of garden art and sculpture made from repurposed materials.
Money plant (Lunaria annua, Zones 5–9) is a biennial that thrives in moderately shaded spots, putting up clouds of purple flowers in the spring that transform into the silvery, coin-shaped seedpods that give it its common name.
Blanket flower (Gaillardia, Zones 4–10), with its cheery orange-and-yellow blooms, is backed up by a cloud of pink evening primrose (Oenothera speciosa, Zones 4–9). They’re both performing in front of a wonderful shed/greenhouse created from old windows.
Bright red poppies (Papaver rhoeas, annual) bloom amid a few tea cups set on poles as pieces of garden art.
