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.
A metal headboard serves as a trellis to support these extremely happy roses, while spires of purple larkspur (Consolida ajacis, annual) come into bloom in the foreground.
Roses and Asiatic lilies (Lilium hybrid, Asiatic group, Zones 5–9). In the background you can see a big clump of beautiful purple larkspurs.
