Click on the links below to see my "collections" of plants in each group:
Peonies are my favorite plants and I have a variety of different types: tree peonies, lactifloras, herbaceous hybrids, species peonies, and an intersectional.
|Chinese tree peonies blooming in May|
I have several roses, including Old Garden Roses, modern shrubs, Austin roses, and a species rose.
Asiatics, Orientals, Martagons, and some LA hybrids.
|LA hybrid lily 'Golden Tycoon'|
You can squeeze a lot of vines in a small space!
I have way too many geraniums... it's starting to get ridiculous.
|Heuchera 'Firefly' flowering, with hosta and astilbe|
Shade garden stalwarts.
Other perennials not listed above, which prefer mostly sunny conditions.
|Dryopteris felix-mas (male fern), with Bergenia cordifolia 'Red Beauty', Polygonatum odoratum, Heuchera 'Snow Angel', Dicentra spectabilis|
My favorite is shrubs with good fall color, like barberry, viburnum, and fothergilla.
|Chamaecyparis pisifera aurea nana (Golden False Cypress) with Sedum spectabile and Heuchera 'Prince'|
I mostly stick to bulbs that I hope will perennialize, like daffodils, scilla, chionodoxa, and early or species tulips.
|Double early tulip 'Abba' with perennial candytuft (Iberis sempervirens)|
Amelanchier (unknown species/cultivar)
Maples (unknown species)
