I'm reorganizing some of my planting areas this Spring. I have many overgrown perennials taking up too much space in my garden. I would love to share them with you.
I'll be working in the garden this weekend, weather permitting, from Saturday May 4 about 12 noon on, and Sunday May 5. I'm on Stratford Road in Beverley Square West (between Cortelyou and
Beverly Roads). Email me at xr...@gmail.com to set a time to stop by and we'll dig the plants fresh out of the ground for you.
If you don't know what will grow, tell me what you have to garden in and I'll give you something that will grow well for you. I have plants for sun, shade, or anything in between:
- Corydalis cheilanthifolia (ferny foliage, yellow flowers, blooming now)
- Hemerocallis, Daylilies (mostly the common orange H. fulva, but also some fragrant yellow ones)
- Iris siberica, Siberian Iris
- Bearded Iris, Purple-flowering, smell like grape jelly
- Hosta (plain green leaves, purple flowers)
- Asarum canadense, Wild Ginger
- Helianthus, tall perennial sunflowers, including H. tuberosa, Jerusalem Artichoke
- Onoclea sensibilis, Sensitive Fern
- Phlox stolonifera, Creeping Phlox
- Pycnanthemum, Mountain-Mint, a great pollinator plant
- Viola, violets, both purple- and white-flowering
All of these are "outdoor" plants. They need the cold of Winter to rest each year. Some of them can be grown in containers; you don't need to have ground to garden!
