This year I am thinking white. I'm not sure why, but I keep envisioning white in my head so I'm just going to roll with it!
Last year I moved my Autumn Clematis. It was planted behind my Amur Maple which frustrated me because I could never see it from the kitchen window. Big mistake. The drought fried it.
Garden goal #1 for 2013- be patient and don't rush things
So in this empty bed along the fence where we actually do get some sun, I will be purchasing and replanting an Autumn Clematis. I enjoy the white blooms and vigor of this vine.
Next on the list is to fill this area in. It isn't a large bed but it could be a neat little area with stepping stones for the beans!
Garden goal #2 for 2013- try new things
I ordered some seeds from Burpee for this bed. I went with the White Wedding Zinnias. An average flower to most but, their symmetry and shape always draw me in.
As I said in a previous post here I am going to take Larry Hodgson's advice and plant a fast growing annual vine to give me some show while I wait PATIENTLY for the clematis to fill in.
Garden goal #3 for 2013- use more annuals
This Moonflower should do the trick along the fence to give me some instant gratification!
More plant ideas for the space.
