Swamp Milkweed (Asclepias Incarnata) begins to flourish in its new site. July 2021
In May of 2020, I began expanding the northern facing 'skirt gardens'. With less intense sun, and naturally moist soil, the garden nearest the house allows for hosta's and ferns, delicate spring ephemerals and moss to flourish.
In June of 2021, at the farmost reaches of our property I re-sited several Rose of Sharon feathered whips (Hibiscus Syriacus) to begin a hedge line with the intention of reducing lawn, increasing wildlife nesting sites and privacy within the garden. However, since Rose of Sharon's are native to China and Asia, I have not yet decided if all or some will be removed, or interspersed with native shrubs, such as Witch Hazel (Hamamelis virginiana).
