These articles can be used by homeowners as a resource for ideas for flower gardens and more. I wrote several stories this year on, for instance, flowering shrubs that will earn a "back row seat" in garden beds, serving as a backdrop for your annuals and perennials. Information is provided on plant care and selection, plus links to DIY projects. The articles on this page were published in January-March, 2008; be sure to visit the other 4 pages of this 5 page archive to access links to articles written from April to December of 2008.
Among my pictures of flower gardens are the photos in a gallery devoted to so-called "black" plants. Weigela, alyssum, hibiscus and sedum are examples of some of the plants whose merits I discuss as possible selections for your own plantings.
