Nice chicky. Nice subtle blends. Artistic, may I say?
The prairie planting only works with large scale open areas.
Well, I got veronicastrum out and helenium in ...without stamping on anything....
......and with the rudbekias in full flower, salvia uliginosa in full flower, frikartii monch flowering, anemone wild swan, leucanthemum broadway lights. (what a fresh treat this is) and cannas, grasses, and dahlias including twynings after eight, acteas now flowering, etc. etc. in this basically hellebore bed. ( they all grow in the spaces between the hellebores so very low maintenance) it's quite a show from my kitchen window. I have astilbes amd astrantias too here to associate with my hellebores when their time comes. Not a single annual there so colour there all year round from perennials
