Plant suggestions please

Posted: 09/06/2012 at 09:52

Hi,How about Acontium and Actaea  towards the middle and back of the bed to contrast with the euonymous fortunei, Alstroemeria 'Apollo' to tie into the variegation on the euonymous fortunei. Crocosmia George Davison to add leaf contrast and stunning yellow flowers to tie into the yellow on the Apollo. Asters towards the front to give colour and contrast in flower shape and Autumn interest. Astrantia maxima towards the front to tie into the colours of the Bergenia and and Geranium Sambor for ground cover at the front or <span dir="auto">Alchemilla mollis to ground the design.

Without seeing the tree it is hard to tell wether it is viable or not. I think the weather is affecting not just trees but a lot of plants this year.  I have a client that planted a beautiful Robinia a couple of years ago and although it had a great year last year, it is not looking too good this year. Give it until the end of May to see if it improves. However,  I echo marshmello's comments that if it is in any way dangerous it needs to be addressed immediately.

Ideas for a 2 Meter Wide Planter Box

Hi does the planter face north south east or west and is sheltered or exposed? This will affect which plants will thrive and give you curb appeal.
