Purple Coneflower, Echinacea purpurea, (center) likes to grow in sun as well as light shade. In the natural world it is often found along woodland edges.


This is a busy garden. Some of the plants found here were grown especially for me from seed, such as the Lopseed, Phryma leptostachya (lower center). Interestingly, it is the only species in its genus.

This garden was in a quite shady location, but everything is alive and well -- and looks good. A shady place should be viewed as an opportunity to expand the diversity and plant selection in your garden.

The parkway garden is divided into north and south sections by a small walkway.

The large elm provides shade for both.

Beautiful neat Short's Aster Aster shortii blooms in a crisp blue eye-catching display.

Asters and Goldenrods bloom in the Fall.

The garden was designed so that the plants don't lean over onto the side walk.
