A Home on the North Side of Chicago
The parkways were planted in context with the rest of the front yard. The whole area was bathed in the shade of a large elm tree which we limbed up.
The bright blue flowers are Short's Aster, Aster shortii.
A stone birdbath is hidden amongst the wide dark green leaves of Spikenard, Aralia racemosa -- a large herbacious plant often mistaken for a shrub.
Elm-leaved Goldenrod, Solidago ulmifolia, and the unique seedheads of Doll's Eyes, Actaea pachypoda.
A healthy "shade garden" does best with some sunlight dancing on the plants.
