new patio & my new hosta's - pic heavy

kcmojoe(6)August 16, 2007

So I have my new patio as posted in a previous thread.

I have planted the wisteria on my arbor, and an Oklahoma Redbud between the walkway and the patio. Recently I bought 5 new Hosta's (my Hosta Virginity is officially broken) and planted them betwen teh house and patio. here are some pics.

Love the organic feel of the patio and your hostas have beautiful variations in color. I, too, have just planted my first hostas (along my new stark white PVC fence); some store-bought and some freebies from my sister's garden. None with the vibrant blue-green colors I see in yours (the 3rd one pictured). What is the name of that one? I can't quite make out what the plant marker says.

I am jealous of your arbor...I have been wanting one for quite some time. Maybe next Spring.

Congratulations on a job well done!!

Thanks for the info. I will be on the lookout for that "June" one.

Keep posting pix as your project moves forward. I love to see the process from start to finish...then again, is anything ever really FINISHED in the garden???

Ok, I have since done a lot of work to the patio, although it doesnt appear like much. I should have some pictures for updates this week. The additions include a tree, some hyacinths, some lirope, some Globemaster Alliums, Plox, Naked Ladies (name??), a Balloon plant. If you notice, nowhere in there did I mention the moss between rocks.... thats because I had a minor setback. All of my mulch was washing down into the patio blocking out all sun to the moss and killing it. I have corrected (I think) that issue and you will see it in the pictures I post this week.
