Plants for moist shade / wet: garden designers Roundtable

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

Gardening in the wet can be difficult enough without the added challenge of the shadows. While the usual suspects in these conditions – ferns, iris, astilbe and hosta – they are beautiful, if you are looking for a more interesting planting or architectural significance, it can be difficult to find suitable varieties. Here are six underutilized plants for shady sites, which are a little wet or muddy.

Dogwood Winter Fire, “Fire of the winter solstice of” Comus, shines in the darkness some swamp. Stems golden orange tip standing bravely against evergreens in winter and summer is a shrub with small but interesting green foliage.

That reaches 5 feet tall and wide, and should be pruned every year to encourage lots of new stems to grow as new stems are colorful. Simply remove 1 / 3 of the oldest stems at the base of each year to maintain in good condition.

You can cut the stems of flowers or a vase for an elegant look to himself. (Hardy zone 5)

Spice bush, Calycanthus occidentalis, is a shrub native of California who prefers partial shade and grows to 8 ‘tall and wide. In full shade, his habit Twining little ‘more and it is a good candidate for espaliering, while the bright spots, it forms a shrub robust.

The flowers have a powerful aroma than a barrel of wine – a fruity scent and musk, with hints of oak. The contrast between the flowers and green leaves are a welcome addition to forest land are many shade-tolerant plants have flowers in pastel colors. Its leaves smell of spices and crushed herbs, the quality of the deer find the most unfortunate. (Hardy zone 7)

Spiny Bear buttocks, Acanthus spinosus, is a bright dark green leaves with spiny tips. If you’re tired of Bear buttocks mollis, Acanthus is a species much more interesting than that is just as easy to grow.

It reaches 2-3 ‘tall and wide, and in the summer, passing a Blossoms bold purple and black to rise above the foliage. Making long-term cut flowers and a vase. And ‘happy in its entirety in the shade, and it seems very close to water features and urns. Just do not put up a path next to it! (Hardy zone 6)

Hardy Impatiens, Impatiens omeiana is an easy, spreading ground cover with a hint of red on stems and a dash of bold variegation down in center of each leaf.

While I have never personally seen them bloom, are said to have an orchid-like yellow flowers late summer, highlighting the cream-gold veins on each plant.

Reach approximately 1 “high, 2″ wide. (Hardy zone 6)

Sparkler star, “flare” Carex phyllocephala, shade is a versatile plant that are wet and dry soil with ease. It looks like a bamboo plant, which erupted in fireworks and what we see is only the foliage, not flowers.

Until we burn in direct sunlight, creamy white stripes make a great show with various other systems or against the green plants or silver. Reaches about 2 feet tall and wide. (Hardy to zone 7.)

‘Red’ Red Hook Sedge Uncinia uncinata Halloween is my new crush plant. It needs partial shade or dappled with ease, and the late summer of this beautiful flower spikes that are dark brown all the bad sides of the leaves bright orange.

These may reseed in the garden but the plants are not too numerous and are easy to remove, so I consider them a benefit (plants for free!) Rather than a parasite. 18 “high. (Hardy to zone 8.)

Nice plants! I’ve added my shade garden Uncini two years ago (he had never seen, I bought on a whim) and it’s beautiful! It typically receives half of the court conditions: all the shades, so that the midday sun, so all the colors back and is thriving with moderate water. I have been so successful Carex ‘glittering’, which I added to my pocket wool on the wall. It seems that at least part of the leaves are always brown, but may also be due to more stressful circumstances, I am still in

I love how thorough you are with descriptions, Gen!

I Site: their pits and change the basic situation

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

This year will go down as the do-or-die dig a marathon. Remember these four reasons I have promised to tame and plant this summer? Here it is mid-July, and then some, and I still have it.

The first four were by far the easiest. This can be a good thing, therefore, stood in the growing season was more than half. Of course, can be a disagreement as to how easy it was to work at the mine’s brother can be tilted to point out, that can be called simply because I did most of the work. Do not listen to him.

Parcel 1 was the last (six) to be tamed in a garden of the owners had left. They have simply been too busy to garden, and several seasons back, they said that I could not have if I only deal with weeds. Here is what he looked like when I started.

Over the last six plots – one on the left under the hoops white – was a hit and goes further in April, when my brother-in-law Jeff was visiting. Even if he dug, I sifted the earth, weeds, and referred to the site, where Jeff is amended compost, fertilizer, and the tree Duff. (I’m sure it will never happen in April.) When we finished, I do not belong in March with black plastic to prevent weeds and we would be required for the course. Then it started to rain. A huge truck in March was to gather at the north end of the field, waiting for me to sift through the roots of weeds, particularly creeping Bellflower. I do not know of a couple of weeks later, but the dirt (it does not really deserve the name “earth”) was so heavy and wet, it will stick to everything. In fact, I do not remember to do something so vile, disgusting, and Gucky since kindergarten.

I was a camp counselor in my distant youth, and summer, it rained all the first session of two weeks. We played a lot of Winkum this session, and we also spent a lot “of time on a mudslide in the lake

I look in the spring, trying to go through that pile of dirt in the roots of Bellflower, was not very different from what it was that long ago summer, after one hour in the mud. Except for one detail: in the summer runoff, may have liked, but at least it was hot, and we run on our bathing suits.

Not so in Montana in April: I had a full rain suit, I scrape a few pounds of mud before entering. My boots (! Thank God for rubber) held an inch around the edge of heavy clay, I do not know what kind of animal my proposed steps. As for the gloves, which were so covered with mud, I had a hard time shaking the roots when they came upon them.

After a session or two of this activity is pretty ugly, I got the message: it was not worth the time. It would be much easier to do later in the season, after the earth dried. He did not have to happen now. Thus, in a rare good sense and maturity, I gave up.

Now that my abrupt departure forced the norm could not be implemented right away, I could not just go away. But instead of looking for every little root thread, I decided to exterminate the biggest criminals, the biggest, most obvious carrot roots the size of Bellflower. Then went to move a bunch of ugly in my neighbor’s house to mine. Not because I love to look at piles of wet dirt, but because these people telling me to grow vegetables on their land, the least I can do is (sometimes) clean up the mess myself. In addition, sitting on a heap of room for carrots and peas. It was a way.

So I started to come off the remaining dirt. That the land was so wet, I could fill about half a wheel Barrow, and even then I hesitated, and wove my way through the alley, grunts and groans as I struggled to hang in the trees my gloves slippery. Eventually, however, it all dumped on my pile of earth, out of sight behind the lilacs.

Undoubtedly, the flower is crazy there, but at least the plot is now available and planted, mainly potatoes, but there is a slight edge, experimental peas and carrots. The rain continued for so long and so hard after the pope came I feared that putrefaction, so that the ground covered with plastic. The extra heat generated during the fifteen or so minutes of sun that we were getting every day would be good for plants.

He seems to have worked out: how the photo at the top of the page shows, the potatoes are just starting to bloom and lush. The photograph is not the carrots and peas all over the perimeterl, but they are too long.

So thank you, Jeff. This week, help gave me the kick I needed to go to the garden this spring.
