Now you see it.
I am determined that this year the Lush will not be allowed to run riot over the garden becoming. What has been planted will not be buried alive.
The process of selection by elimination has already covered significant ground.
I am afraid the tall flower meadow will have to removed in the crease of the sunny utility valley. It does not fit in with my garden plans.
I plan to see if I can get a river of Red Blood grass flowing. Imperata cylindrica 'Rubra' maybe. I am not sure of the cultivar. It was moved from a full sun dry slope where it just sat there barely surviving to a full sun wet crease where I hope it will bleed profusely.
Plants grow quite well here when they are not struggling with over zealous competition.
Still, I must be prepared for a wild look to things.
This is the front roadside bed where I have been able to exert the most influence over the last five years. It certainly has more flowers blooming than my neighbor's unmowed ditch across the byway. I can say that at least.
The untouched Lush is already head high near the end of June.
I have to be determined.
