Some weeding is needed to make room for my new Yucca filamentosa.
I pretty much need a blank slate to be able to get the spacing I want. I did find the Creeping Raspberry, Rubus calycinoides that was transplanted to this slope in the spring in all that Lush. It was still alive and had grown a bit.
The intent is to have the yuccas in a bed of Creeping Raspberry on this end. I'll have to keep weeding my way towards that. Bare dirt is a powerful invitation to the Lush.
Less weeding was involved at the other end. I had already done it.
Here the yucca will merge with Clematis stans, dianthus and iris.
The theory of more planted. I can picture them in a mass bloom of floral extravagance and when the world is completely barren, the yuccas will still be there.
I putter in the tall flower meadow with a theme in mind and no detailed plan. Something is happening.
*Some wildflowers were killed in the act of planting. I didn't plant a one of them so I know they will be back.
