Heuchera Georgia Peach. Pronunciation: hew-ker-uh/ hew'ker-el-uh Panicles of pendant, bell-shaped flowers appear to float above the ground on long, thin stems.

Heuchera Georgia Peach

In shades of pink, red, white, green, and purple, the flowers are beloved of hummingbirds and lovely in arrangements. Many varieties are grown mainly for their foliage; recent hybridizing efforts have expanded the available leaf colors from shades of green to silver, chartreuse, orange, and nearly black. We include x Heucherella here, which is a cross between Heuchera and Tiarella. Please note: So plants may properly establish before winter, we are limiting fall shipping of Heuchera and × Heucherella to Zones 6–9. Cotinus coggygria 'Ancot'

Hakonechloa macra Aureola

Keep their foliage for winter effect, cutting back all except the evergreen varieties (Festuca) before new growth emerges in the spring. Refresh Festucas by "raking" out the dried and dead leaves with gloved fingers. Two varieties thrive in part or even full shade, expanding the possibilities for Grasses in the garden. Hakonechloa is suitable in part shade and Carex (Sedge) thrives in part to full shade. Both need soil that stays evenly moist. Transplant and divide in spring. Fertilize ornamental grasses in spring with a balanced fertilizer. Ornamental Grasses appear to be quite deer-resistant. Heucherella Alabama Sunrise.

Light/Watering: These compact plants flower well in full sun to part shade in the North, but need at least afternoon shade in warmer climates. Fertilizer/Soil and pH: Fertile soils rich with organic matter will keep these plants at their best, but good drainage is essential, especially in winter. Great Plant Picks. Enkianthus perulatus.

It is a relatively rare form of anise with chartreuse gold foliage, and the leave color intensifies in the fall to provide the ultimate glow in the garden. Anise is a dependable broadleaf evergreen shrub. Upright to pyramidal in shape, 'Florida Sunshine' should grow 6 to 8 feet tall by 4 to 6 feet wide. Its golden leaves distinguish it from other types of anise. The foliage is gorgeous throughout the year, but it especially shines on dreary winter days.

Bluestone Perennials. Schizophragma Rose Sensation. Hydrangea serrata Blue Billow. Pronunciation: hye-dran'jee-uh This variable group is beloved for its delicate clusters of papery flowers, borne between July and September depending on the variety. Some types are shrubby while others are more treelike; all bring a stately, old-fashioned feel to the landscape. Most grow quite quickly under good culture, and are long-lived. Most Hydrangea macrophylla flowers on old wood, and so must carry its flower buds through the winter. Early or late freezes may damage flower buds, and these buds also have a low survival rate in colder climates. Climbing Hydrangea (H. anomala petiolaris) will grow and flower even in a northern exposure.

Birdbaths, by Diane Porter.

Kindness is a birdbath Sometimes fresh, clean water is hard for a bird to find. You can make a bird's day simply by offering a drink and a bath. Parent birds will often bring their babies to the bath after they fledge and show them where it is. Like the baby robin getting its first bath. Ceramic Outdoor Birdbath Fountain - "Feather Spray" Bird Baths Fountains - DIY 1 of 4. Hudson fountain cistern. I placed this 19th century American cast iron fountain in a client’s existing terrace pool 6 years ago.

Last fall, she was ready for a change. A rectangular pool much larger than the original circular pool was installed, and a steel surround was built to finish that new pool. The overgrown boxwood was removed, and additional stone was added to the terrace. A picture frame opening was left in the stone, and planted this spring with isotoma fluvialitis. The steel surround was painted in much the same color as the original fountain. Working with color outdoors is challenging. A darker brown-black coat was applied over the blue, to tone it down. I sanded the entire surface of the fountain at this point, to bring some of the blue back up, remove some of the black, and expose some of the cream-white of the original color.

The sanded version has a lot of contrast-more contrast than what I wanted. The sanding brought color contrast to the surface. Over the gray wash, a darker, gray/brown wash. Bigleaf Magnolia. The Bigleaf Magnolia is a medium-size deciduous tree notable for its very large leaves and flowers. The giant leaves can grow up to 30 inches long and the flowers can be a foot wide.
