Planting Day 2016

We received some terrific plants from Plant Select® and had a great morning planting the garden thanks to the Summit County Master Gardeners. Plants are already blooming and it looks like it will be a fantastic summer for flowers in our gardens and on our hikes.

Echium amoenum

Red Feathers has been growing in the garden for 3 years now. It likes sunny, hot spots and when planted with pea gravel as a mulch is seeding itself around a bit.

Waiting Patiently

After 4 years, the Cashmere Sage let loose a blossom. Planted in 2008, it is growing in a shady spot under aspen trees, the plant has taken this long to become established. It's unique addition to the garden was worth the wait.
