We are SLOWLY adding new plants to our not so pretty landscaping.
I LOVE to buy perennials on clearance.
They’re usually pretty ugly looking in the store, but come next year.. WOW, they look great.
So far, we’ve been able to purchase quite a few Caladium’s on sale.
My hubby REALLY likes these plants and I’m starting to find them pretty nice myself.
I was also able to pick up some Purple Heart (Setcreasea purpurea).
It doesn’t look like much now, but I’ve seen this around town and it will eventually make a beautiful ground cover.
The Purple Heart will eventually be across most of the front of the house, but first we need to remove the Sago Palm.
I don’t know why someone planted this in the front of the house.
It just keeps getting bigger and bigger, so we’re going to transplant to a better place in the yard.
When we moved into our home, back in March, we were thrilled to find LOTS of Crape Myrtles in the yard.
We just had no idea what color they were… until now..
A beautiful light purple.. the exact color the Hubster was hoping for.
So there we go.. A little here.. a little there..
I can’t WAIT till the fall….
Watch Out Yard.. When Cooler weather hits.. we’ll going CRAZY with landscaping!
Happy Gardening everyone…
