Wild Hydrangea (Hydrangea arborescens) For a classic white garden flower, turn to wild hydrangea. This eastern U.S. native and its cultivars grace gardens across the country and around the world. These flowering perennials are actually considered pretty easy to grow, despite their delicate appearance, as they tolerate a wide range of soils and sun conditions. Since they flower on new wood, winter freezes don’t affect flowering. Cultivars like ‘Anabelle’, shown here, produce larger blooms, while the straight species is smaller and wilder in appearance. Caution: The leaves, buds and flowers are toxic to people and pets, and can be harmful if consumed in sufficient quantities. Bloom season: Late spring through much of summer Cold tolerance: Hardy to minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit, or minus 40 degrees Celsius (zones 3 to 9) Origin: Eastern Kansas east to southern New York in the north and Louisiana and northern Florida in the south Water requirement: Prefers moist (not wet) loamy soils Light requirement: Prefers partial sun but will tolerate full sun if given consistent moisture When to plant: In spring or fall in containers; plant divisions in early spring before the plant fully leafs...

Here is another variation: a lake of purple with a single bridge across it, made by planting waves of purple on either side of the path. Again, notice the grasses dotted throughout, giving structure to the planting. Without these accents, a mass planting simply looks like a formal mass of plants as opposed to a more natural and flowing form.

זה יכול להתאים לשולי הגינה לצד הכביש, איפה שיש שיפוע A parking strip by Lauren Springer at the Gardens on Spring Creek, in Fort Collins, Colorado, looks like a watercolor painting with swaths of lemon-yellow and lavender-purple blooms. Choosing a mix of bloom forms — such as the flat tops of yarrow, the flower spikes from a blooming yucca and the round globe thistles — offers more visual interest than planting a single flower form, and it contributes to a meadow-like look. Plants in this garden bed include: ‘Anthea’ yarrow (Achillea ‘Anthea’, zones 3 to 9) Blue allium (Allium caeruleum, zones 4 to 8) Adam’s needle (Yucca filamentosa, zones 5 to 10) ‘Munstead’ English lavender (Lavandula angustifolia ‘Munstead’, zones 5 to 9) ‘Shades of Mango’ pineleaf penstemon (Penstemon pinifolius ‘Shades of Mango’, zones 4 to 9) Water requirement: Low to moderate Light requirement: Full sun
While technically a bed bordering a Boston driveway rather than the street, this three-tiered combination by landscape architect Sean Papich featuring perennial purple coneflowers, tawny ornamental grasses and low-growing tufts of day lily foliage would also work as a sidewalk combination. The purple coneflowers are particularly long-blooming and, in combination with the tall ornamental grasses, will carry the garden through fall. Plants in this garden bed include: ‘Magnus’ purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea ‘Magnus’, zones 3 to 8) ‘Karl Foerster’ feather reed grass (Calamagrostis x acutiflora ‘Karl Foerster’, zones 4 to 9) ‘Stella de Oro’ day lily (Hemerocallis ‘Stella de Oro’, zones 4 to 9), after blooming Water requirement: Moderate Light requirement: Full sun
Right plant, right place is the golden rule for gardening.

Sweetbay (Magnolia virginiana) Native to the eastern coastal U.S., from eastern Massachusetts south to Florida and west to Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas Loved by: Donald Pell in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania Why this tree: “I love the versatility of this plant,” Pell says, adding that it’s easy to prune and can be planted close to patios or walkways. “I love the romantic experience we can create with gardens, and this plant allows for some of this interaction without feeling too wild.” Special features: The creamy white flowers produce a delicate citrus aroma from spring into summer; the slightly translucent leaves cast moderate shade. Growing tips: “This plant is intolerant of anaerobic soils and prefers drainage, especially in wet winters, but it is extremely versatile,” Pell says. “Once established, this plant generally will need little care.” Where it will grow: Hardy to minus 15 degrees Fahrenheit, or minus 26.1 degrees Celsius (zones 5 to 10) Water requirement: Low (but the plant is often found in swampy sites) Light requirement: Full sun to partial shade Mature size: Up to 35 feet tall and wide
Purple prairie clover (Dalea purpurea, zones 3 to 9) is a midsummer-blooming plant that brings in the insects like nothing else. At just a foot to 2 feet tall and wide, it thrives in drier soils in full to partial sun. There's also a white clover, Dalea candida, if you like to moon garden (don't moon the garden; I mean if you like white flowers at night when the celestial moon is out).
Pale purple coneflower (Echinacea simulata, zones 5 to 8) is one of the earliest-blooming coneflower species — if you don't have several of the species, you're missing a great diversity of blooms over a much longer time than what just E. purpurea can give you. What makes E. simulata unique is the very bright yellow pollen. This coneflower likes dry to medium clay soil and full to partial sun; it gets 2 to 3 feet tall and 1 foot wide.
לקנות את זה אם האדמה מתאימה If you need height and structure, let me introduce you to the drought-tolerant shrub southern arrowwood (Viburnum dentatum, zones 3 to 8). It’s covered in white blooms in May; late summer brings a flush of blue berries birds adore; and the fall color is bright red, yellow or orange, depending on the cultivar. It also is a host plant for several caterpillar species. It thrives in dry to medium clay in full to partial sun, getting to about 6 feet tall and wide after eight years, and it will reach a bit taller after that.
Blue Atlas Cedar Fence “Weeping forms of blue atlas cedar bring a unique sculptural quality and brilliant color wherever they are planted. They are equally at home in Asian gardens and contemporary ones. In my own garden, I created a living fence with five weeping specimens (C. atlantica ‘Glauca Pendula’), as shown here. If you purchase weeping specimens while they’re young, you can remove them from their stakes and reconfigure them.”
If you are able to provide the correct amount of soil, sun and water, your micro garden will thrive. You don’t need much space – vegies and herbs can be grown in anything, as long as there are adequate drainage holes. Herbs and vegetables can grow on a windowsill, a vertical garden on your balcony, and even a jar of seeds can sprout on your kitchen bench

Honeysuckle (Lonicera spp.) These fast-growing climbers are excellent vines for quickly covering a pergola or the walls of an enclosed courtyard. The blossom colors range from creamy white and pale yellow to hot coral and fiery red-orange; all are favorites of hummingbirds. Coral honeysuckle (L. sempervirens), shown here, is native to the East Coast from Connecticut west to Ohio and Oklahoma, and south to Florida and Texas. Some varieties, such as purple-leaf Japanese honeysuckle (L. japonica ‘Purpurea’), have reddish stems and leaves with a plum-tinted underside. Japanese honeysuckle and other honeysuckles are considered invasive in some areas. It’s best to check with a local nursery before bringing any into your garden, and do not plant close to open space. Where it will grow: Hardiness varies by species; many range from minus 25 degrees Fahrenheit, or minus 31.7 degrees Celsius, to 25 degrees Fahrenheit, or minus 3.9 degrees Celsius (zones 4 to 9). Water requirement: Moderate Light requirement: Full sun to light shade Mature size: Varies by species; many are more than 20 feet tall and wide

Incorporate more native plants for wildlife. Insects need native plants to lay their eggs on so caterpillars have something to eat. Might I suggest milkweed as a good starting point? There are 144 native to North America.
Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum) There’s no question that Japanese maples are beautiful, with colorful leaves in spring and fall, and graceful bare trunks in winter (some even have colorful trunks). With so many different varieties available, the secret is choosing the right one for your patio. As a rule, the common green-leaf species (Acer palmatum) tolerates more sun and heat (which can accumulate on a paved patio) better than varieties with fancy or colorful leaves; the common green one also tends to grow faster and taller. USDA zones: 5 to 8 Water requirement: Moderate Light requirement: Full sun in cool-summer climates; partial shade during the hottest part of the day in most areas Mature size: 15 to 25 feet high and 10 to 25 feet wide, depending on variety Growing tips: Choose your plant in spring or fall to get the desired foliage color. Provide well-drained soil with plenty of organic matter. Burned tips of leaves indicate sunburn (provide more shade) or damage from salts in water (flood the root zone with water).
