Looking to add a bit of "wow" to your late-spring garden? Consider this high-impact pairing of Olympiade weigela (Weigela florida 'Rubidor') and 'Caesar's Brother' Siberian iris (Iris sibirica). [The Office Borders at Linden Hill Gardens in Ottsville, PA]
'Axminster Gold' Russian comfrey (Symphytum x uplandicum 'Axminster Gold') grows in eye-catching clumps of lush, yellow-and-green leaves, creating a stunning accent in the border. It's difficult to find but worth the hunt! [The Cottage Garden at Linden Hill Gardens in Ottsville, PA]
A short, vertical stone on the edge or corner of a border creates an interesting accent all year round. It serves a practical purpose too, preventing damage to your plants when you are dragging hoses around to water. [Linden Allee Border at Linden Hill Gardens in Ottsville, PA]
