    Great ideas for border plants. Thinking Zagreb for front walkway

  • j mcdonald

    The Best Plants for Sunny Borders - The egg-yolk yellow ‘Zagreb’ has displays a much sturdier constitution. The dense upright stems, thickly set with fine needlelike leaves, spread steadily by underground stolons into large patches, which need a bit of chopping back in the spring. I have clumps at intervals all along the front of my borders. I love its neat, shrubby appearance before/after bloom and abundance of bright yellow flowers starting early in July and persisting for weeks.
