The Hosta Border

The view from my main deck is especially lovely this time of year, as the Azalea 'Rosebud' shrubs come into bloom and the Hosta leaves unfurl themselves. I like to sit and watch the various birds who come to visit the bird bath, and to listen to the sweet sounds of nature. Shade Gardening can be so pleasurable when you work with it to optimize the conditions you've been given, and along this border I also grow Hellebores/Ferns/Lamium/Tiarella, as well as the shrubs Leucothoe 'Scarletta' and Deutzia 'Chardonnay Pearls'. I do not feel at all limited by the shade, and this is one of the most serene spots in the whole landscape.
