New plants for 2010

Besides the Spicebushes and Alumroot I mentioned in my previous post, here are some other new plants in my garden for 2010.

White Bleeding Heart

Salvia 'East Friesland'

Variegated Jacob's Ladder 'Stairway to Heaven'

Bellflower (I think)
This isn't new, but it's the first year the rabbits haven't eaten it so it's new to me.

Dwarf Oakleaf Hydrangea (by the rock) &
Cimicifuga 'Chocoholic' to the left of the birdbath

Busy weekends

Making Pots

20 minute garden bed clean-up
(remove horrible ground cover, thin out plants, transplant hostas)

Plant 3 new spicebushes (Lindera benzoin)

Remove diseased boxwood. Replace with Alumroot.

Prune down massive Korean Spice Viburnums (and they still look huge)
