More on Easy Going Perennials

Hello Everyone

I just want to share a picture with you of the gloriously bright yellow “gas station” day lilies. I took this picture on a road trip through Ohio. As you can see this is  a mass planting, which really catches your eye.  The color and the flower are cheerfully stuck in the middle of all that concrete.  A perfect spot for a perennial (comes back every year) that needs no fertilizer or water once established.

Look through the last post on Easy Going Perennials to see how you can incorporate the Day Lily into your garden designs. They come in more colors than yellow! Oh yes they do!

I received my certification as a Landscape Designer from Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois and I received my horticulture education through classes at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois and through the master gardener program at Univ of Illinois Extension. In my designs, I love mixing veggies and herbs with native perennials and flowering bushes as you can see from the pictures of my own yard. I love creating gardens for people who like to garden, not just installing traditional landscaping, but actually creating gardens that the homeowner connects to personally. I love that my clients who thought they couldn't grow anything now have green thumbs, because all it takes is the right plant in the right site. And I really love that my clients become my friends in the process of creating their gardens.
