Get the Look: Irregular Greens

I am on the fence about calling these posts “get the look.” It is more of a plant ID compared with a recommendation for how to plant for a similar design. While I think of a better title, here is a image that gets a lot of interest on Pinterest. The planting structure reflects the irregular shapes of the flagstone walkway, giving it a planned naturalistic look. This planting combination could work in zones 6-9 and maybe in particular zone 5 locations where the plants would be protected.  I’m not what it is about the garden, but it is very calming.  The dark house color really helps the greens and silvers to pop….


Original Image from Karl Gercens’ Flicker Page (here).  The description only notes CT private garden, but I am doing additional research to see if I can find more about homeowner and/or landscape designer.

Peonies Lately…

Central Ohio, Ohio, Peonies, Pinterest, Plants, Redtwig Farms

I have been busy lately with peonies from our production fields for our floral farm, Redtwig Farms. We may have flooded the central Ohio market with fresh peonies, and next year we will have even more! Below are photos of the actual peonies we grew in our fields. It is amazing each morning to see number of buds we harvest.

I will be back soon with normal landscape/design posts soon. May is already the busiest time of year for us and adding the peony production to the list I have had no time to write.
