Woodland Shade Gardening

Woodland shade gardening with a purpose – pleasure, creativity, rainwater collection!

East Border; & Green & White.

Wayside Garden’s spring catalog cover was all green & white – and it was incredibly beautiful.  It made me long for my own green & white area.  I was surprised, this spring, to realize I have little micro-areas of green & white.  I recently planted six White Gumpo azaleas, which are Satsuki azaleas.  They are dwarf, growing only 18-24″ tall with a mature spread of 36″.  So I am looking forward to seeing them bloom this year.  Satsukis bloom a little later than other azaleas, so their white blossoms won’t be part of the early green & white presentation.  I will definitely go back to Latham’s Nursery and buy some Azalea ‘White Gardenia’ variety, which I saw blooming there last week.  Then I can have a more intense presentation of green & white at this time each year.
