We are trying to figure out what to plant here:There use to be four Boxwood bushes here (green and growing) and even though it goes against my personal policy to never remove anything green that grows on it's own without any more assistance from me than remembering to turn the sprinklers on, Husband and I both agreed that it would open up the front of our house to replace them with something less imposing and...well...less boxy.
Only now... we don't know what to choose. Our first problem, not being plant people, is that we aren't very familiar with the names of different plants. I so admire those people who can look at a plant and say, "Oh...that's a non-flowering Dwarf Gableroot and it looks like a male from what I can tell." If you are one of these people, please come over and tell me what all this green stuff is and whether I should let it stay or not!
Husband likes tall flowing grasses like this that remind him of sea grasses and the ocean:
I like things with color other than "grass green" and texture like what-ever-this is called:Both of these plants are native plants that we found on our Spring Walkabout but I don't know what they are called. I like the tall grasses too and I am wondering if we could do a mixture. We also want to add some color and texture with flowers. This area gets full on sun from about 11 AM until sunset. Any suggestions?
OH.....and speaking of "grass green" remember this? Well look at it now!Amazing what a little hard work and 11 inches of rain can do!
