The Diablo Border Heats Up

Here's a shot of the Diablo Border, so-named because of the "Diablo" ninebark that sits smack in the middle. We've worked carefully to make this, our sunniest border, also the spiciest. In order from left to right: hybrid hellebore, "Little Business" daylily (red flowers), Euphorbia griffithii 'Fireglow,' Papaver atlanticum, Libertia peregrins, Physocarpus opulifolius 'Diablo,' Sedum 'Angelina,' Uncinia unciniata 'Rubra,' gold and green oreganos, Anthriscus sylvestris 'Raven Wing,' Caryopteris x clandonensis 'Worcester Gold,' and orange Oriental poppies. Not yet blooming: a fringed red Oriental poppy. Just emerging: Dahlia 'Bishop of Landaff,' Melianthus major, Dahlia 'Robin Hood," and Lilium 'First Choice.'

It feels like summer already!
