The bush to bind them all


We are doing our landscaping finally and purchased a few plants I thought would go together. My wife thinks they clash and so I was wanting to find a plant that brought them all together.

The front of my house where I am landscaping. In the middle is where I want to put the 2 plants (same plant, just 2 of them). They will be the entrance to my door so I wasn't something that brings everything I'm planning together, something that isn't too tall (3 or so foot tall).

I'm planting Carmel Coral Bell in front of a Japanese Painted Fern. Those are really going to be what people see but then the smaller plants are different collors of day lilies along with hostas.

My wife says that the Bell and Fern are too much of a fall color and that the other flowers would stand out to much. I need something that will help here.

We need some pictures to get an idea of what you're dealing with. Without them we are just flying blind.

What you do is, say "YES DEAR, what do you think should be placed there."

Do it and never remind her when in a few weeks she says " maybe you were right".

Re: The bush to bind them all


Whatever you plant, make sure you plant them at least 3' from the house. Nothing is as bad as having to dig up bushes that are growing up against your house in a couple of years. Give them room to spread out. Note the mature size of the plant and judge your planting location accordingly. It may look funky at first, but it will grow properly.
