Back to the topic of this post............I have been wandering around the gardens digging up pieces of ajuga to put around the new front steps garden.
I think a nice thick mat of this live combination of green and purpley-bronze ground cover will work much better in this area
than any other mulch. The purple ajuga leaves will go nicely with the purple Ninebark leaves.
O.K. back to the rockwall garden which I say, with all the modesty I can muster, looked gorgeous in that first picture. Remember that was 5 years ago. If gardens do anything, they change. That picture had a lot of creeping phlox blooming around the ajuga. Unfortunately the creeping phlox became infested with grass and I just could not keep up with it. Last year I made the sad decision to kill it all off. I have been working on its death since June.
Here is a recent picture--grab that Kleenex and give it to me as I shed a few tears.......
