Sunny Corner Bed

The Sunny Corner Bed Design by Kelly Schroeder.

This garden bed is designed to be tucked up against the corner of a fence or into a bright nook against the house.  Varieties are selected for optimum bloom time interspersed with bold foliage, texture and colour.  This garden will be a colourful delight all season long, from late spring until autumn.

The Heucherella will appreciate a little bit of protection from the hot sun otherwise its foliage may not be happy.  All other plants should tolerate full exposure well.
