Photos of my garden. What to plant next?
Here are some photos of my back garden, which i'm pleased with just at the moment, along with a quandary as to what plant to choose next. First, the best bits: Dranunculus vulgaris: Dicksonia antarctica: Just for a complete contrast, Crocosmia foliage: Brugmansia "Sunset": The more shaded border, with Arisaema consanguineum in front of Meconopsis x sheldonii, Hosta "Halcyon", Lobelia cardinalis "Queen Victoria", Brunnera, Iris, Magnolia and Gunnera manicata at the back. The sunny border, with marigolds, eschscholzia and canna foliage: Now the quandary. I'd like to grow Colocasia Esculenta "Black Magic" at the front of the more shaded border, with either a variegated grass or a fuchsia just behind it, for a strong contrast. Any ideas which one? Miscanthus would be hardy, but a bit too fluffy for an exotic themed border, whereas the other one I liked, Arundo Donax "Versicolor", looks better, but snuffs it at the first sign of frost, which the garden always gets in winter. Fuchsias I don't know a thing about, except that they look a bit overfamiliar to me. Ideas, experiences, comments, anyone?
