Unintentional Garden Theme!
The Bleeding Hearts are thriving in spite of the heavy rain and winds we've had in my part of England for the last few days; one is even still putting out new buds which I'm really pleased about! Yesterday my fiance presented me with a beautiful Rose bush called Waltz Time, which was promptly soaked for an hour and planted in the border. I keep looking at this little twig and trying to imagine it as a rose bush in full bloom. I'm expecting some blooms this year but it's gone into the ground a little late so am aware that I won't see the full benefit until next season. As for the unintentional theme; my partner also presented me with six Chinese Lanterns, so along with the Bleeding Hearts it seems that in the Summer my garden border will have more than a slight touch of the Oriental about it! I still intend to plant out some King of Hearts and the Lupins are nearly ready to go out there. The Lobelia is doing well, but I really do need some more perennial ground cover. Any suggestions please? I'd like something pretty but non-invasive that won't tangle its roots around everything else and choke my rose bush! ETA: Never mind; the postman has just delivered a package from a friend of mine, with more ground cover and tall plant seeds than I even have space for right now!
