I post a lot about veggies, flowers, herbs because that's the questions we get, but the project dearest to my heart is my woodland shade garden, I'm creating on what used to be landfill/dump (literally!)
So I bought a bunch more plants, this time from Shooting Star Nursery. I am planting a burr oak, 2 sassafras trees (one of the commonest things in our local woods), 2 more paw paws (already have 3 but it is also one of the commonest things in natural local woods), an eastern white pine, a female winterberry (to replace one that died, still have the male one), kalmia, some more tiarella, aquilegia, and bearberry.
Some of what I already have: one huge old hackberry (the only native tree that was there), buckeyes, spicebushes, carolina allspice, clethera, red maple, silver maple, catalpa, scarlet oak, redbud. Solomon seal, false solomon seal, lots of celandine poppy (it spreads itself enthusiastically), cutleaf toothwort, appendaged waterleaf, wild ginger, lots of white snake root (too aggressive, I've pulled bales of it), black cohosh, hepatica, tiarella, goatsbeard, uvularia, and lots of spring ephemerals: virginia bluebells, three kinds of trillium, jack in the pulpit, trout lily, blood root, squirrel corn, twinleaf, bedstraw, spring beauty, and others.
