What beautiful pictures and thanks for sharing. I grew up in Upstate NY and my grandma had the most beautiful lilace bushes. We can't grow them in Fl and I mis them very much. I can almost smell them now!!! Have a blessed evening and thanks again
What I miss MOST about no longer living on the Oregon Coast during my formative years are the rhodies. Oh, how I miss those! All the different colors, featured against those large, shiny green leaves! I understand azaleas are cousins to rhododendrons, but they are NOTHING compared to the Oregon coast rhodies.
You just made me homesick for a time gone past. But it's a warm, happy/sad feeling.
Lush, verdant beauty. Thanks for sharing with us. If I were to take pics of my backyard, you would be treated to deep holes dug by my GP, the inevitable chicken coop and a stack of lumber for adding onto the coop.
Thanks for a pictorial walk through a serene beautiful yard.
Candytuft is excellent, and is common around here in flowerbeds. It is a perennial, and spreads but not too quickly. You can fill a small space in a flowerbed in a few years, though, and it doesn't get very high- I would say 6-8 inches high.
I need to dig up some of mine and move it so I can have it in other places. I have mine in part shade (afternoon and morning shade). I have seen it planted in full sun though.
My mom has hers planted in full sun and it is doing well.
