On the far side of the Apple Tree Border, under the apple-tree itself, is a small pink hydrangea. It is in the company of some pretty variegated hostas, or plantain lilies.
These species hostas start to unfurl in early spring, and they last for weeks and weeks. I'm lucky that Mooseys is a relatively snail-free garden, though!
Forget-Me-Nots With Hosta
I allow blue forget-me-nots to self-seed in this garden - well, everywhere in my garden, to be truthful. They make such a pretty backdrop to the hosta spring foliage.
This blue green hosta clump is due for dividing. It is one of the original texture plantings in the Apple Tree Garden.
In this early photograph, a Cream Delight flax and a patch of Iris Japonica contrast with the hosta leaves. The yellow leafed shrub is a young Choisya Sundance.
