My backyard is in Griffin, Georgia, one hour exterior of Atlanta.
Lots of my crops have been relocated from my backyard in Decatur, which is a metropolis quarter-hour from Atlanta. I had a backyard there for 36 years and dug up and transplanted two massive truckloads of crops a bit of over two years in the past. Virtually the whole lot survived and is flourishing, even a 42-year-old azalea plant that was given to me in a small pot as a present.
Very massive, very previous azaleas (Rhododendron hybrids, Zones 5–9) fill the area with spring coloration.
These love lies bleeding (Amaranthus caudatus, annual) have been planted from heirloom seeds. One thing ate the leaves, however the plant survived and flowered.
The meadow was planted in again of the property, the place a pine tree was lower down and the bottom was tilled. Right here, Queen Anne’s lace (Daucus carata, annual or biennial) blooms fantastically, with some purple flowers in addition to the standard white.
Queen Anne’s lace stems make a easy, stunning bouquet.
Have a look at these superior massive blackberries (Rubus hybrid, Zones 5–8)!
This morning glory (Ipomoea nil, annual) has delicate powder-blue flowers that shift to pink at their throat. Even higher, this selection has white variegation on the leaves, so it offers magnificence even within the afternoon when the flowers have pale.
