Pam’s Pennsylvania Garden – FineGardening
My title is Pam Zimmerman and I’m a gardener at State School, Pennsylvania (Zone 5b).
I’ve been gardening on this home since 2006. I’ve shade in entrance of the home and solar within the again gardens. I’m challenged by black walnut timber alongside the again of my property and deer roaming my yard. I’m planning on doing extra experiments with native crops to draw extra birds and pollinators and since I’ve discovered that many native crops survive close to black walnut timber.
In Might, one in every of my backyard beds sported a bearded iris. (Iris hybrid, Zones 3–8) initially from my aunt’s backyard and transplanted through the years from different gardens in different houses. The remainder of the mattress remains to be inexperienced, ready to flower.
The identical mattress in early July featured the Shasta daisy (Leucanthemum × superbum ‘Becky’, Zones 5-9) and coreopsis (Coreopsis verticilata ‘Moonbeam’, Zones 3–9) in full bloom.
By the top of July, Shasta daisy and coreopsis started to fade, however backyard phlox (Phlox paniculata, Zones 4–8), hydrangeas (Hotrangea paniculata ‘Limelight’, Zones 3-8), dahlia (Dahlia ‘Debra Renae’, Zones 8–10 or as tender bulb), Russian sage (Sage yangii, Zones 5–9). I like to start out some annuals from seed or seedlings in giant pots after which transplant them into the backyard the place there are naked patches after the perennials have completed flowering. I proceed to “lay” the crops all summer season. Right here you may see annual zinnias (Zinia elegans), snapdragons (Antirrhinum majus) and white angelonia (Angelonia angustifolia).
sage (Salvia nemorosa, Zones 3–8) with purple thorns bloom subsequent to a cheerful bunch of chives (Allium schoenoprasum, Zones 4–8).
peonies (Paeonia hybrid, Zones 3–8) take middle stage with vibrant flowers, their heat coloration echoed by the opposite crops round them.
In early summer season, the container of annuals echoes the flowers of perennials within the flowerbeds behind them.
On this tapestry of flowers, vibrant lantana (Lantana camara, Zones 9–10 or annual) echoes the brilliant colours of the massive daylily (daylily hybrid, Zones 3–9) behind him.
