I was looking at a picture of last summer's front border, and thinking: alchemilla mollis between the hosta and the kerria. Obviously.
Just didn't want to forget that.
Also, two attempts at West Bed design-- from left to right, that tiny thing left would be a New Jersey Tea, followed by a Pink Velour crapemyrtle, then three nice foliage-intensive shrubs that I cannot possibly make up my mind on, then the Dragonlady Holly, and tree on the left is the closest approximation I could find to the Sweetbay Magnolia actually planted there.
The one below is a doctored winter shot. Confusing, huh?
The important elements are the crapemyrtle and the three shrubs to be named. The other stuff just has to be nice perennials that won't make me crazy.
