Love your pictures. I've planted alliums for the first time this year and I love them! But I need to find something to plant with them and I love how you have some silvery foliage planted with them in your adventure garden. Is it silvermound? Love them with the geraniums too!


I agree the garden looks great. I have tried to grow Lily of the Valley a couple of times, but it doesn't seem to work for me. Do you have any tips?

Lily of the valley?  Really?  Hmmm.  Thats a tough one.  It should be easy to grow once established, and it likes dry shade.  So the possible problems could be that you didnt water it enough to get it established, or perhaps in its location it gets too much moisture or sun...?  My patch is established and a very dry, shady spot (under a spruce tree and under the eaves of the house on the north east corner!).  I literally do nothing to it.  Nothing.

Hi Kim,
I love the alliums too.  Every fall I plant more.  My girls love them too and pick them for magic wands after theyre finished flowering!
Yes, thats silvermound in the adventure garden.  Thanks for your comments!
