Not everyone is a landscape designer at heart, that’s why pre-planned gardens were invented.
Thanks to garden centers, like High Country Gardens in Santa Fe, design-challenged gardeners can have a blooming beautiful garden by placing an order and following a planting diagram.
The Summer Dreams garden, is a pre-planned garden perfect for a sunny 5′ x 5′ space. Designers selected low-maintenance perennials that work well in just about any type of soil.
Plants in this assortment include Blue Fortune Hyssop (Agastache ‘Blue Fortune’), Fireworks Goldenrod (Solidago rugosa ‘Fireworks’), Goldstrum Black Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia ‘Goldsturm’), Purple Cone Flower (Echinacea purpurea), Rozzane Perennial Geranium (Geranium ‘Rozzane’), and Meadow Blazing Star (Liatris ligulistylus).
In addition to summer beauty, the perennials in this selection are designed to attract bees and butterflies to the garden.
Pre-planned gardens like these take the guesswork out of what to plant and where to plant it. Planting diagrams and care sheets are usually included in the package.
