Re: link to Tricia's pictures.


Marge,
I love that little grass. I think I bought some and put it in a pot. I need to see if it made it and put it in the ground. So many little jobs that get pushed to the side.
Thanks for making me remember that Acorus gramineus. I am on my way outside right now to try to dig out the snowball bush.
Tricia

You're most welcome, Tricia...if you've already got a bunch of Aucuba
then I'd go ahead and move a couple of them over there; looks to me
like 3 ought to do the trick as they do get large with some time.
Looking at the long shot of that corner, you can see how the one
Aucuba you have there lights up the shade, so a group of them would
do that nicely.

To compliment the gold in the Aucuba leaf, while giving you a good
contrast in texture, you might consider using  Acorus gramineus
'Ogon' as a groundcover or edging plant in front of the shrubs.  It's
rated hardy to z6.  It's evergreen for me.  Totally no care plant
that looks good all year around.  Grows in damp spots or regular
garden beds...Chris has a very nice image of this on the hort.net

Behalf Of pdickson
Marge,
Thank you for the suggestion.  I have several small Aucuba's that I
got
on
such a great but I just put them under the edges of the pine.  I
could
probably move a couple of them over. I love the idea of the
brightness
that
would draw your eye to the dark corner.

This is great to be able to show you all pictures of my garden
problems
and
get such wonderful advice.
Thank you Donna for providing your service too.
Tricia
