RE: Spring at the Morgan's too!

Like Zem says, it does sound beautiful!  I wanted to put both the Joe Pye
Weed and the Oakleaf Hydrangea in the same bed.  The bed stretches between a
7 year old tulip tree and a plum on the other end about 30' apart.  What
would be the best spacing of the two plants, given neither of them are
mature plants?  Your arrangement sounds so lovely!  So, I think I'll move a
couple of my rudbeckia and my bee balm with a few iris into the new bed,

You will love the oak leaf hydrangea.  It also has wonderful winter
interest...give it plenty of room as it tends to spread out.  The
butterflies will love Joe Pye Weed...I have mine in the middle of a round
bed surrounded with bee balm, iris, Rudbeckia, and Russian sage.
