RE: Re: plants... the last of them for this year....


My Lespedeza by the end of the summer should be about 5' tall with a
spread of at least that.  It is a glorius plant in bloom.  Mine is
showcased by itself.  We've put in a small stone seating area on a knoll
that is backed by another rise in the ground where we've installed a 2'
stone retaining wall, into which we've integrated some architectural
elements rescued from a demolition site.  The Lespedeza is planted
behind that wall so that it can arc up and drape over.  Quite nice, it I
do say so myself.

Zone 7 - West TN

Ceres (or anyone),

How big is your Lespedeza? It has about a 4ft space alloted, although it
is small now. How fast does it grow?

The heuchera was a throw in, somehow it reminds me of a dieing plant.
Trying to pair it up with something, but nothing struck me as -- yep,
that will go nicely together. So those weho have it or seen it in a nice
setting, what did they use with it?
