Sorry the picture quality is a little dark here. It's a shady garden and I'm finding it a little hard to photograph well.
My plan is for this to be very natural looking and have the hostas and ferns kind of 'spill over' on the walkway, here and there. For now I have black plastic garden edging along the right side to hold the soil and water in, but I'm hoping to be able to remove it (or have it covered up by foliage) before too long.
Along the right side are several types of hostas including Minuteman, Lancifloria, Longissima, Blue Mouse Ears, a couple of ferns (Frizelliae and Lady in Red) and some violets.
On the left side, between the walkway and the house, I have foxglove and monkshood, bee balm, bleeding heart, periwinke, bugleflower, lamina, and some hostas, including June, Golden Tiara, and Gold Standard.
I love how everything looks but I have no idea if I have too many or too few plants in here. With luck I might have just the right amount.
We will see.
