A Shady Corner under the Redbud Tree

Grass leaved goldenrod, Aster linarifolius, “Velvet Elvis” plectranthus. The last, new to me this year, is an outstanding shade plant. I will winter it over inside. It blooms in late summer., when it senses the seasonable wane of daylight hours.

Another view of “Velvet Elvis”, flanked by Wax begonias and “Diamond Frost” euphorbia. Proof that shade can be more than hostas. Shade blooming perennials yet to bloom are Japanese Spurflower ( Isodon effusis) and hardy Salvia glabrescens “Momobama”.
