Just the back yard!? Nah, I want the front and side yards landscaped in natives too.

It's No Joke

From today:

Before...


...and After:



I realize they look virtually the same...but at the time I wanted an after photo--I had just planted some wild geranium that I divided to spread into the woodland section I'm working on.  However, they have yet to sprout and are covered with soil.  Don't ask me why I felt the need to take an after shot! 

Maybe in a few weeks, after it has leafed out, I'll have a more dramatic after photo.

Here is what is (honestly) in the ground scattered among the rocks:

Great plant. I divided a bunch last year and didn't have anywhere to go with them, so they ended up being planted in a row in my native production area. They seemed a little slow to get established, but I'm hoping for a great year. From the looks of the site you chose I have a feeling they will do well there.

I think they should thrive there too. I have quite a few well-established plants added around the house. They should be easy to divide and spread.

When I grow them in the landscape they seem to get very bushy, but when I see them in the woods, they tend to be single plants. I'll just be happy to have them established and add a lot of others--I can imagine Hepatica on the ledge above the various rocks.
