|Wild Iris Rows|
By Sharon, June 29, 2015
I stood on a little knoll and looked around me. It was like nothing I'd ever seen, acres and acres of color spread out like a treasured old patchwork quilt made of random shapes and sizes. It was pieced together with strips of green and shades of brown that gently covered the rolling hills. It was an iris farm and every plant seemed to be blooming in glorious color!

|More Than Just a Sea of Green|
By Paul2032, June 24, 2015
There was a time when the Hostas available to the average gardener were predominantly shades of green with an occasional one that was gold or bluish. That is not true today, as the work of some dedicated hybridizers and mutations from Mother Nature have given us a wider palette of hosta colors to choose from. Careful selection of some of the lovely cultivars available today can make the Hosta Garden something more than a sea of green.
|Add a Splash of Color to Your Hosta Garden|
By Paul2032, June 23, 2015
It goes without saying that tastes vary. Hosta purists might recoil at the addition of a strong primary color to the cool blues, greens, and golds in their garden. To others, including me, the judicious addition of a splash of strong color to a mature planting can add excitement and visual interest.
|Companion Plants for the Hosta Garden|
By Paul2032, June 22, 2015
Hostas come in a great variety of colors, sizes, forms, and textures. A shady bed featuring only a number of well-chosen Hosta cultivars can provide great visual interest, but the addition of some companion plants can add to the overall beauty and diversity.
|Hostas Are Wonderful in Containers|
By Paul2032, June 21, 2015
Planting some Hostas in containers can bring wonderful variety to the garden. It also allows plants to be enjoyed on a patio or other shaded area where they can't go directly into the ground. A potted plant can also bring interest to a bed of Hostas. Give it a try.

|Clematis Celebration Week Wrap Up|
By dave, June 12, 2015
Another great week of celebration is coming to a close. Let's have a look at some of the highlights from the week.
|The Importance of Pruning Clematises|
By goldfinch4, June 11, 2015
If you’ve ever seen a clematis that is one big mountain of tangled up stems, it’s almost enough to scare you away from growing them. But let’s take a look at why, when, and how these remarkable vines should be pruned and you’ll find it’s not as difficult as it seems.
|The Clematis Pronunciation Debate|
By grannysgarden, June 10, 2015
Since this is Celebrating Clematis Week, I thought I would pose a question to all regions that grow and love the plant. How do you pronounce the word "clematis"?
By zuzu, June 9, 2015
Clematises and roses are ideal companions. They grow well in the same types of locations, thrive in the same types of soil, require the same amount of watering, and respond equally well to the same fertilizers.
|Clematis - Dynamic Companion (Part 1)|
By Jasmin, June 8, 2015
We admire clematises because of the beauty of their flowers, but their dynamic nature, their rush to the top, and the sense of movement that they bring to the landscape offer much more to gardeners and admirers.
