Joy Creek Nursery. Plants were purchased and placed.
For future reference, here is the list of plants we've planted and planned for the space:
- Adiantum x tracyi (maidenhair fern). This plant will act like a groundcover and spread. We only bought 2 because they weren't in the original plan. We put them out there and to see how they do in the spot.
- Ajuga reptans 'Catlin's Giant' (bugleweed) for groundcover. We bought 6 but probably should have bought a few more of these. I hope they spread fast.
- Aquilegia (columbine).
- Athyrium nipponicum var. pictum (Japanese painted fern). What's not to like about a fern that has purple on it? The last time we bought purple ferns, they didn't survive. Today we couldn't resist trying again. If it survives the winter, we'll probably get more.
- Campanula Pearl Deep Blue (Carpathian bellflower). We bought two of these, but sadly one of them has already died.
- Corydalis flexuosa 'Purple Leaf'
- Geranium x 'Johnson's Blue' (hardy geranium). We bought 2 of these and planted them in late July.
- Heuchera FOREVER® Purple (coral bells). We bought a total of 7 of these because Sharon really liked the color.
- Juncus patens (spreading blue rush). Jeff likes these and put 3 of them in the base of the ditch.
- Iris Lazica. Sharon loves irises. This is one of the few varieties she found that would tolerate shade.
- Polypodium scouleri (leather-leaf fern). We didn't have any of these in our yard yet. We just bought one to try it.
- Polystichum munitum (western sword fern). Can you ever have too many ferns? These can survive anywhere.
- Polystichum polyblepharum (tassel fern). This fern is pretty interesting looking. We bought 2 of them.
- Polystichum setiferum (Alaskan fern). When we picked this up we didn't realize how huge it could get (4' tall by 3' wide). We may eventually end up moving this to a better location if it outgrows this area.
- Pratia pedunculata 'County Park' (blue star creeper). These weren't actually in the original plan; they were a spontaneous purchase from the nursery because it was a good match color-wise and it would work in the shade.
- Sisyrinchium bellum ‘Rocky Point’ (west coast blue eyed grass). This plant was a substitution for another plant which was not available. It will hopefully survive the location because the flowers are quite pretty.
- Dicentra formosa 'Luxuriant' (bleeding heart). Another late addition. We put it in the shadiest spot we have and hope it lives.
