The front of my house is trimmed with a 20” planter box. When I first moved into my house, about 7 years ago, I planted Dianthis in the front 6” of the planter. Each year I fill in the middle with whatever brightly colored flower suits me and Snap Dragons to add height in the back. This year I alternated Disco Marigolds with Asters. I am still waiting patiently for my Snap Dragons to become well established throughout the flower bed, hopefully by next year!
Dianthis with bulb reminents:
Although the Dianthis is beautiful in May and June it doesn’t look very good the remainder of the summer. I am considering taking it out and replacing it with carpet Flox. Maybe next year!
Flower gardening is so much more fun when the options for change are left open! Happy Digging!!
