I hope that you enjoy some images of plants and flowers in the garden today. Things look so different when you get up close and personal, this is why when designing with plants it is critical to determine whether they are best from a distance or up close. Many perennials are not spectacular specimens, but when they are part of a grouping they add more than their individual value, but each flower is special in its own way.

months after the three mother plants were each divided into six children.
This truly is a plant that gives and gives.
