On Facebook Robin of Getting Grounded asked for everyone’s favorite shade perennials. Pam of Digging suggested Pale Leaf Yucca. After looking at her plants and my plants I’m not sure what exactly I have. I got it from my parent-in-law’s land and planted it years ago. But in any case I got motivated to go out and thin that yucca out.
I ended up with four plants where I previously had one.
And seven rather substantial ones to give away. Clearly it needed thinning.
I ended up also cleaning out my lower garden. I think it looks fairly nice at this time of year.
As does the main part of the front yard. I really value having so much structure and color at this time of year, and there’s so much wildlife using the shrubs for cover and picking off seeds.
