Garden, Colorful Mailbox – Garden Plan


Save Over 28%!

If you don’t already have a
mailbox in front of your house, you may want
to add one so you can duplicate this special
garden. Or, you can substitute a trellis, fencing,
wall anchors or any upright, so the Nelly Moser
Clematis can form a centerpiece for the supporting
cast of Clustered Bellflowers, Daisies and Dragon’s
Blood Sedum. While our illustration shows a
4′ x 6′ planting arrangement, these same perennials
can be spaced to add beauty to a much larger
area if you prefer.

Mailboxes are perfect places to grow the “Queen
of Clematis” – the beautiful, free-flowering,
two-tone Nelly Moser. The vines are light and
airy…won’t rot a wood post…stay within bounds
and smother themselves in a galaxy of six-inch
flowers that resemble a starburst. The violet-blue
Clustered Bellflowers and white Little Miss
Muffet Daisies complement the Clematis colors,
while Dragon’s Blood Sedum makes a striking,
drought-tolerant, well-behaved ground cover.
