Colorful Mailbox – Garden Plan

Colorful Mailbox – Garden Plan

 

Garden, Colorful Mailbox

 

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.
