Garden, Lamppost Half-Circle Plan
An elegant touch for any landscape is a lamppost
surrounded by beautiful perennials. You don’t
even need a lamppost to create this floral display.
You can substitute a signpost, small tree, trelllis
or a metal or wooden post with a decorative
top. (Consider, for example, a post topped by
a charming weather vane.)
To create an easy-care Lamppost Garden, Spring
Hill has chosen one climbing vine of richly
colored Jackmannii Clematis, 3 each of mid-height
Black Eyed Susans and Pink Coneflowers, with
an evergreen foreground of 6 Lush Pachysandra.
This combination of beautiful perennials is
perfect when your post is against a background.
Ideal for planting in full sun or partial shade.
The sturdy metal stand of a lamppost is the
kind of strong suppport needed for the dense
vine cover and abundant blooms of the Jackmanii
Clematis. The golden Black Eyed Susans and Pink
Coneflowers are perfect summer-flowering companions.
The evergreen Lush Pachysandra ground cover
is attractive at all times.
Garden contains 13 plants.
