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 support 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.
This collection includes:
A Jackmanii Clematis (1), To create privacy or hide an unsightly area, there is no finer choice than this rich, deep purple Climbing Clematis..
B Daisy, Black Eyed Susan (3), These are one of the few perennials to remain in bloom until frost stops them..
C Pink Coneflower (3), Drought-resistant, long-lasting daisylike blooms are bright purple-pink with contrasting maroon centers .
D Lush Pachysandra (6), An economical choice for problem areas. Grows well under trees where even grass doesn’t do well.
