Mailbox Bed Renovation

Posted by Jake on 13 July, 2009

Last fall I planted two Mums and two Bush Daisies for an autumn scene at the mailbox. This past spring I moved the Mums around back and planted different annuals. The Bush Daisies just kept growing and growing and as they were they were smothering the annuals and the Purple Fountain Grass. I decided yesterday the Bush Daisies had to go; they had grown from small $3 annuals to small shrub size plants.

At Home Depot I picked up three pots of Heliconia and a Croton ‘Mammy’. That is seriously what the tag on the Croton said, lol. I planted them and divided the Lirope that was already there and left the Purple Fountain Grass. The area now look a lot better and less growded. It is also nice to add more of a tropical look t the front yard. Now lets go on to the pictures:
