Gardening: plants and plans

Here are plants we’ve found on the property or nearby and decided to keep:

  • Diervilla lonicera: ; Totally excited this is what it is, and not Japanese honeysuckle! Almost tossed it…
  • Meadowsweet:
  • Maple-leaf viburnum: and
  • Cedar! Added some as well.
  • Creeping phlox
  • Sedum


Here are plants that are non-native or invasive and we have gotten rid of:

  • Burningbush
  • Japanese knotweed
  • Japanese barberry
  • Some forsythia


Here’s my wish list:

  • Columbine
  • Wild Ginger
  • Red osier dogwood
  • Sweet fern
  • Hay-scented fern
  • Saskatoonberry
  • Royal fern
  • Sensitive fern
  • Bloodroot (sanguinaria)
