Planting has begun in the front flower beds on either side of the front steps. Begonias and dianthus are planted near the edge. Russian sage, tall verbena, tall salvia, and peonies all went in the ground in early June.
Verbena borenensis was ordered from England. Should reach a height of 4 to 5 feet tall.
Blue Salvia is a perennial and a favorite with pollinators and humming birds.
