I thought I would share with you guys a few pictures of my front yard. I've been busily working at the beds this past week and am excited to finally see things coming together. All I need now is a great summer of heat and everything should explode. Let's hope this summer isn't like last year!
Looking northeast at the front yard. Phoenix sylvestris, surrounded by 2 trachycarpus fortuneis on each side.
Looking southeast at the front yard. Phoenix sylvestris, surrounded by 2 trachycarpus fortuneis. Same design as the other corner.
Closer shot of the middle. On each end I have an ensete maurelii, 4 musa basjoo near the top, and 2 black magic elephant ears in the front of the musa basjoo. In the background you can see the edge of another bed. It contains hostas, burning bushes and perennials (can't plant ALL tropicals in WI!)
Closeup of the basjoo and the elephant ears.
Last, but not least, a shot of the front of the house. Washingtonia robusta and trachycarpus fortunei (both in the ground since 2008).
Thanks for looking!
