The misadventures of Thorny Guy and Lady Bug gardening in Minnesota
Wednesday, May 20, 2009
Here is a bleeding heart I purchased at a plant sale last year. It is doing so well on the hilltop slope, that I bought another 5 including a white one, from plant sales this year. At a buck each you can not go wrong and may just solve the slope problem.
The slope is dry shade from black walnuts. If that is not enough the deer always visit there and chop away on the hostas. I have been slowly adding plants to help prevent erosion. I also added several dead nettle plants, buggleweed, and periwinkle.
