Heuchera (Coral Bells)

Heuchera by far are one of my favorite plants for shade. Not only are they beautiful plants but in my garden (where deer and rabbits roam) have been very pest free. They don't require much water to maintain once they are established and will pretty much take care of themselves. the only real maintenance that is necessary is a dividing about every 3 years to re-invigorate the plant. Sometimes the center will die back and all the gardener needs to do is divide it and replant one of the divisions where the original plant was. the really cool thing is you end up with more free plants!

Here are a few of the heucheras we have in our garden:

Heuchera 'Silver Scrolls'
One of my favorites among favorites Heuchera 'Silver Scrolls' sports a silvery variegation. Zones 4-8

Rudbeckia (Black-eyed Susan)

Rudbeckia is a great perennial for the garden. Low in pests problems and high in visual interest it never fails to provide an impressive display in the late summer. It reseeds easy and is especially good for problem areas and wildflower gardens. It's seeds nourish the birds in the fall while it's petals nourish the eyes of the gardener in the summer giving you very few reasons not to plant one!

'Powis Castle' Artemisia (Planting and Rooting)

Since its addition to our garden in 2009 'Powis Castle' artemisia has proved to be a powerful perennial plant for foliage! I've always enjoyed artemisias for the silver foliage and really liked the 'Silver Mound' artemisia that we put in the front sidewalk garden so once I found this cultivar at a local nursery I thought I would give it a try. It spread to an area of 5 feet wide in its first season in the ground. 'Powis Castle' is more stout than tall.  It may be 18-24" tall right now and might get up to 3 feet tall.
