Spring in Mary’s Garden - FineGardening
Today we're in Maryland, visiting Mary Spencer's garden. May is my favorite month of the year and is when my shade garden comes to life. Yellow archangel with silver-marked foliage and yellow blooms is a beautiful plant, but it spreads rapidly, so it needs to be sited where it won't smother other plants. The woodland garden is lush with plants, with huge ostrich ferns. A container planted up with annuals and Japanese forest grass adds height to this shade planting. Have a garden you'd like to share? Have photos to share? We'd love to see your garden, a particular collection of plants you love, or a wonderful garden you had the chance to visit! To submit, send 5-10 photos to along with some information about the plants in the pictures and where you took the photos. We'd love to hear where you are located, how long you've been gardening, successes you are proud of, failures you learned from, hopes for the future, favorite plants, or funny stories from your garden.
