Country Club Planter


Several years ago the country club updated their tee boxes by adding landscaping bricks around them. To do this they asked for donations, which we gladly gave. They also put a raised bed at the entrance to the club and I have the pleasure of planting this every year.


I finally got smart and planted Stella de Oro daylilies and Salvia "Purple Rain" so that I wouldn't have to spend a fortune on annuals. This year I also added purple Wave petunias in keeping with the purple and gold scheme. That's our school colors, don't ya know.


I thought you might like to see this garden as it's looking really good right now and I'm pretty proud of it. At least one of my gardens looks good!

I love you colors! You have done a wonderful job of tending your flowers.
That corn in the field is looking pretty good too!

Sally said...

Thanks Sandi!

That corn isn't looking half bad either! Knee high by the 4th of July...much better than all the parched crops down Kentucky way.

Our wish our flowers looked half as good as yours.

Sally said...

Thanks Joe. Yea, the corn is really looking good now. Can't wait for the sweet corn to get ripe!

Lovely planter, every time I see saliva in a planting, I wonder why I don't have any at the moment. I used to have some beautiful dark purple saliva.

Hey Jenny. Actually, I hate this salvia. It's a perennial and it gets *huge*. This fall I'm taking it out and giving it to the greenskeeper to plant in some far off bed. I like the annual salvia as it's a much more behaved plant. Unfortunately it doesn't hold up well in this planter what with the sun, wind and dry conditions. But the Wave petunia is wonderful so I'm going with that next year.
