When I was going to college and working at Tallahassee Nurseries I lived in a small duplex in downtown Tallahassee. I remember springs at the nursery being super busy, exciting and tiring all at the same time. I also remember thinking all day about what gardening task I was going to do when I got home. Some things never change. I do not think there is a plant that I would not take home from the Martin. However, I know the limits of my gardening space. My back yard is shaded with the canopy of 5 live oaks. Today I brought home Ajuga ‘Chocolate Chip’, Variegated Alpinia Ginger, and ‘Olympia White’ Begonias. The Ajuga is the cutest little ground cover. It flowers in the spring with purple saliva like blooms and hugs the ground with purplish foliage year round. The ‘Olympia White’ Begonia is an annual begonia that likes to stay on the dry side. Its white flowers show well in my shady back yard. The Ginger I planted in a pot that is nestled in an evergreen planting of Creeping Yew. The gold and green foliage will be a great contrast to the yew. Need some Ideas. Bring in a “cell phone” photo of your space. We can guide you.
