When I set out the stone path a couple of weeks ago, I wound up with this lovely corner intersection between the path and the patio.
I am hoping to level the first part of the path where the foundation for it is already properly prepared and then next spring I want to put a showy plant there. I was thinking that the giant Empress Wu Hostas would look amazing there.
Do you think there is a plant that would look better? It has to be big, not attract insects, and do well in the shade.
Laura, you might try the link below and see if this shrub would work for you. It’s beautiful and will attract butterflies, too. Most of the Arborvitae would also work, though you have to be careful about variety. Some get huge, while others are easily control with judicious pruning in late winter/early spring.
Good luck on your project. I’ve been watching your adventure with interest. Keep up the good work.
