A Lovely and Low Care Garden Path

Plant Combinations, Shady Borders, Garden Paths, Walkways


Isn't this garden path lovely and interesting? Softening this walkway and tracing gently curves is an outstanding edge of Plantain Lily (Hosta), which draws the eye along the path and invites you into the garden. The attractive variegated foliage of the Hosta provides additional interest, light and depth to this shady path. It is handsomely complemented by the rich lavender-blue blossoms of Spanish Bluebells (Hyacinthoides hispanica).

Two easy plants to grow in shady areas and which require very little care. Enjoy!
