Taken on the identical day, from the opposite aspect of the crabapple tree. Under the tree are shade loving crops together with variegated Solomon’s seal (Polygonatum odoratum ‘Variegatum’, Zone 3 – 8), blue hosta (Hosta hybrids, Zone 3 – 8) and newly planted coleus (Plectranthus scutellarioides, Zone 10 – 11 or as annual), which is able to develop a lot larger by means of the summer time.
