For replanting: Fantastic bed with many flowers


The Content Of The Article:

The owners of the property have created a new bed along the garden fence. In their design, they want support. You would like to integrate a wildflower meadow or other insect-friendly plants. The shrubs and the mirabelle should be preserved.

Pleasant form and color play

The local columbine opens its buds in May. She is only two years old, but she is out and looks every year at different places in the garden. Also in purple shows the cranesbill 'Rosemoor' from June onwards. He is extremely robust and willing to flower. In August, he is replaced by the knotweed 'Album' with narrow white flowers. As the cranesbill remounted, both are in duet in October. All three plants are also attractive to insects.

Design idea dreamlike flowerbed

On the wooden Rank Obelisks, the Clematis comes to its best advantage, as well as a nice height graduation in the bed

At the fence dwarf sparrow 'Albiflora' and hanging sedge alternate. The dwarf sparrow shows its white, in insects popular umbels from July to September, the native sedge adorned year-round with elegant overhanging stalks and in June and July additionally with brown ears. The Clematis 'Angelas Double' captivates in May and again in August by hanging, white-pink flowers. The bright purple of the thimble growing behind it fits in wonderfully.

The clematis, which rises on the tree, distracts skilfully from its crooked growth and gives the scenery something picturesque. On the bench under the leafy canopy, one can settle down with relish, listen to the buzzing and humming of the bees, watch them picking nectars and surveying the entire garden. The fountain creates a lively splash and cools the face and hands during the summer. Also for insects and birds a water source in the garden is valuable. To the right, a path leads from loosely laid concrete blocks to the seat. Over time, it is more and more taken up by the woodruff who flowers in white in May.

Flower candles shine in the bed

Lupinus-Polyphyllus hybrids

Red Foxglove

Perennial lupins (Lupinus polyphyllus hybrids) are popular cottage garden plants that bloom in a variety of hues. Here, the yellow flowering variety 'chandelier' (left) shines with red foxglove (digitalis purpurea, right) to the bet

Perennials with tall inflorescences set splendid accents in the sunny bed for many weeks. The yellow lupine 'chandelier' and the red foxglove (careful: poisonous!) Light up in June and structure the bed with their long flower candles. Lupins do not need much care. They love a sunny spot with deep, permeable and rather lime-poor soil. A sheltered place is also an advantage, so that the magnificent candles do not kink. Like lupins, thimbles are often visited by bees and bumblebees. Dark spots in the flower's throat point the way to the nectar.The native plant is biennial, but like the columbine.
