Tall Screen Garden Plan
Butterfly Border
This garage wall has only one small window and is otherwise flat and monotonous. Here's also a chance to think big and get a little adventurous. All of these plants are sun lovers, so this bed faces south. Most like plenty of moisture: They'd actually benefit from rainwater running off the roof of the garage and into the bed.

This Tall Screen Garden Plan features garden giants, such as Joe-pye weed, queen-of-the-prairie and giant scabious.

This Tall Screen Garden Plan was originally published in Garden Gate magazine No. 27.
