<![CDATA[Photo Contest]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/173/photo-contest My garden is entitled Xandu.  It is a haven for insects, birds, small mammals, reptiles, and people.  I began it about 10 years ago when we had some awful trees taken down and were left with a "space"  It spreads out every year.  I leave my plants close together to support as many insects as possible, which goes up the food change.  There are perennials, (many are native plants) bulbs, annuals for cutting, rhizomes etc.   I have something in boom from Hellebores in very early spring to mums  and a few hardy roses into Oct. I have incorporated "found art"  and have cast some birdbaths from huge rhubarb leaves.  As I look out today, the garden seems in motion with birds, butterflies, and a great group of dragonflies.  Life is peaceful in the garden.

<![CDATA[Species Garden  Tropical Milkweed]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/177/species-garden-%13-tropical-milkweed  

 

These are 15 plants in roughly a 2 foot diameter plot. I planted them tightly to create a bush type of effect. The blossoms have just started opening in the last few days. They should get twice as tall, while continuing to bloom, through the end of the growing season. This is my favorite milkweed for the monarch butterflies to lay their eggs on. I think the slender green leaves, although sparse, look nicer than others I have planted. Also, it is non-invasive; the plants and seeds do not survive the cold temps of winter here.
