It was early in May when I planted my meadow garden under a Guaiacum sanctum (lignum vitae) and a Veitchia. The plants have really grown into mature specimens and all the grasses are blooming. I've weeded this area only three times this summer and the grasses are now growing so densely that soon, weeding will not be necessary - my goal!!
|Each grass was planted about 2' apart so that their rounded form can be expressed|
|In June I scattered seeds of Coreopsis leavenworthii, our native tickseed|
|This photo was taken in the afternoon light. The lovegrass is blooming!|
|The Croton linearis (pineland croton) has tripled in size since May|
