The plants in the new planter I built in April have settled in well and are starting to grow.

As this is on the North side of the house I selected shade loving plants. These are plants I already had in pots except for a new Trachelospermum jasminoides which I hope will eventually provide an evergreen scented screen.

Fatsia japonica ‘Spiders Web’
Podophyllum versipelle ‘Spotty Dotty’, this will soon have bright red flowers.
Polygonatum x hybridum ‘Striatum’ a variegated Solomons seal.
Skimmia Hermaphrodite does not need a pollinator, the white flowers are just going over and being replaced by red berries.
In a pot on the table is Trillium chloropetalum, some of the leaf markings have now faded. 

The rear of the house is not the most attractive however the plants make an attractive diversion.

‘Maggs’ the family cat approves of her new seat in the dry!

Do you have a shady area in your garden?
