|April 2014, actually the "after" photo, this is not a bare slate...|
|Without any changes, it will like look much like this again this year.|
So although I conceived this idea...
...I decided I would not implement it for the Garden Walk.

The idea is to bed out about 100 coleus and nearly that many nicotiana langdorphii in swirls of lime green bells and waves of lime green and burgundy coleus.
The hosta never get to that "leaves touching" stage in my front yard because of the root system of the white pine. I have looked for images online of hosta and coleus together and none show the effect I am after. It might not be possible. That's the plan. This year, we will see...I have been propagating coleus like a mad woman! Check back this summer to see if I got the effect I was looking for!
