Sweet peas via Sandra Lightholder.--I try to grow these every year but our Spring season doesn't stay cool enough for them to grow very long. Love the scent of them though (mkc).

How to grow sweet peas:


Our Front Porch Winter Container Gardens

Year before last we planted a small evergreen, surrounded by winter pansies and trailing ivy. (Click photo to enlarge)

Clematis urophylla 'Winter Beauty' - The wax-like, creamy-white sepals, which surround a prominent boss of cream anthers, emerge from pale green buds and become paler, and more flared at their tips as they mature. These small, nodding, urn-shaped flowers contrast well with the rich green foliage.

Matteuccia struthiopteris

A brilliant ostrich fern which grows in shady, damp areas, and looks especially good planted with alliums.

Wisteria one trellis. Would like this going up and around the front door and hanging down over the Juliette balcony
