Create a patriotic garden in red, white and blue
Jack Williams, a plant specialist and landscape designer for the Flower Fields, has designed a couple of simple gardens with patriotic colors that homeowners can plant in their own yards:
For a moist, shady location: Plant one Goodness Grows spike speedwell (Veronica spicata) in the center. Surround it with three cardinal flowers (Lobelia cardinalis) and finish in front with a white groundcover such as White Uniform campanula or White Nancy lamium.
For a small, sunny location: Combine Blue Hills salvia, Starfire and David garden phlox and either White Swan coneflower or Silver Princess Shasta daisy.
