Front Yard Annuals - Dusty Millers And More - Summer 2022
Yesterday, I shared some looks at the island beds (of annuals) that you can see in Luxembourg Gardens in Paris this year. I've used them as inspiration in the past for some containers, but this year, I thought we'd try to use them as inspiration for our front yard in-ground bed.
I decided to use a combination of 36 (small) Dusty Millers and some other colorful annuals (that I haven't bought yet). I don't love pinks, so maybe reds is where I'll land.
While the alternating color isn't locked in, the Dusty Millers are, indeed, 'locked-in'. Here you can see them below: six six-packs bought and brought home.
- Our first full year - in 2018 - we planted some Ranunculuses - about eight of them.
- In 2019, we planted 16 orange marigolds. +8 plants yoy.
- In 2020, we planted 24 Impatiens. +8 plants yoy.
- In 2021, we planted 20 Lemon Coral Sedum and 24 begonias. 44 total. +20 yoy.
