I’m Renata Puckett. I planted mainly gifted and some purchased plants in Morgan County, Alabama. I grow and divide them to fill our country gardens around the house. I have plenty of space to fill, as we have four acres of land around the house. It’s a lot of work, but also a lot of fun, watching your plants bloom or as a floral backdrop. I try to mix colors and textures and something always pops up. I start each season with buttercups and end with ginger lilies. I have some shady and sunny spots. These photos were taken on June 21.
Shining Daylily (Hemerocallis Hybrids, zones 4-9) grow with hens and chicks (Sempervivium, zones 3–9). Hardy succulents like chickens and chicks are great choices for small containers because small containers can dry out quickly and these plants don’t mind.
