Quail Valley Yard of the Month named
Lasting summer color during a very hot summer is a feat achieved by Maria Landis of 3722 Ridgeview, just off Glenn Lakes. Her garden is a riot of color beautifully contrasted to vertical “anchor” plants that define areas and make statements.
Whether it’s the dramatic ligustrums central to the entry or the cypress adding their winding shapes, this garden is full of ideas. It’s lush with caladiums, bougainvillea, ixora, vinca, society garlic and roses.
The yellows, oranges, reds, pinks shade into the lavenders among many shades of green. For dependable color, Maria uses caladium clusters and varieties with their many colors of foliage.
Maria received a plant from Flowers by Adela and a Certificate of Appreciation from the Quail Valley Garden Club. If you’d like more gardening know how, their programs, open and free to the public, begin, Thursday September 12 at 9:30 a.m.
