|Soft yellow blossom of the magnolia "Elizabeth"|
Around the base of the tree pictured below, a patchwork of ground covers spreads throughout the rock garden that surrounds it. Clumps of deep purple Laborador violets set against dark green, nearly black, leaves contrast with vivid green low growing stonecrop while bright green wild strawberry vines are sending runners throughout the rock garden.
We can hardly wait for some of the other woodland plants to emerge and develop and begin to bloom.
