A few weeks ago, frequent GPOD contributor Cherry Ong took us along on her visit to Bellevue Botanical Garden in Bellevue, Washington (GPOD on the Road: Bellevue Botanical Garden) but she sent too many photos to share that day, so we’re going back today to see some more of the beautiful images of this inspiring public garden.
This is a really beautiful Rudbeckiahirta (Zones 3–8). Sometimes these forms with a green central disk are called “green-eyed Susans.”
What interesting and unusual flowers! I think this might be a form of phlomis, possibly Phlomissamia (Zones 7–10). The color is so lovely; it would be beautiful in a flower arrangement.
Fading coneflowers (Echinacea hybrids, Zones 4–8) are backed up by the grasslike foliage and beautiful yellow flowers of a Crocosmia (Zones 7–10).
A hydrangea (Hydrangeapaniculata, Zones 3–8) in peak bloom is surrounded by daylilies (Hemerocallis hybrids, Zones 3–9), Crocosmia, and Agapanthus (Zones 8–10), all of which have beautiful grasslike foliage as well as their showy flowers.
Except for the hydrangea in the background and the splash of blue from the willow gentiana (Gentianaasclepiadea, Zones 3–8), this display is all about foliage, combining different textures, sizes, colors, and variegation to make a beautiful picture.
Sometimes no flowers are needed at all to make something perfect, as demonstrated by this gorgeous little container for shade. This planter contains perennials, shrubs, and annuals to create a combination of long-lasting color as well as provide a bright splash for the summer.
I love a perfect spot to sit and enjoy the garden.
This modern meadow planting combines grasses and other perennials to create an airy, informal display.

Fall is a great time for garden chores. This is the time to clean up before winter, protect vulnerable plants, and wind down the growing season. This isn’t the right time for all tasks, though. Know what to do with your garden in the fall and what not to do — for instance, what plants should not be cut back in the fall — to best prepare it for next year.

REDUCING THE footprint of our lawns has been a key environmental message for gardeners in recent years, since lawns lack biodiversity and involve huge amounts of pollution between fertilizers, herbicides, and the gas used in mowing. But what to cultivate instead? That is the subject of a nearly 15-year native lawn research project at Cornell Botanic Gardens in Ithaca, New York, with some interesting insights.
Why do plants get sick? The simple answer is for lots of reasons, many of them similar to the reasons why we humans do. Take, for example, poor diet. Just as it’s one of the root causes of disease, poor growth and reduced life expectancy in humans, so it is with plants.
