Central Midwest Gardening: Corner Garden Plan

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

Make use of a forgotten corner with this simple garden plan for the Central Midwest from Lowe's regional gardening contributor Marty Ross.

Central Midwest Garden Plan

Tight corners are challenging, but a three-sided garden has lots of style. This space features plenty of color and texture, and a birdbath right up front. A trellis on one wall adds dimension, and the honeysuckle growing on it will attract the first hummingbirds of the season. Fountain grasses fluff up the other side. Purple-flowering catmint and cheerful yellow daylilies line the front edge. Shasta daisies, lilies, sedums and butterfly weed fill in behind the birdbath. Birds and butterflies will love it.


A) Catmint (Nepeta racemosa 'Blue Wonder')

B) Daylily (Hemerocallis 'Happy Returns')

C) Shasta daisy (Leucanthemum x superbum 'Becky')

D) Lily (Lilium)

E) Stonecrop (Sedum 'Autumn Joy')

F) Butterfly weed (Asclepias tuberosa)

G) Fountain grass (Pennisetum alopecuroides)

H) Honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens)
