snowgardener's Obelisk garden
Garden Type: Cottage | Sun: Full Sun | Soil: Loam | Established: 2008 | Organic
The obelisk is about 8 feet tall made from cedar and copper by my Dad and my husband. I love it and it is the centerpiece of this garden.
Here grows 3 of my 4 roses including the Abraham Darby and the miniature red rose shown in the pictures above. I also have my Gertrude Jeckyl rose in there. A Will Goodwin clematis grows on the obelisk and I intend to add another clematis this year.
The bed is surrounded by sidewalks and I put in a brick path to wind through as a short cut from the door sidewalk to the driveway sidewalk. I’m very fond of lavender an have a hedge of it growing along one side of the brick path.
Oriental lilies, rose campion, veronica, thread leaf coriopsis, scabiosa, reseeding annual poppies, reseeding annual love-in-a-mist, a daylily, chrysanthemum, and sedum are some of the other plants found in this area.
I should mention that I built this bed with the lasagna method about 5 years ago and it has been very healthy and nutrient rich ever since.
