Is anyone else trying to garden in a small space? My garden is a right-angle triangle, 10 feet long but only 2.5 feet at the widest point. Groundcovers are pretty easy, but finding taller plants that don't swallow what space I have is a challenge. Not to mention, its in full sun most of the day (not the morning) and here in Atlanta, the humidity is high. I'm considering iris, liatris, adenophora and leucojum for perennials. Right now, I have a climbing rose in the middle that I love; for groundcovers, ornamental oregano and artemisia; and for bulbs, rain lily and peacock orchid. I am KINDA trying to keep a few themes going--xeriscape friendly, fragrant, and white/pink/purple color scheme--so I'm making it more of a challenge than it needs to be, I know. Any suggestions for plants I can add? White plants or evergreen would be my first preference, but I'll take any suggestions anyone can offer!!! :)
