Rain Garden in August

Rain Garden in August

This is what our rain garden looks like the first weekend in August. The flower that is currently blooming is Chelone lyonii "Hot Lips".  This is a beautiful plant to add to your garden that can grow in full or partial sun and would prefer to have moist soils.  This garden has really filled in since installation!! Another fun fact, I have only weeded this garden three times since it was installed.  That really goes to show you how planting plants in proper communities and proper garden preparation can greatly reduce your long term maintenance.
