Northwest Indiana Marshall Residence

One-of-a-kind and other very rare plants are around every corner. The view from any angle offers something new and interesting. The property is a constant work in progress as planting beds and landscape installations are in constant ebb and flow.

Thanks, Ginkgo Leaf Studio. I'm a tree lover myself, having been a tree and shrub expert at the largest garden center in Chicago for over a decade. BTW as you may or may not know, , the Ginkgo is the oldest tree in recorded history and much beloved by Asians, who treasure the stinky fruit it drops because there is a delicious seed inside it. I completely agree with your advice not to take them all down at once. Too much of a shock.

oh Dear Smalls! I cleaned it up today (almost typed "toady" :)) and sprayed with fungicide. keeping my fingers crossed. in other bad news :) a hydrangea that I tried to save is probably dead after it was growing and then I fertilized it!!!! grrrrr my green thumb is on vacation.
I checked out some garden books today from our library and one of them is The Gardener's guide to growing Daylilies. I just wanted to look at the varieties. I don't need any :) I was stunned and sickened to find that there is one called "golliwog"...so I wrote to the publisher expressing my dismay. The book was published in 1998, not 1938!! what planet are these people on?? I told them it is racist and terrible and that I was hoping someone besides me had spoken up and the name had been changed. It's bad enough with other names out there using Native peoples. GRRRRRR

Smalls Landscaping - N. INDIANA! Hosta ARE great! There are so many different kinds and if used properly in a landscape, the textures and colors will MAKE a landscape look awesome! They do not have to be divided either if you just let them be and grow into each other you will eliminate weeding and mulching. So think again! Look for different hosta. Some of my favorites are. regal Splendor, Blue Angel, Fire and Ice, Sun Power, Jimmy Crack Corn, sum n Substance to name a couple. We love to feed the birds. We have 15 blue bird houses that we check for sparrows all the time. A pair of red tail hawks have a nest in the big Oak trees! Every year the wood ducks come and check out the trees too. Lots of fun to watch. The best rhododendron would be Roseum Elegans. It is by far the hardiest. The best azalea is Herbert. They are both In th picture. Both purple. If your rhododendron is brown green it is not doing well it should be getting new growth now. If it is not it will die.
