Near the shed....The first plant is a Japanese Iris (I can't remember the exact one I planted but there are so many great ones to choose from in all shades of purple and white) , the dark purple plant is Cimicifuga racemosa 'Brunette', the lime coloured plant is a Euphorbia jaquemontii (I think) , the tall shrub is a buddleia (Butterfly Bush), the smaller plants in the front row are annuals...Brachycome (Swan river daisy) and the foliage on the front row near the cimicifuga is a double flowered Hellebore. The right side of the photo has Lavender 'Munstead', Variegated iris, Euphorbia wulfenii, and the annuals on the first row are Nigella (love in a mist). I hope this helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Autumn Snakeroot
How to use it. This plant doesn’t require any preconceived garden use or design style, yet can make a strong, sophisticated and individual statement with it — it's the perfect Little Black Dress of plants. Its soft texture, form and preferred growing conditions make it a natural addition to any modern woodland garden, a nod to the "new perennials" movement.

garden wow Near the shed....The first plant is a Japanese Iris (I can't remember the exact one I planted but there are so many great ones to choose from in all shades of purple and white) , the dark purple plant is Cimicifuga racemosa 'Brunette', the lime coloured plant is a Euphorbia jaquemontii (I think) , the tall shrub is a buddleia (Butterfly Bush), the smaller plants in the front row are annuals...Brachycome (Swan river daisy) and the foliage on the front row near the cimicifuga is a double flowered Hellebore. The right side of the photo has Lavender 'Munstead', Variegated iris, Euphorbia wulfenii, and the annuals on the first row are Nigella (love in a mist). I hope this helps! What are the purple shrubs next to the euphorbia? The purple leaved perennials are Cimicifuga simplex 'Hills Black Beauty'. Another cultivar I like is 'Brunette'. It's a great late blooming perennial with white scented flowers and the foliage looks great even before it blooms. It can take quite a bit of shade but the leaves stay nice and dark if it gets about half of a day sunlight. It's a 4' tall plant but stays nice and narrow (2-21/2' wide). Here's a link for more information on the perennial. I hope this helps! http://www.perennials.com/plants/cimicifuga-simplex-hillside-black-beauty.html
