Hi Norm, I'm sorry I missed your question! The green ground cover is baby's tears. It does well in a shade or part shade exposure. The front of the border is planted with golden oxalis. The grass on the left is Hakonechloa macro 'Allgold'. The grass on the right is an evergreen Carex. One of the hostas is called 'Sunpower... I don't have the other ones marked down but you could stick with the golden variegated ones. I have planted a small rhododendron in behind the baby's tears. There is also Tricyrtis hirta (toad lily) planted in the far left back....There's a fern called Onoclea sensibilis (Sensitive fern) behind the Hakonechloa 'Allgold'. To the left of the Rhododendron in the back row is Acanthus mollis. The shrub on the far right by the tree trucks is Cornus alba 'Elegantissima' and there is a small lime green shrub to the left of it call Choisya ternata 'Sundance'. I hope this helps!

Really like the way the garden has such depth. I'm assuming it gets plenty of sun even with the fence behind it.

@rosedlak - The mulch I use on all my garden beds is a product called Seasoil. It conditions the soil beautifully, adds micronutrients to the soil, and helps keep the weeds down. I put it on all my garden beds every spring. Here's a link to their website for more info. I hope this helps!

Hi foxy11. I planted this garden and they are Oxalis (Golden Oxalis is the common name). They are an annual. Coral Bell is a really great perennial though and in other gardens of mine I have used the bright yellow cultivar 'Key Lime''s really wonderful in the shade!

Thanks Glenna for clarifying. It is a lovely garden you have designed! What are the taller plants you used in the back row along the fence? Thanks!
