Thanks for noticing. That plant is a Hardy Geranium called Rozanne.

Thanks for writing. This is a mostly shady Zone 7 spot. Low-maintenance hosta, solomon's seal, lamium, hardy geranium, hakone grass, azalea, and pachysandra all abide along with several crapemyrtles and roses in the sunny part of the yard. An inherited Japanese maple provides wondrous fall color.

Hi. Those are ceramic sculptures of pitcher plants by Marcia Donahue in Berkeley, CA. She does awesome work. They do look real. Thanks for the question.
