Cottage Style Foundation Planting


The foundation planting of this Welcome, NC home makes us want to stop for a visit. The heavy clumps of variegated liriope form a strong line from the driveway, across the front of the house, and around the Crepe Myrtle tree on the far side.

Encore azaleas front the house. They bloom in the spring and continue to bloom off and on until late fall. There are many cultivars of Encores from which to choose. A Kousa dogwood and Crepe Myrtle greet visitors on either side of the walkway.

The back deck enjoys a view of flowering hydrangea, hosta and butterfly bush.
