Round Garden Bed


This is a small round raised bed garden in the front yard. It receives sun in the morning and afternoon shade. This gardener loves to let volunteer plants grow and thrive so there are volunteers of beefsteak plant (Perilla frutescens), violas and a petunia. On one the side of the bed is a new planting of common and butterfly milkweed which will get bigger over time. The purple-leaved P. frutescens grows to about 2-3 feet.
