|Catmint (Nepeta 'Walker's Low') grows low mounds in our curb strip over ground cover Sedum 'Acre'.|
We actually have two large curb areas, and each has a succession of flowers and foliage build into their planting. Earlier this season, we had hundreds of Anemone blanda 'White Splendour' and Muscari aucheri 'Ocean Magic' in the side curb (above and below). In the front curb, also known as the Front Woodland, we had an early bloom of crocuses, daffodils and forsythia, followed by a shocking bloom of one hundred red Darwin tulips (Tulip 'Red Impression').
|The catmint are planted in the first third of this curb strip so far. I have a few other perennials mixed in further down, but I am thinking about dividing a few more catmint for this area.|
|This photo gives you a nice appreciation for how a planted curb can be more interesting than plain old turf (as on the other side of the street) and still look somewhat controlled.|
