Planting Ajuga and Brunnera from Monrovia

The gardens here at my Bedford, New York farm are constantly evolving. I am always looking for pretty and interesting specimens to add to the developing beds. It's always very rewarding to see them develop and thrive.

This week, I received an assortment of plants from Monrovia, a wholesale plant nursery specializing in shrubs, perennials, annuals, ferns, grasses and conifers with several nursery locations across the country. My head gardener, Ryan McCallister, and I, decided to plant Ajuga 'Chocolate Chip' on both sides of a footpath leading to my Summer House garden. We also added Ajuga 'Black Scallop' and Brunnera 'Alexandria' to a bed behind my gym. These plants are small now, but they will add more texture and color to the areas as they grow.
