I never thought I’d have the patience or the fortitude to plant a themed garden, but all the sudden I’m thinking about a very dark garden. Ironically, dark gardens need a lot of light: my ‘Black Lace’ sambucus goes green in the shade but gets very dark in the sun. Hmmmm.
I’ve made a list of all the usual dark foliage plants, and I have Timber’s lovely little Black Plants book–but what are your favorites?
