Big Style: Doty's Garden

Perfect Patio

This garden is really an extension of the owners' home. It beckons you outdoors and begs you to linger among the daylilies, spice-scented roses, and friendly daisies.

The patio is just large enough to be functional without being unmanageable, a key characteristic for any outdoor living space. Plus, thoughtful planning has minimized garden chores.

Blooming Favorites:
Perennials: bearded iris, 'Whirling Butterflies' gaura (Gaura lindheimeri 'Whirling Butterflies'), purple coneflower, daylily, and Shasta daisy
Biennial: common foxglove (Digitalis purpurea)
Annuals: begonia, pentas, snapdragon, and torenia
