|Heuchera, heucherella, and inkberry hollies.|
|Heucheras, inkberry hollies, and lyreleaf sage.|
The whole thing will be easy to maintain and easy to get rid of. I'll need to deadhead the lyreleaf sage plants when they flower so the bed isn't overrun, and I'll pull weeds occasionally. When we no longer need the bed, the heucheras will probably transplant readily. I assume this because they're supposed to need dividing every few years anyhow. I don't mind losing the lyreleaf sages because I can easily grow a million more. I might lose the inkberries, but that will be it.
Yes, it's boring. I suppose it demonstrates that one can do any landscaping style with native plants, including boring corporate plantings. (Please keep in mind that this was an unplanned project that I had to do concurrently with building the rain garden, something that I did put a lot of time and design effort into.)
