There's so much that changes in the MG landscape throughout the year...we thought a plant trial and garden blog was the best way to start sharing "what's new" and "what's happening with all those new varieties" with you! Visit often for updates on how trial plants are performing in the gardens and to see photos throughout the season as we grow and change!

Plants on a Wall

Hello all,
This will be a very quick post, but I wanted to show you our newest addition to the landscape along with a very old landscape specimen. Here they are.
I apologize if you blow this picture up. It was very windy when I took this picture, so it's not all in focus. With the new market of Living Walls taking shape, I wanted to remind you of how beautiful our Parthenocissus tricuspidata could be on a wall. The fall colors of this beauty are impeccable. It just goes to show you that Living Walls are not a new thing, but the technology sure has changed.

One of the newest additions to our landscape is this green wall. We recently hosted a Green Living Technology training and during the training they created this very interesting green wall. There are many species of plants here such as Carex 'Evergold' and Ajuga 'Black Scallop' just to name two. I am very interested in how this will look next year. I will keep you posted. If you would like further information on this kind of project, please email us at mgplanttrials@gmail.com
