Last July we drove down to Ann Arbor and on the way back made a pitstop somewhere along the interstate where I snagged a few photos of the planting area. If this can grow there it should be able to grow in our yard. daylilies, sedum, Russian Sage or catmint, tall grasses, daisies, and some annuals mixed in for color. We planted over 15 perennials and three bushes this weekend on the north side of our yard. I hope it looks like this next year.
