The bog did great this year- too great. The path in front got blocked by all the plants. I cleaned out 90% including a lot of iris, lizards tail and celery. Put in some annuals I got off dollar shelf at Lowes. Now I need to thin it out again!

Such inspiration — I can’t wait until we can FINALLY build our pond/bog/box turtle habitat! Maybe next year……

so, your coleus did well then? Hadn't thought of that one and it's a favorite in a lot of my shadier spots around the yard. I WAS going to try impatiens but now, maybe not!

I need to pull bucket loads out of the bog, way over grown. Thinking of shutting things down this week. Except the canna, it is still blooming great!

I got a 6 pack of small coleus and impatiens for $1. The impatient did ok but the one coleus I put in is now almost 4' across and 2' high. You can see the red inpatiens in the 3rd picture.

I wonder if having more annuals verses perennial plants reduces decaying organics in the pea gravel ?
