We tamed ours (up to a point--they already need trimming!) and still have some of the original plantings.
Under the window, I had planted Batik Iris. But when they overgrew their area, I thinned them out and moved them to the backyard. I will ALWAYS have these somewhere in my garden.
I love the purple with splashes of white.
Next week, I might need to post my hosta pictures. No, I don't have any old boring green hostas, I have fun colored ones!
