Thank you John for adding me as a friend. I took a few minutes to look at some of your photos... beautiful garden. You have given me a few ideas for an area of my garden that is in need of major renovation. I will be bugging you with questions about a few of the plants that you have in your garden. Again thanks and I look forward to seeing more of your garden. Kristi
"Thanks Charlotte and Lorraine. These astilbes and ferns are against the north side of the house, so they are in shade most of the day. Lorraine, you're right that astilbes (and ferns) will scorch if they get too much hot sun."
