June, what a great idea this is. Don't know why I hadn't though about doing this before. I will definitely give it a try next year. Thumbs up

The dark green bushes make a nice background for light-colored plants and they also make a wonderfully yummy cover for the straggley stalks of cosmos and others like that. nodding
