Someone once told me a gardener plants the front garden for the neighbors and the back garden for themselves. That does not seem like an unrealistic or an unreasonable statement. This homeowner's front garden is warm and inviting and provides a beautiful introduction to the home.
The back garden feels a good deal more private... a good deal more intimate and serene. It is not particularly large... but then that is part of its magic. All of it is close enough to enjoy to its fullest potential:

The Crape Myrtle is flanked on the left with Golden Fernleaf Tansy and on the right with tall Summer Phlox.

The VERY narrow side yard has steppingstones, Mondo Grass, some Iris and Phlox and Clematis climbing the fence.

A group of Iris and a large Oakleaf Hydrangea underplant two 'Choctaw' tree-form Crape Myrtles.

The gardener has a lot of success with Hostas in pots. If you look real close you can see the pots rim in the foliage.

A wrought iron fence and gate allow views of the back garden from the side yard. They also open the garden up TO the side yard... keeping the garden from feeling TOO enclosed.

Pots of Hostas and Angelwing Begonias flank the wrought iron gate.

I hope you enjoyed the tour.
