Normally, I put a hibiscus plant in here. But, at $30 to $40, I just couldn't justify it this year. So, I wanted height. I went w/ gladiolus bulbs. They are doing well. I'll get the height I wanted and also tons of color.
Our hostas are huge. Roughly they get about 4' across once they grow out. They look droopy here b/c I just watered them. You can take hostas and easily divide them and plant them elsewhere in the yard. We do this each year. This one not b/c of trying to sell the house.
