DAILY GARDENING INFO
Astilboides tabularis. It is the perfect plant for a shady area and does best in heavy, wet soil. It's also a good choice as a marginal plant next to a large pond. Astilboides does flower, sending up creamy white, Astilbe-like plumes in July, but the leaves are the plant's main attraction. It can take several years for a good-sized clump to form, but allow plenty of room for growth when planting, as a single plant can grow to 120cm (4ft) wide.
Dolichos lablab 'Ruby Moon' (RUBY MOON HYACINTH BEAN) A vigorous mounding vine with dark burgundy foliage, amethyst flowers and showy dark violet bean pods in late summer. Very desirable annual for cold climates. Excellent in containers. Perennial in the South. Vine. Edible. Garden loam is best. USDA zones 7 and warmer; annual elsewhere.
