Village West Yard of the Month
The Village West June Yard of the Month winner is 11411 Piping Rock. This home uses a yellow theme in its landscape. Yellow Hibiscus, variegated Shell ginger and Esperanza but the most prominent element is the Canna lilies. Cannas anchor both sides of the house. On the left are cannas with orange and yellow flowers. On the right and wrapping around the side are red cannas. These are less common with the red leaf color.
June Yard of the Month
In addition to the orange/yellow cannas, the remainder of the front driveway bed contains a mature waxleaf Ligustrum, Foxtail fern and Esperanza. Additionally, some Vinca for annual color. A red Crepe myrtle peaks over the fence with more color. The island bed next to the driveway contains the variegated Shell ginger, along with Liriope and more Vinca. The bed across the front of the garage contains mature Nandina and the red Cannas. The edge is Liriope with more Vinca to tie the beds together.
Proceed up the walk to the front door with beds filled with gardenia, and Elephant Ear in pots at the front door.
