The Subtle Garden

Just as the gardener shapes his garden, the garden shapes the gardener; I've found that over the years, specializing in growing smaller, more subtle woodland plants has gradually enhanced my appreciation for the quiet beauty, for example, of what are called woodland lilies... uvularias, polygonatums, maianthemums, and on down the list; including disporums, the fairy bells. This is Disporum sessile from east Asia, about a foot tall, clump-forming as well as seeding... it has aspirations to take over a rhododendron bed... its subtlety does not seem to extend to its reproductive capabilities.
