Please? I think this is sort of shaded the walkway I think runs north and south. Big trees more south for the hostas, etc. neighbors tree to the east. I am mainly wanting to know the right side of the path. the little button flowers. sorry it's not all that clear. And too maybe what the ribbon leafed plant is

The little purple flowered plant does not vine...I can't think of the name of it...I have some. I do know when the flowers die, deadhead them and they will rebloom. The long leaved skinny plant in the picture above looks like Batchelor Buttons. Not sure what the small white flowers are.

The purple plant looks like columbine to me. Cut off the seed heads if you don't want a trillion more next spring. Not sure about either of your other plants, but was wondering if the white buttons might not be candytuff. Have no clue on the grass.

Beautiful pathway!

I was wondering if the white might be in the Achillea family. it's just that I don't thing of them being dappled shade type plants. I see there are bulbs with small flowers too. but not sure if they are button like. Feverfew is a different kind of green foilage, but don't remember what the flowers look like. Cerastium is gray foilage.

Yes, the purple flowers are columbine. They bloom once a year, not a re-blooming. The white buttons could be Candytuft, but I don't think so...another choice is Feverfew...little white mums.

The ribbon leaf plant...the bluish one? Not sure, but the one in front of that is Astilbe.

yeah, wish my camera did white better- I do like the purple plant -- columbines are pretty. love bell like flowers. Especially in that violet color. She has some thing further up too by the black trellis on the wall but I didn't get a good look at it.

I guess it doesn't matter, as Long as it matches the time of bloom with the others and fits my soil and sun. I hadn't thought to mix the blue with the purple slightly indirectly like that. If it is endless summer one will have to watch the aluminum or it could have a whole other look. lol. I will have to look to see if
annabelle Hydrangea blooms the same time as my endless summmer and will be behind endless summer nearer to the rose.. I also am going for this by mmoms cherry red rose which more or less blooms small blooms all summer. Behind will be catmint. Spring is little bushes of translplanted peony.If it isn't too much I have my new wisteria close by which had to be trimmed a little this spring[ I hope that wasn't a mistake] I have this grassy stuff too for the yellow green color like the ladies mantle though the leaves of the ladies mantle fit better. Love the idea of adding in bachelor buttons.

It may be too shady for english bells, Not sure
I do have a campanula with bells that might work. or Bellflowers. And I have the wild lady bells that might do okay there too. Astilbe is further up the line and further down the line. And I have similar hostas. I don't have the small fern??? Don't have the coral bells, but will before sommer is over. Oh well, I 'll take my dreaming off line.

thanks so much for the help 16paws, May, Vera ellen.
