A Backyard Stuffed with Artwork and Flowers

A Garden Full of Art and Flowers

Today we are in Bill Ziebarth’s garden.

I live in Duluth, Minnesota. I have worked in the garden all my life and for 23 years in my current location. I love to keep changing my gardens. Much of the gardening art in my gardens came from the family farm I grew up on.

A daylily grows in front of an old garden gate. The gate is used as a trellis for a clematis (Clematis ‘Jackmanii’, Zones 4-8), a honeysuckle vine (Lonicera sp.) And a ‘Ramblin Red’ rose.

Gloriosa daisiesGloriosa daisies (Rudbeckia hirta, zones 3–7 or annual), daylilies (Hemerocallis hybrids) and birdhouses in the rear.

Hydrangea paniculataHydrangea paniculata, Zones 3–8, daylilies and other perennials in front of a footbridge that connects a path.

pink and white petuniasPetunias (petunia hybrid, annual) in a bird cage. The rest of my flowers are free range.

Surrounding my garden – with hydrangeas, a birch (Betula papyrifera, zones 2–6) and my greenhouse.
