Folly Beach Yard of the Month: August 2023

August’s Yard of the Month, 220 East Erie  has been home to Nadine and David Samples since 2019 when a business meeting brought them to Charleston and their dream of moving to a beach town was realized when they came to Folly.  Nadine, having always been a gardener, began to enhance the established growth. 

A flowing camelia tree in the front bed is surrounded by violet morning glory and fuscia hibiscus.   A neat grass bed lines the front behind which  personally laid concrete pavers form a walkway bordered with white gardenia shrubs.  A triple jasmine covered trellis stands behind with carpet roses highlighting below.

A healthy banana tree hosts the left bed among purple butterfly plants.  Farther multi-colored hibiscus bloom beneath a white crepe myrtle. Gracing the right front is a lavender crepe myrtle.   Fan palms flow above violet plumbago and paprika roses.

Triple, tall, slender palmettos are found on the right corner among plumbago and bright red canna lilies .   Ginger plants balance this bed.  A sago palm resides among pink mandevilla beyond this right corner. 

Nadine enjoys being outside and watching things grow.  Being a nurse, she enjoys taking care of things.  Our congratulations on a truly lovely and healthy garden.   May the Samples continue to enjoy the Folly people and their dream beach home.

The Garden Club continues our summer vacation.
