Things are finally starting to come alive in the perennial bed. Aside from a few wintersown containers, some weeding, and possibly moving a few plants this fall, I'm considering it finished for the year. All I have to do now is wait for everything to mature and bloom. Some of the plants may not bloom until next summer.
"Sunny" Knockout's first bloom. I should have taken this photo yesterday.
Pink and red knockouts
Unidentified flower. I thought they were crocus leaves.
Linaria "Flaming Passion"
Virginia Stock is holding up well to the heat.
Oxalis. Lots and lots of pink and yellow oxalis.
The Rose of Sharon leafed out nearly a month early this year.
Coreopsis "Full Moon" and Shasta Daisies are really taking off this week.
Clover and oxalis in the future rose garden.
Red Homestead Verbena
In the cloner, petunias, anise hyssop, hibiscus, persian shield, and other odds and ends.
Yesterday I found a white lantana on the rack at the store. There were two lavender plants in the same container so I pulled them out and repotted them. They'll go into the front beds once they have rerooted. The white will go into the white bed to grow among the daturas and nicotiana.
