Green Thumb Sunday
More 2007 flowers from seed.
Blackberry lily/Leopard lily (seeds from trade)
I love the one that's getting ready to open.
I'm not sure what you call it but it's like a fern unfurling.
Same going to seed
Spiderflower-Cleome (seeds from trade)
Had fun with these flowers because you can prune them one week
and then the next week you have flowers again.
Zinnia Profusion Apricot Hybred
Hardy plant that flowered late into October. Needed weekly pruning.
American Goldfinch loved these and so did the gray squirrels.
Nicotiana sylvestris (Tobacco plant)
Interesting plant. I've seen these in a mass planting on one of HGTV's
Great American Gardens program. I'm not sure if it's right for my size garden.
Dahlberg Yellow Daisy
Pretty little flowers.
Look best if pruned once in awhile but it's a little time consuming.
Dwarf Queeny Mix Hollyhocks (seeds from trade)
Three feet tall and didn't need staking!
Moulin Rough Sunflower
Of course the birds and the squirrels liked these also.
A nice change of color.
