Some August Winners !
Our Carolina Wren (busy making babies since May).... finally gave it a break !!
Now that she's absent.... we have 2 cutie hummers visiting several times a day...
Sneezeweed 'Mardi Gras'
Interesting how at different times of the day(different light) can enhance flowers or just make them look average.
Bloom time is suppose to be August to October.
Deadheaded once already and it's full bloom again.
Looks like a winner !
Scaevola aemula or New Wonder Fan Flower
An annual worth repeating.
Roses- Double Knock Out 'Rosa Radtko'
Tallest of my Knock Out Roses and most prolific,also brightest.
Homestead Purple Verbena or Verbena canadensis 'Homestead'
The zone on this perennial is 7 to 10...will see if it comes back next year. I'm 7a.
This is a hardy long bloomer so far.
Buy these every year for the shade. Never lets me down !
Pretty flower, nice foliage.
Still growing !
This one is the most disappointing perennial I've ever had.
Trumpet Vine Madam Galen.
Had these plants since 2005. Believe it needs more than 6 hours sun.
Not happy with this one, only gets a few flowers and I have to cut it back every week.
This fall the vine is being replaced !!
