First Update on Planter
After making my first Hypertufa Planter 4 weeks ago I threw in some almost dead plants like...Sedum Dragons Blood,Sedum 'Angelica'and Creeping Jenny 'Goldilocks' or Lysimachia nummularia.
Now this is what it looks like 4 weeks later without curing the planter.
The Creeping Jenny is mostly what you see.
No cracking of the planter...of course I didn't hit it with a hammer to find out how strong it is.
Was thinking about putting it on blocks to make it higher...but nah, leaving it as is. Also, now I'm curious as to whether the Dead Nettle already in ground will somehow attach itself on outside of the Tufa !
Still blooming are Impatiens wallerian in full sun.
New blooms on Butterfly bush.
Gaura lindheimeri 'Karalee Petite Pink'.
Unknown white climbing roses.
Scaevola aemula or New Wonder Fan Flower. Great annual.
Knock Out roses.
Volunteer Morning Glories
Phlox paniculata 'cosmopolitan'
Too good to be true...Geranium
And still producing are DH's tomatoes.
German Murphy heirloom tomato made for a great sandwich.
Nice acidity and sweet balance.
Never been a fan of salt but...funny thing about tomatoes...
salt brings out the different flavors.
If you don't hear from me for a week or so....
Shortly... It's Vacation Time !!
