Planted Hardy Hibiscus, Turk's Cap, and Perennial Sage Today

Saturday, August 08, 2015

Gotta get ready for the hummingbirds to come back through in a couple months.

First time I can bestir myself, I want to get a couple of dwarf lantana hanging baskets for the patio to attract butterflies. I'm telling myself that the weather will start to cool back in about a month if we can just make it that long. Right now, it is only 98 but the heat index makes it feel like 106. Mercy!

Stay cool!

    What varieties and colors of hardy hibiscus did you plant? I have some of the edible types, but I'd love to have some dinnerplates. I have a large swath of grass outside the wall of my courtyard that I'm allowed to plant, so I'm going to be trying to get some seeds next year and plant them there. I want Lunas and I'd love an Althea.

    Your garden & plants sounds lovely. Even with our high heat, our hummingbirds stay around, gathering at the feeder mornings & eves. Love watching them. Hope yours return soon.
