I just finished helping my 12-year old dye his hair blue. Now on to the reds:
Hot Cocoa rose – delicious with its dark exterior petals.
Pretty nice thorns too.
Trusted Fuchsia magellanica will keep going until frost does it in.
Agastache ‘Raspberry nectar’ has a really nice, rich red…
…as does this red Salvia.
Gladiolus nanus ‘Atom’ is flopping wildly all over (not enough sun), but I enjoy its white-lined red even so.
This is what it looked like last month, when it was still upright.
Who can resist a fiery Zauschneria? Not me…
Salvia greggii ‘Flame’ is still going strong.
Stachys albomentosa – also called Hidalgo or 7-Up plant. The leaves smell like 7-Up, and it has soft, fuzzy leaves.
Another Agastache – I think this might be ‘Orange nectar’, and Schizachyrium scoparium ‘The Blues’.
… such a photogenic combo!
The flowers of Little bluestem are pretty awesome on their own too.
Anisacanthus wrightii – surely qone of the best things to come out of Texas – it’s on its third month now.
The red Abutilon is still blooming.
A shorter version than the one I really wanted. Should have read the tag, but I was just so excited to find it – a black Scabiosa.
Aster lateriflorus ‘Prince’ is doing its thing,…
…but it is nowhere near as fabulous as the one at work. I sometimes wonder if it is the same plant…
I feel like I just showed you the exact same plants as last month, and many even the month before that – just different photos. Sorry for the repetition. Click over to May Dreams Gardens to see if other gardeners can offer more than essentially a repeat of the last two months.
