When flowers and plants become a passion, as with any hobby, then your time and money are in jeopardy.
As my love affair with roses continue, I have found another favorite: Sheila’s Perfume Floribunda Rose. I was a little hesitant to order a rose from Breck’s, but it arrived healthy and does have the promised aroma.
It is planted in a pot until the flowerbed is prepared. Back-breaking work is in progress to get it ready.
After last year’s success with Petunias, I had to plant some this year. Who knew they would last all summer and into the fall. The Spiral Tush Curly Wurly (Juncid effusus) was saved from the pot the petunias were in last year. Like the look of the combination of them.
Sweet Broom (Cytisus x spachianus) called to me as I entered Walmart. Great marketing technique – grab shoppers’ attention even before they enter the door. This plant needs six hours of daily sun. Good to go there, but it is winter hardy for zone 9 – 11, so we’ll see how that goes.
The Spider Worts (Tradescantias) are just finishing their spring flowering.
Hope your springtime is filled with a chance to enjoy lots of flowers.
