This week we’re received almost 2 inches of rain. Depending on where you live, that may not sound like much, but it’s a blessing to us.
After planting it in the middle of a flower bed, I read that they should be planted alone. Oh, well, we’ll see what happens in the future.
The other day, I gave this Chinese Pistache (Pistacia chinensis) tree a hair cut. Each spring the lower branches dip down to the ground. Sorry I didn’t get a picture of that. Anyway, it becomes impossible to move around the tree. Cutting off the low hanging branches doesn’t seem to hurt the tree at all.
Want a drought tolerant plant that spreads and has a wonderful aroma when touched, try Russian Sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia). They are native to the Himalayas, so it seems that they would not do well in our dry area. Strangely, the Himalayas in India have massive amounts of precipitation, but in Tibet, arid conditions exist.
On the edge of our porch sits this pot of Rose Moss that has been here for years. Some or all of the moss returns in the spring. This year, it needed to be supplemented with some new plants. Love the yellow ones.
Hope your spring (almost summer) has received some rain.
