Here we are – still isolated, same as you. One plus from all this time at home is more time to spend outside and to get some work done.
I just can’t help myself from showing roses. Brilliant Veranda is a small bush that does well in a pot. I had it in a pot for 3 years, but fire ants loved to hang out there. So last year, it was moved to a bed. The color is just like the name says – brilliant.
This Astible was a mail order plant that arrived last year while we were out of town. It didn’t look like it would survive, so I hastily put it in this pot. It will be moved to an area that gets some shade and receives regular water.
Native perennial Four Nerve Daisies (Tetraneuris scaposa) keep filling in spaces. However, they aren’t taking my suggestion to grow into the area in the bottom right of the picture. Just got to be patience.
They prefer rocky, well-drained soil and do not like clay. Inour raised bed, the soil has been amended and is looser than clay, so they’re happy.
Although I’ve never been able to see them, four dark purple veins are supposed to be clearly visible on both sides of the ray.
