Here are the latest denizens around my house:
Portucula “Salmon Glow”
In past years the hanger gets decimated in the summer if I don’t water it every day. As a change this is a succulent, perhaps it will do better if left unattended for a few days. Perennial.
Planters in the back. (annuals)
Accompanied by dichondra:
Black and Blue Salvia
More perennials in the front planters. These are accompanied by sweet potato vines. This salvia has already taken a bit of a beating from the squirrels digging up the planters, hopefully it will rebound.
Dressing the Hydrangea
The hydrangea planted a few years ago is doing very well… so well that the grass around it is having a hard time. So I’m trying to surround it by something. Let’s see how these annuals make out.
Three galium odoratum along the front:
Two blue star creepers along the side:
Filling in the Front
Some of the annuals I planted last year didn’t survive. Here are the replacements.
Lily Asiatic “Early Joy”
This hasn’t started blooming yet.
Again no blooms in this picture, but an interesting flower.
These were growing wild in the back and on a neighbor’s yard. Any idea what this is called?
