PURPLE CONE FLOWER

 

We must be doing something right

in our garden because

We have BEES...

and they are scooping' up lots of pollen

on my PURPLE CONE FLOWER

and zinnias.

 

 

It was amazing to watch these bees

methodically scoop the pollen from

the stamens of the cone flowers.

If you look closely,

you can see glumps of pollen

on the side of their bodies.

Hyacinth Beans...
.. are very showy in any garden.

Buy seeds at any local gardening center.

They are climbers,

so give them a place to run

and something to attach to and

they  will give you constant pleasure

until it freezes.

 

First, these blooms produce

wonderful flower pods  

that look like sweet peas

that transition into seed pods.

Allow the seed pods to dry before plucking.

 

 

Store seeds in a cool dry place

and you will have lots of flowers for next year.

 

They kinda grow like potato vine...so water away...

my experience is that they love to be fed.

So once in awhile give them a boost of

'bloom boosting fertilizer' and

your rewards will be great!

Petunias and Violas
are such a great mix inthe garden.
 
Keep in mind petunias take a lot of water...but are heat tolerant.  If your petunias get too leggy, just trim the back and they will produce new stems. 
 
 

 
Primrose - Morning
 

I planted these a few years ago.  I love them. 

They give such a delicate feel to a garden.

They have now spread out to cover a 3 x 3 foot area…grow about 8-10 inches tall.   I have them planted in full sun.  They like a deep watering every so often.

Trumpit Flower Plants

 

are amazing and dramatic.

I have heard that they will

take over if you let them...

Look up inside them. They are kind of tuberous;

therefore, the branches of the tree break easily,

but are easily rooted into new plants

 

Thyler gave me this yellow plant.

 

 

This color is sea shell.


I love violas; however they do fade

once the summer heat gets above a consistent 90.

 

 

 

 

 

Violas

 

 

 

Some folks call them

'Johnny Jump Ups'

 

 


 

 

 

 

Zinnias

 

 

 Sooooo many colors & heights to choose from...sow from seeds

for about $ 1.50/pkg or

purchase seedlings for about $ 2.50/plant...

sometimes they even

come back the next year.
