This Coral Bean is finally blooming thanks to it's new location in the sun. I moved it last spring from a shadier spot where it never bloomed.
I love unusual flowers and this Red Hot Poker is different for sure. This first lonely bloom should be followed by a few more as spring progresses.
I wish I could say I planned this, but sometimes great combinations just happen. This Purple Cone Flower with Burgundy Castor Bean as a back drop is winning combination in my opinion.
This Gaura with it's little butterfly like blooms has not always been an easy plant for me to grow. Sometimes you just need to find the right spot for a plant to thrive. I guess I finally got it right.
I love this view of my garden looking toward my fountain. What's amazing is how this view changes throughout the year. The Larkspur and Tropicana roses blooming now will be replaced by Day Lilies, and then later in the season by Pride of Barbados.
Spring means roses and this floribunda, Gene Boerner, never disappoints.
Would you look at these crazy petunias. I planted them last spring. Winter was so mild, I don't think the petunias ever stopped blooming. Now, apparently, they want to rule the garden.
Speaking of ruling the garden, I hacked this Jerusalem Sage back last year, but it looks completely undeterred. If you're looking for a drought hardy, reliable spring bloomer. This is a great plant.
Lastly, this Variegated Purple Heart is a new addition to my garden and look, it's already blooming.
