|sweet alyssum, in the back pipe garden|
This is Senna artemisioides, also known as Feathery Cassia or Silver Cassia. One of the branches is starting to flower! I think that's early for this plant, but since it was just planted last year, I'm not sure. This is a drought tolerant, interesting-looking plant, native to Australia.
|This one has grown a lot -it started from a small (1/2 gal?) size|
|I wonder how it will taste...|
The front garden doesn't have a lot of blooms, but the Camellia japonica near the front door has started to bloom! I'm glad I found something that will grow in this shady spot, and tolerate the summer heat. It seems to be doing OK with no water in the fall/winter, and a twice weekly watering week in the summer.
|I like seeing the blooms right next to the front door|
|Rosa 'Blaze' - apparently this species was introduced in 1932...|
Happy New Year! May 2013 give you the garden you always wanted!
