Preparing for Fall Flowering

I decided to add some more fall color to the side bed. After a look at a garden next to the Smithsonian castle, I was on the hunt for a particular Euphorbia. Merrifield enabled my ability to make it MINE!

Here's what I added today:
Euphorobia xmartinii 'Ascot Rainbow'




Sedum spectabile 'Neon'


The Sedum I have at the side of the garage is doing so well, I really wanted another one for more interest in the side bed. This one should have pinker flowers.

I made the mistake of throwing away all the spring seed packets without making note of what they are, and I regret that.
So this is my note for these new perennials.

Continuing May

These are the months where the garden is the most amazing. Every day something new happens, and you have to capture the moment.
