I'm sure everyone is looking forward to a nice long weekend. With the days getting hotter and hotter, we are trying to finish up some planting before Summer officially arrives.
I'm still enjoying my Tiger Eye Rudbeckia. They are one tough and cute plant. The blooms are big, bright and cheerful. Perfect flower for putting in vases around your home. Had I known these guys could survive the heat, I would have planted them years ago.
I'm loving this view from my back porch. Lavender, Knockout Roses, Black and Blue Salvia, Cora Vincas, Tiger Eye Rudbeckia, Damianita and Blackfoot daises are all filling in the large back bed.
This lovely ground cover was a pass along from my Grandmother. It's delicate blooms are so sweet. Wish I had an ID on this plant.
This is the first time I've planted Narrow Leaf Zinnias. After seeing them in Jenny's garden @ Rock Rose, I knew I had to have them!
This might look like the Purple People Eater, however this plant has become my favorite obsession. After seeing pictures of it in so many Austin Garden Blogger's yards and on the Central Texas Gardener Blog, I was on the hunt for it. It is Beebalm Monarda 'Peter's Purple'.
Lastly, I just added some Peter Pan Agapanthus or Lily of the Nile. Never grown these either, so this is a first.
Have a great weekend!
