Was so excited when these hardy members of the Hibiscus family bloomed. I bought them last fall at the end of the season at 80% off and they were almost dead and labeled as White " Marsh Mallows"
I bought four plants and they all made it! Two were the white they were all labeled and two where these Pinks! Love the deep red centers and the beautiful shade of pink. These babies not only survived...believe me I had my doubts they looked so pitiful when I bought them...but they are over 6 ft. tall. Apparently they are very happy where they are planted.
The Dahlias have not done so well this year at all. Some did not even come up and a lot of them are very short plants and no blooms :( This one is usually very tall and the blooms the size of large dinner plates. Not this year. It's only 4 foot tall and the bloom is only about 6 inches across.
The Rose Moss has done well in its containers this year. I think it loves dry earth and heat.
Some wild Phlox I saw on my walk down by the creek today.
Hope things are still blooming for you in world!
