- Papaver Antlanticum 'Flore Pleno'
- Mirabilis Multiflora
- Paeonia Lactiflora
|Thymus "Pink Chintz"|
This is some of the thyme that I planted in my spiral garden feature. It looks like cascades of tiny flowers close up.
More irises from my friend Lori. I planted them in a flower bed that I can't seem to cultivate. I've tried amending the soil and nothing but the irises and a butterfly bush grow in it.
|Papaver Atlanticum 'Flore Pleno' (Moroccan/Spanish Poppy)|
This Flore Pleno was the new poppy that I tried last year. I can't wait to see it flower. Two of the three I planted started coming up this spring, but one of the many intermittent spring frosts killed the second one. Alas, I only have one left. I've read that it's supposed to reseed profusely!
|Mirabilis Multiflora (Desert Four O'clock)|
I was glad to see the desert four o'clock leaf out. I had forgotten I'd planted it and couldn't figure out why there weren't any plants near some of the drippers.
I planted three peonies last summer and all three of them came back! One of them looks a little haggard and not as sprightly as the others. Hope it makes it through the next few weeks.
