On Thursday, I saw a hummingbird sitting on our dogwood tree by the front door. This heavily influenced my purchases towards hummingbird flowers. I also bought a feeder, and I think I will try to make other feeders throughout the summer.
One of my colleagues from school has prairie garden in which certain plants were taking over and needed weeding out. This meant free plants for me!
Strawberries – Ozark Beauty
Sweet Hungarian Banana Peppers
Portulaca – Sundial Mix
Upright Fuchsia (Fuchsia hybrida)
Lady in Red
Black and Blue Sage (Salvia guarantica)
Euphorbia – Diamond Frost
Scented Geranium – Fingerbowl Lemon (Pelargonium x crispum minor)
Rosemary (Rosmarinus officnalis)
Provence Lavender (Lavandula x intermedia)
Prairie Plants (and I need to look up the scientific names, which I should know)
New England Aster
Sky Blue Aster
Smooth Blazing Star
Two other yellow composites, which I don't remember what they are nor do I recall their names just from seeing the leaves)
Purple Poppy Mallow
I love plants! I will post pictures soon.
