Brilliant

The Brilliant (Sedum spectabile ‘Brilliant’) is blooming beautifully.

It is a new variety I bought this year and I like the color. The others I have are variations of darker pink.

Most of the other flowers are now gone and it makes the sedums stand out. The first frost came few days ago but does not yet affect hardy plants like sedums which are going to continue blooming several weeks from now.

Sandved

Sandved (Dasiphora fruticosa ‘sandved’) is a new variety I bought this year.

It seems to be doing well and has been blooming several months.

It should be very hardy but time will tell. It would be nice addition to the flowerbed.

Ball’s Orange

I just love the orange color Marigolds (Calendula officinalis ‘Ball’s orange) have. It is so bright and striking.

It always surprises me how much water they need to grow well. The summer here has been dry and some of my Marigolds are still dwarfs and not blooming.

Well I guess I just enjoy the ones that made it.
