Mango Tango

I so like the Mango Tango (Dasiphora fruticosa). It is has just the color and size I want to my flowerbed.

Planted two last year to the raised flowerbeds but those are not doing that well.

Now I bought few more and try a different spot. Let’s see how these will look after the winter.

The heatwave has made everything bloom and all the flowers are now opening their buds.

The irises are starting to appear as well.

It is a bit pity that up here in the north they are annuals and need to be replanted each year.

Corn Marigold

After a cool start of July we are finally going to have a heatwave up here in the north. Luckily I have a week of from the office and able t enjoy it in the summer cottage.

The corn marigolds (Glepionis segetum) are at their best and I really like the yellow cloud they have formed.

Maybe next year I will plant them to a bigger area to allow them to give even better show.
