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.

Elke

The Elkes (Geranium sanguineum ‘Elke’) are doing fine. They made it through the winter and have been blooming the whole summer.

Bought few more to the new flowerbed I have been building to have some reliable bloomers in it.

Their flowers are a bit delicate when it comes to rain and wind but new ones emerge often so it is not a big problem.

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.
