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.
It has been dry up here in the north. We have not gotten a good rain for a month now.
Sitting in a summer cottage and watching a thunderstorm going past but not close enough for any rain.
You can see the dryness from the plants. Lack of water makes them smaller and better suitable for the dry weather.
The May Queens are doing well though. They are perfectly suited for long dry periods and seem to enjoy the weather.
We are already enjoying the garden phloxes up here in the north.
My grandma always had garden phloxes blooming in her garden. Then we lost them for decades but luckily got some from a neighbor.
White ones are doing well and introduced a new color last year but it seems to be a late bloomer and for her to display the flowers we need to wait a bit longer.
