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.

Garden Phlox

It is already the time for the garden phloxes to start blooming.

This old white variety is always doing well and has been cultivated in the area for decades and decades.

It blooms earlier than the new varieties I have bought and has adapted well to the harsh winters we have.

May Queen

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.
