This little Red Fox Veronica was new to my garden this year and has done very well. I especially look forward to next year when it will fill out more.
My plumbago and bunny tail grass looked so pretty together this year.
I love how fluffy each seed head is and how reliable it has been.
Of course the Mexican petunia and lantana are Texas garden staples.
I love all colors and types of salvias. They do great in the Texas heat and light
This was started from some seed gathered from another garden. I had actually forgotten that I had sown some last fall and so it was such a nice surprise when I had these beautiful blooms pop up in some areas that tended to be trouble spots before. And my goats, Bert and Ernie did not seem to munch on them at all. Good news! Not sure what kind it is though. Could it be a tithonia?
This lantana grew to be as tall as me (5' 4 ") and about 4 foot wide. I finally trimmed it up and that helped it to look so pretty. I have been told you can create topiary with these. This one might be a good one to train each year.
This pretty Esperanza will probably perish in the cold this summer. I planted it in a pot that could probably be moved but it is such a heavy pot to move and I have already crowded my home with so many plants. Sometimes I have to make choices about which to save. I am hoping to make a greenhouse this next year so that I won't have to let this happen anymore.
This pretty red rose is just outside my front door. It has the prettiest blooms every year. I am not sure what rose it is because it was planted before we had the home.
I have lots of mums. I have been working on getting my garden to have a wonderful fall display. I have a ways to go yet but I work on it bit by bit.
Here is another shot of one of the velvety red roses just outside my front door.
Here is another salvia that I planted from seed. It was supposed to be a miniature variety but it gets pretty tall. this one reached 3 feet. I still really liked it.
