Oh my 1300 ......................... wow I think I am speechless.

La Plata, MD(Zone 7a)

And my back aches from all the weeding and other chores, but at peek bloom time it all seems worth it. Of course know, as we begin to wind down and the summer drought settles in, I'm not so sure. Oh, yeah I am.

Melvindale, MI(Zone 5a)

I have a little over 300 and it is getting too much to take care of.

I recently purchased 40 from a DL farm going out of business....until then I only had about 25 and that included about 10 new ones that I added this year to replace some lost over the winter of 2010-11 and the drought of last summer. It so hot and so dry though..... I am probably going to be questioning my judgement at trying to add ANY with the weather like this! I can't imagine how ya'll manage to keep all the beds cleaned out and everything watered! But I sure enjoy the blooms from all your labors..............

Genna

Melvindale, MI(Zone 5a)

It's not easy. I am questioning myself too. The older I get the harder it is to keep them weeded. It is real dry here too. No rain in sight. I wish that tropical storm would head up this way.

Camden, AR(Zone 8a)

We did have a nice rain two weeks ago - but it was the first one in months and we were so far below normal that it just got slurped up. We never even came out of the burn ban...............and no rain in sight! I am watering plants, but if this lack of rain continues there will come a point when I won't be able to do so because we are on a well. We haven't really had much rain since the fall of 2010 - just spurts here and there but I don't think we have been to normal rainfall since then. I am thinking maybe I should be planting cactus or something! :(

Melvindale, MI(Zone 5a)

Wow, that's awful.

Hazel Crest, IL(Zone 5a)

Genna are you piling on the mulch to cut down on frequent watering ?

Camden, AR(Zone 8a)

Yep .... piling the mulch on - but still watering all my new babies once a day, or almost every day. Since the temps have hit 100 - I have been watering almost everything I have that was planted last fall or this Spring every day. I have sandy soil and the water doesn't stick around long. My older more established plants are not getting watered every day............at least not yet. On my foundation planting that I have started, I tried to do a lot more amending to the soil before we ever planted the first plant. It appears that it is paying off because the new plants are doing really well there, of course, as my husband said last night, we still have to make it thru July and August!!

I really like How Beautiful Heaven Must Be. The first time it bloomed for me, I noticed it pulling into my drive and had to go find out who it was. A true beauty.

Gary

Camden, AR(Zone 8a)

It is definitely beautiful and that so is Startle ....another two for the want list! Love several of the others too so I guess I am doing good just to add 2 to the list. ^_^

Melvindale, MI(Zone 5a)

Thanks Linda!!! Of those you mentioned, Cherry Custard Cheesecake has improved the most this year. It must like all the heat we are getting. It hardly bloomed for me for the past 3 years but this year it is really taking off.
