And an annual Hare's Tail Grass. I will do lots of milk jugs of this next year. I love it.
I also WS Blue Fescue, zone5girl, but my plants are not nearly as large as yours.

Now I am really mad that I was too lazy to get my Hare's Tail grass in the ground! The seedlings all dried up and died. After seeing how cute your's are, I'll defnitely be sure to take care of them next year! Tamara

Wow you guys, you have some great blooms and are giving me all kinds of ideas for next year.

Jo, what is that deep red plant you have growing with the hare's tail? It looks very similar to something I've had for years but never known the name. Does it get quite large with the same maroon colored plumes? And self seed like CRAZY?

Calgary, AB(Zone 3a)

Hi Lala, it's Amaranthus 'Fat Spike'.
I grew it from seed started under grow lights. First time for me, but I think Amaranthus does self seed. And this one will have fuzzy purple spikes. There are lots of types of Amaranthus - maybe that's what you've got. I have another purple one called 'Velvet Curtain'.

North West, OH(Zone 5b)

Thanks for responding Joane. After doing a search on Amaranthus 'Fat Spike' my mystery plant is still a mystery. Yours appears to have deep red foliage (like mine) but all the web pictures showed the spike as a deep maroon, but the foliage is green. Plus my plumes are more,,,,well plume-like, LOL. I'll have to post a picture when it "blooms" it really is gorgeous (or else I wouldn't let a half dozen of them grow every year while I weed out the 586,946 other seedlings sprouting beside them).

Lala, did you check in the DG Plant Files? If you type Amaranthus in Genus and hit search, you'll come up with lots of different Amaranthus.

OK, here they are.

Is this diascia? I sowed tons but the no id thing was a problem. This is the only one that seems to have bloomed. I like it so much better than the ones I bought this year.

Carrie,
It looks like Anagallis to me. I just bought the 'Wildcat Blue' yesterday yesterday and they also had 'Wildcat Orange' that look like the picture you posted.

Joanne

Milton, MA(Zone 6a)

No, not that. That's an anagalis I bought. Maybe this. Oh shoot, I can't find the darn photo. Did anyone grow diascia?

xxx, Carrie

Milton, MA(Zone 6a)

Yes, Jo, I spent all that time trying to find the picture in question. Thank, though. :-(

I didn't grow mine from seed...I cheated and bought one--Proven Winners Trailing Antique Rose. Tamara

Milton, MA(Zone 6a)

Oh. I planted Angel's kiss OR blushing cherub OR something. I knew I wanted a lot. Now I have some that I bought and some that I grew.

Anita, Dear Anita, Sweet Anita!

Any chance you'd save some seed from that gorgeous Henry Eilers for me? Pretty Please?

Sea -- Nice blues. Love that Blackberry Cream Sorbet Voila.

Glad to see some of the folks up north have some blooms -- are you always just starting this late in the season? I just pulled the poppies that have finished blooming and am getting ready to pull the cornflowers...I'm in Zone 5.

Some stuff is a bit late this year, but we had a really late spring snow fall this year - May 24th, can you believe it??? It set us back a bit.
The other thing I found is that I didn't get my WS into the ground as early as I would have liked, so things are a bit later because of that too. Next year I will NOT sow 50 milk jugs. Maybe half that. LOL. Too much stuff to deal with all at once. I had to pot everything up and give a lot of it away and that was time consuming. Has been great fun, though.

Suzy - I think that I simply didn't get them in the ground early enough. While you discussing planting out lots and lots of itty bitty plants, I was taking my seedlings and putting them in little paper pots. I think had I planted them directly into the ground I would have had flowers earlier.

Milton, MA(Zone 6a)

Can we quote you on that Jo?

Calgary, AB(Zone 3a)

You mean the part about the number of WS containers? Nope. LOL.

Milton, MA(Zone 6a)

Also, next year I will LABEL what I plant so it won't be July before I figure some of these things out!

Honestly, I have really pretty flowers too, it's just that the USB port on this computer is dead, so I can't upload my pictures.
