My iris are just getting started good....this is "Team Spirit"....two blooming together makes for an intresting photo

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Team Spirit indeed Sharon! LOvely iris drthor, the new one looks like a sherbert dessert! The front looks lovey. Is the salvia 'Hot Lips'? Moving mine from back to front where it should get sun longer.

Irving, TX(Zone 8a)

yes, I think the Salvia is hot lips. Mine is in full sun !
I bought a few plants one september at Lowe's for just $1 !!!
The plants didn't have any tag and they looked bad ... but alive ... but I knew they would come back the year after !!
It is funny to watch the Bumble Bees in the summer on this plant.
The Salvia flowers are so small ... but the Bumble Bees on them are huge and the all branch will bend. Funny !!

Fort Worth, TX(Zone 8a)

Yes, it is a very soft branched plant, bet it is a site. Mine grows great, I will be bringing a few to RU; found them separate from mother when digging to move. It rarely ever blooms where it has been hoping full sun will do it good. I had to cut it back so it won't stress, but I know it will recoop.

Oh they look so beautiful and lush!
The roses finally started blooming here,but it turning out to be so hot and dry. I'm considering this year a gardening "bust" :0(

Alba, TX(Zone 8a)

What rose is that in post #8487752?

Irving, TX(Zone 8a)

Belinda Dream - amazing tea rose of the Earth-Kind series

Grand Saline, TX(Zone 7b)

Here you go, Terri. This is the without water version .lol

Alba, TX(Zone 8a)

That one is on my "Non-Austin" wish list. I did not know this was a Tea rose. Perhaps I am confused as I also want Belinda, the hybrid musk.

Irving, TX(Zone 8a)

terri_emory the majority of my roses are all Earth-Kind = disease free = no fuss = no dead heading = almost no water = beautiful leaves and flowers
I buy all my roses from Chamblee roses. They are absolutely amazing. Only $8.95 for a gal. plant, already old and estabilished. Very cheap shipping too.

My favorite of the Earth-kind roses is: Caldwell Pink

Grand Saline, TX(Zone 7b)

Is it a Tea? It certainly doesn't have the usual nodding blooms like a tea. I've only seen it classified as a shrub. I don't have Belinda, but BD should be welcome in any Texas garden :0)

Alba, TX(Zone 8a)

drthor, I'm kind of adventuresome with my roses. I try to pick roses that will suit my climate, but other than that....Austins, shrubs, Teas, Large Flowered Climbers, and hybrid musks are options. I do visit Chambee's every few months. In fact, they are one of the reasons I chose to move to East Texas. I have two wish lists: one for the non-Austin roses and the second is mostly just the David Austin catalog! Check out some of the Buck roses Chamblees lists in their catalog. Very worthy roses indeed.

I didn't used to water much, but DH ran a line from the well in the goat pasture to the yard. So now I am busy setting up drip irig. for most of my little darlings.

Grand Saline, TX(Zone 7b)

We cross posted Drthor. We east texas gals know the dangers of Chamblees.lol

Finally edited some pics.
