How beautiful, Stephanie! Here's one I don't know the name of but makes this pretty bloom that lasts about 2-3 days. Has thin, dark green leaves.

All looks great! Stephanie, you need to post that pic of skullcap as a suggestion for catzgalore. That would be beautiful ground cover

This picture was taken a few weeks ago, but the Rose Campion loves springtime in Texas.

How does the rose campion handle our summer heat? I love that plant but never thought it would do well here.

All the pictures are beautiful!! Where have I been??

I was just gifted a rose campion like yours Carla! Love it. The guy that gave it to me lives in Edgecliff (s. FW) so I know it will do well. He said his is in sun most of the day. There have been about four blooms since I planted it last week. May have some to share at future RUs down the road.

Too tired to post mine tonight....

Colleyville, TX(Zone 8a)

morganc, just beautiful! Love the water too. Quick question about cannas. Are they shallow rooted? I am thinking of camouflaging an ugly back fence but all the cable etc lines are there,

I've had Rose Campion now for several years and it does quite well. I have mine planted in morning sun, all afternoon shade. It's one of the first things to wake up in the spring, but also starts to fade when temps get into the mid-90s. It's one of the few things that I will make an extra effort to keep watered all summer (this was one of my Dad's favorite plants, so it's kind of sentimental for me). I love having the color in the flowerbeds early in the growing season.

Carla, I love the added touch of the driftwood too.


OK....this is some of my bloomers this month...and no I do take pictures without butterflies, but it is so much fun with them. This Tiger ST found my first coneflower bloom on this plant.

Forgotten the name of this huchera....but it retains most of it's foliage during the winter.
