Carla, I just got my first Salvia regla this year, did you know that it is endemic to Texas?
I had not been able to find it before, mine is not blooming yet, but looking forward to it.
This lovely plant grows in west Texas, in the Chisos mountains and it is great for butterflies and hummers.

Gorgeous flowers! Your blue noid is Leadwort...aka hardy plumbago.

Conroe, TX(Zone 9a)

Placenteria,
Your gardens are amazing. I hope I can get mine to look half this good next year. After the hurricane I have much more sun in my shady back beds!

Bonnie

Rowlett, TX(Zone 8a)

Josephine, I first saw Mountain Sage will hiking in the Chisos Mtns and fell in love immediately. It is a late bloomer, so don't be surprised if yours doesn't bloom for another few weeks (mine bloomed early this year).

Carla

Conroe, TX(Zone 9a)

Yes, my Regla always blooms only after i have given up all hope. :-)

Waxahachie, TX(Zone 8a)

Rita, good to hear I'm not the only one who has yet to see a Spider Lily come up this year!

Obedient Plant

Waxahachie, TX(Zone 8a)

NOID plant that I dug up in Decatur this weekend. It looks like some sort of salvia. Anyone know what it is?

Waxahachie, TX(Zone 8a)

Bush Morning Glory from Josephine. The hummers love it!

Mexican Bush Sage

Conroe, TX(Zone 9a)

Broncbuster,

If you get any seeds from your bush morning glory I would love to trade for some seeds. My seed list is rather short. (actually it's nonexistent at the moment.) I don't know the names of some of the plants. I do have 3 kinds of daisies, some lavender butterfly bush, red salvia, maybe some Texas Star Hibiscus, mixed zinnias, Texas redbud, and hopefully more later if I can figure out how to harvest the seeds. (I am new at this gardening!)

Bonnie

Waxahachie, TX(Zone 8a)

Bonnie- if I get seeds, they're yours!

Carla- I'm still waiting on the Salvia regla you gave me last spring to bloom. Yours looks gorgeous!

Rowlett, TX(Zone 8a)

Don't give up on the Regla, TJ, it really is a late bloomer. But well worth the wait. :-)
