@Kate6b,
Here’s my Rose Mallow. In ground coming back every year.


#625

Some more picks from my garden. Cactus zinnias, calendulas, chicory, snapdragon, basils.


#626

Great combination, very colorful


#627

Beautiful flower! Love the color.

Mine is called hibiscus moscheutos Luna series which is rose marrow as well?


#628

Wow, double wow!


#629

You cannot dislike the honest zinnia. My grand mother’s and husbands favorite flower. One of mind too. So strong!


#630

Colorado Red Star artichoke that I let go to flower, coneflowers in the background. I was surprised by how pretty the artichoke flowers are! It is my first time seeing them.


#631

I agree. For such a beautiful flower, I think I should have to work harder to grow them! But nope, these are the blessing of my garden. Plant the seeds and enjoy the show.

@HollyGates, That is a really unique and beautiful flower! What a bonus!

Thanks for posting the calendulas. I was not sure what species of daisy I had growing and dropping seed. The wild bees seem to be crazy for them.


#633

Well,my lady of the night is blooming so is dragon snaps. I love to grow dragon snaps. It is carefree and continuous bloom till very later into fall. Flowers are in various colors and interesting shaped

Kate6,
Yes, hibiscus moscheutos is the botanical name of Rose Mallow.


#635

No one is growing clematis hibrids? I plant my small ones for the first time and will have the first flower opening in near time… :blush:


#636

My subtopic is summer lack of flowers on my lantana. They seem really late starting to bloom but they are slowly starting. They aren’t beautiful like all yours but maybe this will be a start to better things ahead.

@Auburn,
I bought Lantana because it reminds my of my school years way back. We had huge lantanas bushes near the school entrance.

I feed it with petunia food. It works well.


#638

Mine have exploded


#639

I have the only two (I think) hardy lantana to my zone 7b, miss huff and chapel hill. Miss huff gets quite bushy, loved by butterflies but the coolest visitors are the hummingbird moths


#640

Some pics of Rose of Sharon blooms down by the woodshed. Guess it has two different trees due to the different colors.


#641

Clematis Westerplatte


#642

One of the few things that thrive in Florida heat and humidity in August. These Hibiscus love it and will have a ton of flowers soon. Dozens of buds on there!!!
