GBBD – Sept 2013
It is garden bloggers bloom day tomorrow, and this month I will share my favorite 3 blooms in my garden right now. The two Desert Willow trees (Chilopsis linearis ‘Bubba’) in my front garden have bloomed non-stop since spring…wildlife love them, and I love the hot color in the heat of the summer. Gomphrena ‘fireworks’ are still going strong – despite no watering from me since June. I love this plant, although next year I am changing this area back to a more modern look. Although I have enjoyed them immensely, and they certainly filled these areas nicely and inexpensively this season, they tend to get a little “messy” looking. Anchoring the firework frenzy, in the background, opuntia gomei ‘Old Mexico’.In the back garden, my current fav, is the cute buttery blooms on my yellow firecracker fern (Russelia equisetiformis ‘yellow’).
