Spring is the time to prepare for fall, so this month is a good time to think about your September garden.
A list of the plants that carry my garden through the tough days of August.
When we consistently plant the colors we like, it usually happens that the color scheme pleases us overall.
Natives with long tap roots like the bright orange butterfly weed are completely unfazed by the heat, as are shrubs like crepe myrtle and caryopteris.
Daisies are members of the Compositae family, which consists of 950 different genera and over 20,000 species.
Japanese Beetles love roses, hollyhocks, crepe myrtle and hibiscus especially, and I dislike them with a passion for ruining my flowers.
I love it for its wealth of golden flowers, which fill my vases from mid summer to mid fall.
