To read my complaining on a previous post, you would think that my garden had become a dry wasteland. My plants are actually holding up pretty well, considering that we have gotten less than three inches of rain the entire summer. What has kept me so busy watering is one bed that I completely replanted this spring, and various other individual new plantings scattered here and there. Anything that is two years old and well established has been pretty much on its own.
So here's what's blooming in August:
Lantana, my "butterfly magnet."
Hummingbird Licorice/Hummingbird Mint (Agastache)
Butterfly Weed (Asclepias tuberosa)
Coreopsis, Aster, Black-Eyed Susan
Anthony Waterer Spirea
Angelonia (First time we've grown this annual. It loves to bake in full afternoon sun! The hummingbirds visit it from time to time.Take a tour of everybody's gardens on the 15th of each month at May Dreams Gardens!
