|One of my front flower beds|
Luckily, I have a great friend that always has plants to share and I found some clearance and sale plants that have me going good again this year.
|My front Porch and some of my pretties!|
The beds in front of our house are going like gangbusters!! Here are some photos I took of some beauties that I love to water and tend to and nurture.
Had I known these were perennials, I'd have been buying them long ago!
|White Vinca. (Annual) I usually buy pink or red. |
They grow and spread and the dark green
leaves contrast so nicely with the bright flowers.
|New Guinea Impatiens (Annual)|
I had this pot in the sun but they were getting burnt.
So, I put them in the shade and now they are thriving.
|The Tot is helping to water.|
Coleus come in many different varieties and colors.
I love Lantana! I especially love the orange and the pink ones.
|Elephant Ears (Perennial?)|
I question this because you can trim the bulb, winter it in the garage or basement and replant.
Next year I plant to get MUCH bigger bulbs which will result in GIANT ears!
This was on sale and has been the greatest addition to my flower garden!
|I don't know the name of this but it's a Perennial. |
I plan to divide and share it this Fall in other garden sections.
|Sweet Potato Vine. (Annual)|
These are fantastic in a pot. They cascade so beautifully and the light leaves
contrast with other dark leaved plants.
This is a transplant from my friend, Joyce. I hope they spread and fill out.
I won four pots of this at an Amish Produce Auction. I only paid $4 each!
. Each pot contained three different types of Coleus.
|Asiatic Pink Lillies (Perennial)|
I planted two Lillies last summer from a flower sale. This year it turned into three plants.
Maybe by next Spring I can split them and share some Lillies in the Perennial garden out back.
