July 08 when I went nuts and planted a ton of sunflowers in the bed. Nuttiest thing I ever did but it was pretty while it lasted until a storm came along and destroyed them.
And then in September 08. I love the Purple Fountain Grass with the Vista Silverberry. The pink tones play with each other nicely. The throat of the Silverberry is a blueish pink depending on the temperature…more blue in cooler climates. I measured this petunia at over 10ft in diameter. I know I can garden but my goodness!!…that is a big petunia. It took the drought and kept on blooming like this from frost to frost and then some. Our first few frost of November did not affect it but I took it out anyway. The Purple Fountain Grass was burned by the frost and I took it all out at once during a nice warm day in Novemeber.
Supertunia Vista Silverberry by Proven Winners for 2009. It also comes in bubblegum pink! I think I could use it in the back where it is hot and dry. It sure makes a statement.
