Carol at May Dreams Garden is having the much anticipated Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. I’ve been getting settled in my new home since April and haven’t felt back to myself until this week. Thank you Carol. I’m a bit late due to winds and rain but here they are—-The Garden Bloggers Bloom Day family of flowers.
Proven Winners Let’s Dance™ Starlight
This plant is finally starting to take off in my garden. This is my first bloom!
This lantana grew to gigantic proportions! It is at least 7ft all around.
Southern Wax Myrtle, evergreen—the female produces berries for the birds to enjoy. It will reach to 20 ft. The leaves smell wonderful. The berries are used to make bayberry candles. I’m going to give that a try. The leaves can be boiled or crushed to add a nice clean scent to your home.
I just planted these about two weeks ago. They are Spring stock that didn’t sell. The original price was $169! I got them for $50. It pays to know what your plants will do as these looked badly when I got them but I knew they would live. They are tough.
