Fairly drought resistant, but needs staking if in the open.
Hops on Arch Trellis
Hops comes up from the ground each year in our garden but covers the arch by August.
One of my August favorites, more lush that black-eyed Susans.
Globe Thistle and Sea Holly
Martian looking and great for dried arrangements
Hanging Basket and Bird Bath
I love coconut fiber for lining frames.
Wood Shed Garden
A mixed bed near the house that is showy all summer.
Larkspur and Primose Relative by Trellis Bench
These two perenials produce for a couple of months with little effort much to my delight
Inside Entrance Barrel
Has worked well with very good potting soil in this hot spot
Nasturtiums and Fall Clematis
Best nasturtiums I've had: planting higher kept them from early freezes.
Mass of Sea Holly
The soft lavender color contrasts with the spiky stiffness of the flowers.
Vegie & Sunflower Garden
OK, I've let more sunflower reseed! Mostly we do tomatoes, basil, greens, and pumpkins.
Tall Fall Asters and Autumn Joy
Autumn Joy is starting to pink up. Always mixed feelings -- beautiful, but a sign of the end of the season.
