.I just planted a couple of the new plants I brought home and watered the others. I checked the tags of the two I couldn't remember earlier, and I have .....
Snow-in-Summer, Perennial, Cerastium
They went into the big iron kettles to compliment the Geraniums, Chrysanthemums, Cocks-comb and wild flower seeds that are beginning to pup up. The tag says they will cascade over the edge of borders, so I planted them close to the edge of the pots. And isn't that pretty in the rocks? I might have to get more of that, 'cause I have lots of rocks to "pretty up"!!
This is what it looks like in full-bloom. I really like this little plant.
These will go into the yard to add color to the landscape. The flowers are pink, and the foliage is red (or purple).
Both are perennials, both are good for arid conditions.
I also forgot earlier to say I bought two pots of Shasta Daisies. I love, love, love Daisies, and when I learned that they are deer-resistant, I was delighted! I'm picking mostly plants/flowers that are deer-resistant so I don't get frustrated when they come by my yard for a snack! I want to get some Black-Eyed Susans, another kind of Daisy, for contrast, as well.
I'm excited to get all this into the ground. Guess I'd better call the teenager, hadn't I? Especially since I have irritated tendonitis in both arms and an old injury to my right thumb. grrrr. I don't have time for this inconvenience. I've got things to do!!!
