Photos From The Garden

'Lady Emma Hamilton' Rose
Update: My new addition from David Austin Roses is now has two buds forming. I can't wait to see what they look like in person.

'Pandora's Box' Hosta
In it's second season from Great Garden Plants. This is an adorable miniature hosta. Although mine is doing well in the ground, it would make a beautiful addition to a container.

'Tequila Sunrise' Coreopsis
I purchased three of these at Lowes 3 years ago. These are on the verge of opening their blooms. Even without flowers, the foliage has a lovely variegation that keeps the plant interesting all season. It is a tough plant. I've moved them all about 3 or 4 times, and they never missed a beat. It even managed to self-seed itself twice and still maintain its variegation in its offspring. If leaves start to revert back to green (you can see a few at the bottom of this plant), just pull them off. They may be short-lived (although I haven't experienced this yet), so propagate them through division.
