  1. That is just so beautiful.
    It just looks too delicate to flower in such heat, but it really thrives in temperatures that make most other plants curl up and die

    1. It certainly gives me hope that I really can pull together a garden that will still look good - and bloom - at this time of year ;-) Granted, I think the fact that it's still blooming in midsummer is an anomaly of it having been newly started (I picked the youngest plant on the shelf). But you're quite right: it's an amazing plant!

  2. What a beauty! Love its petals!
    But your temperature... 106? Hold on there!

    1. It gets a bit warm... Of course, that does give me the chance to grow things (like crape myrtle) that wouldn't grow well in cool-summer areas! Thanks for dropping by :)

  3. That's a tree I've always coveted. Unfortunately, it's prone to mildew near the coast here.

  5. Isn't it? I'm so pleased I picked this up despite knowing nothing about the variety beforehand ;-)
