In a Vase: Largely Lantana
All three colors went into today's vase...
I am happy to be able to pick sunflowers again this week. The larger one was cut from a stalk whose roots were partially heaved out of the soil during our wind/dust storm a week and a half ago. Unable to stake it back up, I piled compost over the roots and have tried to keep it watered. The stalk is still partially horizontal, but the buds are opening and turning up toward the sunlight. Definitely these are sturdy plants! The variety in this case is "Solar Eclipse".
Rambling in the Garden.
