This is the time of the year when stores and nurseries
are selling their perennials, shrubs, and trees at bargain
prices.It is so fun to go and find half price and below
plants that you can add to your growing flower beds
I was able to pick up a three new ones last week on
my quest at the clearance sales.
This is one of the phlox that they had on clearance.
I really love tall phlox in the garden and after going
around and giving them the sniff test, this one I had to get.
"Laura" phlox as you who have it in the garden is
the most fragrant flower and I was hooked from the start
and carried two of them home with me.
I got this little Mandeville vine for half price. I have
always wanted one but they are priced a little high
and then there was the possibility that they may not
survive over wintering in my home. But at half price I
thought it would be worth a chance to have a flower
I had been wanting for so long and experiment to see
if I could keep it going. It needed some tender care
and sunshine but it has a few buds coming out on it.
Now I am waiting to see the "Crimson's" blooms open.
This is another beauty I was able to get two of.
Campanula ' Sentimental Blue' and its blooms are
really a true blue. They are a lower growing and spreading
type. I have Chattle Charm and a White Peach bloom in
some areas of the garden but they tend to flop over and
need some staking at times so I was glad to get this one
to add to the front of some flowers.
The blooms are larger also than my other campanula's.
With the cooler and wetter July we have been having in Ohio
the new plants seem to be doing very well adjusting to
their new homes.
I only wish now that I had gotten more of the "Laura" phlox ;-)
Happy Gardening Everyone!
