Thanks everyone for telling me that I have
been sent the wrong flowers. I thought that silly
fake phlox looked more like a Sweet William or a
Dianthus.Since returning it to the company is out of
the question I guess it will have to stay. Maybe it was
just an honest mistake on the nurseries part.
It is definitely not what I ordered but it is a flower ;-)
She will have to be moved this fall though because she
does not belong in that part of the garden.
Now it is on to " Fertilizer Friday" and thanks
to Tootsie at Tootsie Time for sponsoring a
fantastic way to flaunt those flowers.
Come join in over at Tootsie's and Flaunt your Flowers!
This is the first time that I have grown Morning Glory
Bushes convoivulus from seed and I am loving them.
I saw the little charmer one one of these great garden
blogs on Botanical and just had to try it.
The Morning Glory vines take over a large area and
sometimes seed into places I do not want them. These
bushes can be grown in containers easily. You get all
the beauty of morning glories but in a compact plant.
I got the mixed seeds and have blue, pink and white
blooms with bright yellow centers. Of course the blue
ones are my favorite.They are a true blue though my
pictures may not always show them off as such.
The different light angles make them appear
purple sometimes. If you do put them into containers
be sure to add other flowers to the mix because they
close their blooms in the afternoon.
Oh, by the way, the Japanese Beetles love them too
as you can see from all of the holes in the leaves.
The little pests.
Happy Gardening Everyone and Flaunt Those Flowers!
