Every year I like to try out some new plants that are offered. Some I can grown from seeds and in most cases were plants that were bought throughout the Summer.
This double blooming red Rosebud Impatiens I bought is a lovely little plant. Now I am hoping to over winter it in the house. This usually ends in failure as far as keeping impatiens. So I tried this one and liked it very much.
Snapdragons Antirrhinum just do not do well here in my hard clay but I tried them again because the seeds were from a friend.
This white blooming one is my favorite but the plants are sad.
I tried them and I am not going ever try them again.
Asarinaantirrhiniflora Vining Snapdragons. I had never tried these seeds before and although they have great masses of foliage for hanging planters the blooms were sporadic. So I tried them and will not waste space for them again.
“Pinstripe” Petunias is another new plant I tried this year. I loved the velvety black and pink blooms but have to admit it was not a wave or avalanche petunia when it came to spreading and blooming. I tried it and now I am over it.
Finally I tried this “Bill Warriner” rose this summer in the Rose Garden and fell in love with it. It has bloomed all summer long and the blooms hold their petals for a long time.
Is there a plant or seed that you tried new this summer that you could do without, hated , put up with or loved?
