Winter showers bring more flowers

November 21, 2017

 

 

I planted two Cuphea sp.'Minnie Mouse' seedlings in the Spring in one of the patio plant beds.

I wanted to have a nice hedge in the back of the bed, that also provided food for the pollinators.

The plants can grow to 3 feet high by 3 feet wide, with blossoms that provide nectar for hummingbirds.

 

 

In the late summer months the plants didn't look good in spite of my extra watering efforts for them. I thought they would wither and die.

But now that we have had some rainy days, the plants are looking good.

In the image above you see one of the Cuphea plants.

To the left of it are Agrostemma 'Ocean Pearls' and Salvia‘Hot Lips’.
