Friday morning garden
Shasta Daisy was invented in California by Luther Burbank.
This Fuchsia 'Miep Aalhuzien' (or something like that) is new, and it has the prettiest green leaves. I got it at the Botanical Garden. They grow tall and have tons of small pink fuchsia flowers.
Phygelius... I had this before and it didn't work out, but I want to try again. Nurseries sell a pinkish one, and I want it too.
I hope this Dahlia continues to do well under the deck.
This other area under the deck is a little too lush for me, but it is what it is.
The Dracaena marginata is a house plant. The cats were accosting it, so I put it outside. Not sure what its future is. The large-leafed Bartlettina sordida (on the left) grows up and fills this whole space during the rainy season. I had to cut it back really hard last year because winter storms shredded it.
Hopefully we'll have gentler storms this year.
