I ordered today these flowers for my new butterfly garden. This is the Cherry Popes Sugars Buzz Monarda(Bee Balm) Sounds nice, doesn't. They will ship in about two weeks. I have had the Monarda in red and purple. The bees and butterflies love the flower.
Polemonium Caeruleum Bressingham Purple this is another new one for me. Something must have happened to me when I fell, I am really getting brave ordering flowers I have never heard of before. Each one looked so pretty.
Sombrero Coneflower. These are shorter than the others, maybe I will not have to stick these.
This one is a Lenten Rose blooms in late winter - early spring. I ordered it in the fall, but it is not doing well. I talked with a person on Way Side Gardens and was told to mix one fourth cup of Epsom Salt to one gallon of water and pour on the plant. I read on Goggle the same thing or lime, these flowers do not like acid soil. I order 3 more. I do hope I can get them started.
Winter Helleborus this is in the same family however it is called Winter Jewel. This one is doing beautifully, however I did put some Epsom Salt on this also. I ordered three of these also. I have a shade bed that I plant annual every year. This year I will plant nothing but perennials.
I thank you for watching my garden grow and bloom. And hopeyou will grow one of your own. Happy gardening to you from Carrel and I, Juanita.
