Here's what else is going down at Les Jardines D'ONG:
The Clethra (Summersweet) 'Ruby Spice' did not bloom at all for me last year but it has bounced back like mad this year. I'd love to report on how phenomenal the flower scent is, but you know, I have virtually no sense of smell:
The blooms on Pennisetum (Fountain grass) 'Karley Rose' are so underrated even when they are no longer a bright pink color. Note to self: need to add more:
I've seen very little on the internet regarding Panicum (Switch grass) 'Ruby Ribbons' and it has honestly underwhelmed ever since I picked one up a few years ago. But ..... just look at that leave color and you can see the potential it has:
It has taken a while to establish, but Acorus gramineus (Sweet Flag) 'Oborozuki' is starting to look good lining my driveway. It takes well to all of the water that drains off of the driveway and it is one of the few plants where I can actually pick up the scent on the leaves when they are scratched up a bit:
And whenever you can impress a six year old, you do it:
Garden your ass off!
