Planting in August and September, wow. I don't think you could dig a hole in my soil right now with anything but a pick-ax. So hot, no rain...

LOREE — ​It has been dry enough that I have been watering significantly. But we've had almost 3 inches of rain between Friday and yesterday, so everything is happy. However, it is now so hot and ​humid there is a heat advisory and I am staying indoors.

I'm glad your plants have done so well! The Agapanthus look great - by comparison, I did NOT see blooms on my newer Agapanthus this year, although at least the plants are still alive. I love both the phlox and the Angelica, neither of which I've been able to grow here.

KRIS — I have been watching garden videos on Vimeo from the Northwest Perennial Alliance. Can't believe what they can grow and it is all so big and lush and mossy. 


Wow, maybe I need to try Agapanthus again. I had blooms for a couple of years, but they just didn't come back one year. I agree with you about the elegance of that phlox, and the Angelica is incredible!!

Your garden is lovely. I've heard nice things about 'Jeana' this year--I'll be on the lookout for it to try also. Have a good week.


Jeana is so different. I saw it for sale last week and almost took one home, but I'm worried it might not go well with the other phlox... as if that's ever stopped me before :)
Of course I love the agapanthus, and the Angelica is cool! I have one blooming again this year, just starting. They don't really like it here but every now and then one gathers enough strength to flower.
