from the front garden I have purple cone flower, purple ballon flower and liatris
in a very small and controlled area I have goose neck loosestrife, I've learned these little gals cannot be trusted to stay put! Although I love them besure to keep them under control.
This is Nikko blue hydrangea. I rarely feed her and so I get pink blooms...I'm okay with that. I've found this plant to be extremely picky. It doesn't like the sun, it will wilt. But it has to have some sun or it won't bloom. It blooms on old growth so be sure to protect it, and it only blooms blue if you feed it acid. Way too many "I wants" for me!! I've not enough time for a "Diva" so I get a often wilted, sometimes blooming, pink hydrangea. Which is fine, but my next one will be an Oak Leaf.
