Coral Rose

Roses are blooming all over the neighborhood, including this lovely coral rose. I don’t see many of these as people opt for more typical white, Pink or yellow roses.

Brunfelsia (Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow) flower in the garden

I planted these shrubs back in November 2016 and now they are flowering fully for the first time. The flowers change from purple to lavender to white over the course of a few days.

How to Build a Raised Bed with Benches via Bonnie Plants

This half-day project makes gardening easier and more comfortable. It’s higher than most raised beds, so you don’t have to bend over quite as much, plus it has a bench on each side so you can sit while you plant, weed, and harvest. This is an ideal garden set-up for older gardeners, folks with back or knee problems, or anyone simply looking for an attractive, unique style of raised bed to add to the yard.

What are your thoughts on this Interesting Plant? Drop a note in the comments!

Alumroot. A perennial with small, grape-like leaves, only 3″ high, shade to part shade, garden conditions, good with small ferns in shady rock gardens. Heuchera rubescens is a tough plant. It’s hardy to about -10F. This Alumroot grows fine at lower elevations and grows best under typical garden conditions. It is not as drought tolerant as its lower elevation cousins.This alumroot does well with other rock garden subjects from higher elevations such as Heuchera hirsutissima, Heuchera merriami, and Zauschneria latifolia(Epilobium canum ssp. latifolium). (Botanists have bickered over this species and its subspecies for years. We have noticed big differences between some of the species and subspecies lumped together in the new Jepson. Here we list the ones on which we noticed differences. see Intermountain Flora 3a page 40 for an excellent review of the ‘problem’.) – Las Pilitas Nursery
