Favorite or New Plant

Filipendula rubra 'Venusta'
Queen-of-the-prairie (Filipendula rubra 'Venusta') certainly does reign supreme over the garden in July. Her deep pink flower sprays resemble cotton candy and command attention when she reaches 5 to 7 feet tall. This plant is adaptable to moist or average soils, and it spreads into a large clump so give it plenty of room. It's easily divided so you can spread out the show.

Web Finds

Rose Magazine
Rose Magazine is a site for rose lovers, full of feature articles, care tips, resources, and more. I like the organic suggestions for pests and diseases, especially the homemade fungicidal spray made from onion, garlic, baking soda, and hot pepper.
