First flower ever on this guy should open today. He came up from Fallbrook with me as a tiny cutting a year and a half ago. They've been blooming all over town and he's anxious to catch up..

Cistus purpurea / Orchid Rockrose.....

Sue - your bearded irises are so much more ahead of mines. Not even at the bud stage yet. I love your bronze one too!

Perfect day here too! Nothing to post, because I spent the day cleaning up beds so I can plant what I bought yesterday. I'm beat! Hilarious! I do have a Zygo. hybrid blooming, but haven't had a chance to take pics.

The variegated prostanthera grew to that size from a 4" pot in one year. I picked it up in McKinleyville, but it came from Emerisa....lol..

Wow, that's a lot of growth in one year! Is it invasive like most mints?

It's lamiaceae and 'minty', but no, not a spreading mint as you must be thinking....
