Rose Bliss Parfuma
Will
Palatine Spring 2018.
Geneva Bugleweed (Ajuga genevensis)
Have
In its first season it is very well behaved. Long blooming, but not very spectacular, yet. Annies 2017. The heavy monsoons seem to have washed it out of the garden, (metaphorically, not literally); but either way it is gone.
Hollyhock (Alcea rosea)
Prev
Planted outside the fence it was quickly nibbled to nothing, repeatedly. Annies 2017.
Angelica (Angelica sylvestris 'Purpurea')
Have
From Annies. Growing with Artemesia 2017. Surprised to find new growth nibbled by rabbits.. (20 JUN 17) . In August it is showing robust new growth that is adorably purple. In April 2018 it is nowhere to be seen, though in fall one root system was discovered while planting narcissus.
Absinthe (Artemisia absinthium)
Have
Three inhabit the herb garden, three are in the Almond Tree Bed. They were hewn to the ground this spring (2018) and are bouncing back nicely.
Silvermound Artemisia (Artemisia schmidtiana 'Silver Mound')
Have
Its foliage is very fragrant, and the plant thrives in poor, dryish, heavy soil. It's such a durable and pleasing plant that there's one area of the garden given over to this plant and plants that complement it best, including white iris, white roses, and red roses.
Bachelor's Button (Centaurea cyanus 'Blue Boy')
Prev
Annies Annuals 2017 - listed as centaurea cyanus Blue Diadem batchelor buttons. Growing very quickly and blooming very nicely in early June. Quite wonderful. But short lived. Died in July. Plant more.
Red Valerian (Centranthus ruber)
Have
The first three instances of this plant in my garden I planted. The six or twelve that now grow between the roses in the partly shaded areas are volunteers. Hawkmoths and butterflies are very fond of its flowers. It is a perfect complement to white and light pink roses. I'll occasionally pull them up where they compete with something else; but I doubt I'll ever pull up the last one. (High Country Gardens)
Clematis (Clematis viticella 'Madame Julia Correvon')
Have
From Annies 2017. The flowers are smaller and not quite so dark as advertised. But it seems to be a durable plant.
St. John's Chamomile (Cota tinctoria var. sancti-johannis)
Prev
This is not a very drought tolerant plant. It keeps dying. Good only near paths where it will get very regular water. Annies 2017
Belladonna Delphinium (Delphinium 'Bellamosum')
Have
Six, mostly in LBE, but also near R. Crocus Rose and Malvern Hills to deter gophers. The one near Pink Lady Apple is going great guns already in mid April. (White Flower Farm) By June two were falling over, and propped up with tomato cages. Two had all their foliage nibbled off. In mildly alkaline soil pH = 7.2 it grew very well. In more alkaline soil pH =7.9 it did not do well.
Dianthus Devon Cottage™ Ruby's Tuesday
Have
I adore the smell of pinks and simply cannot get enough of them. They tolerate a fair amount of drought, frost, and general abuse, but I do sometimes wish they survived longer. Having better luck with them in pots where they drain better, get better attention and are out of reach of hungry gophers.
Foxglove (Digitalis 'Dalmatian Purple')
Have
Smallish plants, 9 each, planted in upper fenced garden, mostly near quadrangle. (Gilbert Wild) By the second week in June most are in blossom and looking very good. This is a plant that must get more reps in the garden, even if it does not grow to huge proportions. By late July, still doing well, though they should have been staked.
Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea 'Candy Mountain')
Have
Planted to deter the progress of pocket gophers, spring 2017. (White Flower Farm.) I have been watering them almost daily and they are growing well. Larger than the dalmatian foxgloves when they start to bloom. By August, three of six are evidently dead from lack of bright light.
Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea 'Dalmatian Peach')
Have
Totally horrible. Arrived weak and chlorotic. Stayed that way. Died quickly. Aaargh.
Coneflower (Echinacea Sombrero® Lemon Yellow)
Prev
Driveway bed near AZ cypress, spring 2017. (High Country Gardens) Never got started
Blue Wheat Grass (Elymus magellanicus)
Have
Listed at Annies as Agropyron magellanicum. Planted 2017 in the stream shoulder area near Julia Child and Morning is Broken roses. By June it looks like it is settling in, possibly making a bit of new growth.
