The year 2011 was a violent weather year in the US, with at least 12 weather-related disasters exceeding a billion dollars in damage. Some say it was Earth's most extreme weather year since 1816. Much of the country suffered from record heat and drought . . . and so did the yards and gardens.

Royal Candles is a heavy and long blooming plant in my garden. If deadheaded, it will bloom continuously from early summer to late fall. It does not seem to be prone to powdery mildew as other veronicas are.
