About 9'. But it is out of scale with this garden. Where I grew it before, it didn't get that tall.

"Hah Wah Ya" is certainly pretty!
The name just a little strange !

Kitties always have to check out what is going on under cover and where it is cool

Rob, I haven't seen one of those in a long while.
I use to see them quite frequently in Louisiana growing up.I found them quite interesting to watch.
Hope he/she got their morning prayers out of the way , and now has a good appetite Green Grin!

Ev, my Purple People Eater was also one of the last to continue to bloom. That honor (last) will probably belong to Silk Road, however, which has bloomed and bloomed most of the season.

Once again, my last one to bloom this year was Enough is Enough. Again with the iris humor... Glare

Poor thing tried to bloom on a 100+ degree day.
Thumb of 2020-06-11/UndertheSun/dde80d

I have a shady side of the house where I grow rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, ferns and Japanese maples. I have lost several of them over the past 5-6 years. At one point I had around 30+ different camellias, 50+ different rhododendrons and numerous azaleas. The critters, drought, high heat and flooding have really hurt that garden. The deer alone have wiped out most of my camellias, I only have a few left. It's getting tough to enjoy my garden here. Sighing!
