Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I've had an interest in rock garden plants for the past several years. Unfortunately its a challenge in my climate with sultry hot summers. I've pretty much relied on trial and error to see which plants survive our conditions. Here are a few survivors that have made it through several seasons. First is a bright floriferous dianthus hybrid Joan's Blood. Next is Potentilla neumanniana Nana. Veronica petraea Mme Mercier. Phlox subulata Betty. Last is a pulsatilla from Hokkaido which has barely survived a few years and finally cranked out a bloom this spring - P cernua.
