I am in the garden today trying to catch up on my weeding/clean up effort (seems like a loosing battle). Here is my list of "total goners".

Fancy Dress

Edith Wolford
Crooked Little Smile

Thumb of 2015-06-12/Misawa77/a64cb0

I have also lost ten others, but I still have some of them left. I am working a bed that has a lot of borer issues, but this problem seems to be limited to just this bed.

The labels are Avery # 5523.

They are for out doors and very expensive; like $45 a package. But in the end, they are doing a lot better than the old method of perement sharpie marker on old stripes of cut up blinds.

I have Edith Wolford in a second spot! Who knew????

Thanks Tom; please add them to my "list". lol

Braggadocio to the goners list.

I am getting lots of afternoon thunder showers (with heavy down pour pockets) and will be in this pattern for some time. I am way behind in getting rid of the spent bloom stalks and fear rot issues. Got another bed cleared, but lost another 10 or so rhizomes.
