These hard-working plants are still going strong, no end to their performance in sight yet. Portulaca umbraticola, Salvia, Euphorbia 'Diamond Frost.'

Wonderful show Dave. Your lilies reminded to to post this one I saw at the Flower Bridge in Lake Lure, NC. I had never seen one like this.

Yes it is. It came in a package of mixed dahlia bulbs that my wife picked up at Walmart. No ID of course.

It is very very pretty! It seems like Dahlias are a little trickier than I initially though. They are truly something of beauty. I had my first two last year (Duet and Firebird) and Duet came back this year (Firebird was in a pot and also a cactus variety, so it may have been too cold). It's doing much better than last year and I got one heck of a photo last year Thumbs up

Here's where we are so far - we're blooming later this year by a couple weeks but based on the healthy-looking bud, I'd say we don't have much longer to go before this beauty pops open!

Beautiful! I have not seen any of mine in years, they are a deer delicacy and nothing I tried to repel the deer has worked on the Formosa lilies.

But mostly, the color in my yard is from foliage. Didn't manage to capture any in this pic this morning, but generally, the purple heart/queen (Tradescantia pallida) and Coleus are blooming throughout the landscape, to the delight of bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.

So embarrassing *Blush*
I sprayed Monday and must have done a good job because I could find none blooming and none that still looked healthy. But if you want some I will for sure keep you in mind, because I do not care for it in the lawn. I am sure it will return. I do have Vinca if you would like some of that, Red, White, and Purple I think.

TYVM! :+) I find plenty of Portulaca amilis in the lawn, but it refuses to grow on the other side of a border in a flower bed. LOL!
