ya, great colors, wow
I'm a wicked sucker for Daisies. What kind are those two? That bright melony/pinky one is to die for!
Meg, they're just plain old gerbera daisies.
I usually try to plant something new every year but unfortunately didn't do it this year.
Those daisies are what I planted last year.
But I did buy a couple of geraniums, which are still in the pot!
I have a couple of Easter lilies and a couple of orange lilies but don't know what kind they are.
Also got a few canna lilies (I think).
I got a big camelia or sesanqua (sp ?) not sure which, but it is loaded with buds right now.
I think it's actually a camelia since it usually blooms in very early spring but all those early buds are making me think twice about what it is.
And I have 8 gardenias on one end of the house...........LOVE that scent!
HHHMMMMMM! I bet your house smells so good!! Gardenias are my favorite smelly flower! I love the scent and just the way they look. You are so lucky. Aren't Gardenias kinda fussy? I love the daisy's too, very pretty! Trudy
Aren't Gardenias kinda fussy?
Trudy, I have no idea!
I have 8 on the North end of my house, the soil really isn't that good. We planted them about 10 years ago, the soil was basically red clay and I mixed in some Miracle Grow potting soil when we planted them.
I have to cut them back every year because they shadow each other out, I'm getting rid of 4 of them, taking out every other one so the ones staying can grow.
Okay If I lived closer I would be over there just smelling your gardenias! Guess I am going to try that next year and put mine on the North end of our house too and see what happens! Thanks Tammy!
Do you have problems with WHITE FLIES on yours?
They are terrible here, will get on the underside of the leaf and that leaves a black sooty residue on the top side of the leaf, and it doesn't just wash off either, it sticks to the leaf and you basically have to scratch it off.
I have to spray for them 2 or 3 times a year.
I'll get some gardenia pics tomorrow.
