The flower stalk is about twelve feet tall (~4 M). Oh, my.
I considered removing Aloe camperi last summer. It must have read my thoughts--it decided to show off. Okay, you are safe.Tomato seedlings just appearing. Our five straight days of near or over 90F helped them sprout.
Remember the "it" plants of 2014? That seems like a million years ago. Alstroemeria 'Rock and Roll, Digiplexis 'Illumination Flame', Stachys 'Bello Grigio' were the three I remember. The first two were for sale everywhere, the third was coveted but not so widely available.
I bought all three. The Alstroemeria is thriving and blooming like crazy. Yet another plant popular with the hummers.
I pulled out the mealy-bug covered, bare-stemmed Digiplexis 'Illumination Flame', and the Stachys very abruptly died during one of our brutal heat waves last August. One out of three is not bad as new plant introductions go. I have not seen the Alstroemeria for sale this spring. The Digiplexis is here and there in garden centers, ignored and forgotten.
The Stachys I wanted to try again. One was almost free due to getting 3rd place at the Roger's Sweet Pea show--the prize was a gift card. The other was 50% off. Perhaps with two they won't be lonely and die. Update: they died in the first heat wave
The washing machine water appears to do the Hemerocallis no harm.
I celebrated World Naked Gardening Day in my own way, clothes firmly in place. It's about the plants. It's all about the plants.
