A cute little Bachelor Button.
His Pineapple Sage buddy is SO bright.
Salvia elegans 'Golden Delicious.'
I keep repeating myself, but both of the Pineapple Sage's are such great plants.
This one maxes out at about two feet, so if you don't have the space for the giant one, this is your guy.
The hummingbirds will sing your praises, as it starts blooming when everything else is winding down.
Speaking of giant plants, I moved my Dahlia 'Otto's Thrill' down here from the backyard.
This sucker gets so dang tall, and I just didn't love where it has been the last couple years.
So we'll try him out in a new spot.
I moved a piece of this Peony down here last year, and his buds are starting to show color.
My 'Hot Lips' Salvia seems to have morphed into 'Lipstick.' There's not a sign of white on the flowers at all, which really doesn't hurt my feelings, since I'm not a huge variegated flower fan.
His variegated Iris friend has buds, as well as the Allium.
And last, over in the little strip, on the other side of the driveway, Salvia 'Crystal Blue' is blooming.
I think he's thanking me for the pile of compost.
I'll head up into the yard for tomorrow's post.
