Planting Day

Nothing to report really - just making notes for later. I interrupted Eddie's weeding day for planting, please disregard any weeds you see in the photos.

Polygonum capitatum - aka Pink Buttons, Magic Carpet, Pink Smartweed.
along walkway from C to Storage area

Area C - along wall
Confederate Jasmine, unknown Althea (from my house), Geum 'Mrs. Bradshaw'

close-up: Geum quellyon 'Mrs. Bradshaw' aka Geum, Avens
Sun to part shade, likes moist conditions.
This planting is close to the water faucet.

Texas Mountain laurel (Sophora secundiflora) planted in poor soil of mostly rock and construction debris should drain well. Trying to simulate the soil rocky soils of the Texas Hill Country where these mountain laurel thrive best. (Parking area close to D)

An other hill of construction debris trouble (E) has been planted with:

Datura - hoping this is the fragrant white

Eryngium zabelii 'Big Blue' Sea Holly

Red Cascade in a small hanging basket.

Several caster bean seedlings planted.

Note to self: I need to get rid of this elm "bush".

Caster bean seedlings planted on neighbors side of street parking.

I have a bit of a guard rail around the plants until they can be seen.

And the recent rains have carved out "the stream" nicely.

  1. I never grew caster bean, but was offered seeds at a garden club meeting. Maybe I should have tried them.
