Hot Summer Bloomers

To fill empty spaces left by spring bloomers that have finished, Madagascar periwinkle (Catharanthus rosea) and Melampodium literally come up blooming. I saw a blossom of each, yesterday, on tiny plants less than 6 inches tall.

  1. That does look really pretty. I'm looking for just this type of plant for a space in my front border.
    Your pictures of your gardens are always beautiful!

  2. I love your garden beds, I know how hard you work to make them look so natural :)


I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
