This Byzantine Emperor in a sunny bed beside the driveway was melting
along the petal edges and the color was fading by mid-afternoon.
Fleshier petals of Algarve LA lily (or is it Elodie?) held up well in all-day sun.
Flowers will not last as long in high temperatures, even with deep watering.
I try to water everything once a week, new transplants more often.
Roses want lots of water. Belinda's Dream was trialed at TAMU with no extra water for the Earthkind label. It does better with ample water, like any other rose. Edges of the petals get crispy in the heat
Vitex is blooming, here across from a white Crape Myrtle that takes
heat well. Beneficials and butterflies are flocking to the purple blooms.
Looks as if it will be a long, hot summer here.
