End of Month View, the Last Round before Frost

We don't have frost predicted but a low of 34º Saturday night is close enough. Here's some of the best of what's left, on today's rounds.

Brugmansia, a Last Look

Gulf Muhly, two different beds, early morning above, late afternoon below. You have to catch the sun behind it or there's nothing to see.

Salvia leucantha frames a Butterfly Ginger.

There's still plenty of Lantana montevidensis, both Lavender and white. Frost will hardly faze it until there's a hard freeze. I tend to pull things like Melampodium when it looks weary rather than see it blackened by a freeze. 

Meems of Hoe and Shovel posted on Facebook about Gulf Muhly and asked if we grow it successfully and under what conditions. I'll make another Gulf Muhly post and a grass post soon. Dee of Red Dirt Ramblings has a new post on Tropical Plants in the Garden and is interested in what we plant and how things go -- I have some tropicals that she plants and many that she didn't list. That's another post to make, you too?

  1. You do very well with tropicals Jean. My pink muhly grass is in bloom right now and is a favorite of mine.

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