I don’t think I said it already, but this is the first time I’ve planted Pentas. They have bloomed continuously all summer, and the bees love it. Pentas will be a staple in my garden from now on.

Nice to hear!

Not familiar with those but they sure do sound wonderful.

Plumbago doing amazing for the first year…lots of blooms and even trim them back some a week ago and they’re growing strong again. Cannot recommend this plant enough.

Summer time is at its peak and I hope you’re perennials are doing extremely well.

Many have been asking me what is the secret to get such luscious beautiful flowering perennials throughout the summer. Besides the usual watering and fertilizing as needed, I commented about this in another thread for butterfly bushes but this is true for any type of flowering perennials I realize some people only track specific threads so I wanted to make sure it was available to everybody.

If you’re having any kind of problem with your butterfly bushes or your crêpe myrtles or your rosebushes or anything of the sort last thing you want to do is wait until you identify a problem. Generally if you had a problem with any of these in the past they might continue to be a problem in the future and therefore it is much better to take a proactive instead of reactive approach.

Here are my key TOP PICK products which I highly recommend if you’ve had any problems in the past to start to spray after you have leaves emerging in the spring, rotating periodic basis every 2 to 3 weeks

Tropical salvia, starry rosinweed and other native perennial plants are attracting butterflies, bumblebees and a gazillion dragonflies. I plant more native plants than non-natives for the pollinators.

I don't plant. I don't garden. I had a 'weed' take root in June and I didn't get around to pulling it fast enough. It got too big and I had no garden tools to uproot it. Garden tools are on my list. Meanwhile, my 'weed' has started to FLOWER! Oh my! Google Lens says it is an allamanda schottii bush. Says it could get quite large. But I think I am going to keep it, anyway. They say you can hack it down to it's root before Spring to keep it manageable. So this 'volunteer' is my 1st plant! I am so proud...
