Who planted new things in the middle of summer
besides me LOL!
I have a general policy of not planting during summer, but I stopped in to OSH early this month and saw they had a bunch of clearance plants. I picked up three Salvia nemerosa, and three Penstemon "Apple Blossom".
The salvia may have been a mistake, we'll see, but I think the Penstemon will adapt well to my relatively dry full sun sloping front yard. I am much better at remembering to water this year as we installed some new trees and groundcover in the spring
