I really like your pink lilac Marcia and your siberian iris is lovely too. I am having the best siberian iris year, I guess they have loved our temps and moisture this year.

Mmmm, that verbascum is pretty, but i'm not even tempted! LOL I'm still digging out seedlings!

I started some dahlia tubers and they've really done nothing since i planted them. :-/

The Copper Rose verbascum wa suppose to be an annual verbascum but the plants have made it several years now. So far I havent had any problem with them reseeding themselves. I do have them in an area that they are confined in. That is my only blooming dahlia. I have buds on another one but they are slow this year.

Yes, that Persicaria definitely has the "wow" factor doesn't it?!!

Great pictures of the Siberians too! I didn't have any blooms from mine this year, so next year will be spectacular...right?? Got my fingers crossed anyway.lol

The extreme dahlia is really cute, Jean. How big is the flower?

I just talked my sister into buying a persicaria. She has a huge yard. Do you have any suggestions for her as far as what it needs to be at its best? The label said zone 4, but I'm hoping that's wrong.

I had a persicaria when I lived out of town, so that would be a zone 2b or 2a depending on which map you look at.;) It was on the west side of a shed and was doing very well for only being in it's second year. Marcia's is much bigger and showier so she's obviously doing something right there!
Yeah I think I remember the label saying zone 4 when I bought it too...good thing it couldn't read.

Hmmm, to tell you the truth, i'm not sure where mine came from - that was a few years ago, you know! LOL It's in a bed that faces east and gets sun most of the day, but the backside of it is really shaded. I don't give it any special attention or do anything out of the ordinary, so i can't help you there!

Laurie the blooms on that dahlia are only 4-5 inches across.

I'm loving the different Verbascums (that aren't V. nigrum like I have). Are they also a large plant, and are they also horribly seedy? I like everything about mine except how seedy it is.
