For those of you who asked about my lack of photo posts, I've been out of town this past week. Last week, the thrips had most of my established blooms under siege. Now, without watering during this week's heat wave, the foliage is browning and looking ratty. Also several of my plants are not putting up scapes this year. Others are very, very late this year.
Here's SPACECOAST FRANCIS BUSBY, new to my garden this spring. There are not many buds because it's new and hasn't settled in. The first scape bloomed at the end of May when it was still cool, so I can't give you a report about sunfastness. I do like the gold edge with the intense orangey red.
