Picture Thread to go with the Swap Thread!
Here are pictures of the things I just posted on the swap thread that Ill be bringing to the swap. If anyone else has pics of any of the things youÂll be bringing, please come add them. IÂll post more pics later when IÂm sure what else IÂll have.
8 Â Geranium dalmaticum ÂCompact RoseÂ, Dwarf Cranesbill Â 6" X 12" Â Part shade to sun Â light pink Â Jun-Jul Â z4
Bronzy-red fall foliage (dependant on weather)
5 Â Anemone sylvestris, Snowdrop anemone Â 12 X 24 Â Shade to sun Â white Â May-Jun Â z4
Wonderful long lasting cutflowers. Spreads by underground runners, but near the surface, so easy to control. Also reseeds if not deadheaded promptly.
1 Â Alcea rosea - mixed colors, single hollyhock Â 60" X 24" Â Full sun Â mixed Â Jun-Sep Â z4
This is technically a biennial, but mine always develop new plants at the base that bloom the next year. Also reseed very easily. (A couple second year seedlings I put in a cup!)
1 Â Coreopsis auriculata ÂNanaÂ, Dwarf Coreopsis Â 10" X 12" Â Sun Â yellow-orange Â May-Jun Â z3
Spring blooming coreopsis, will continue to bloom into mid-summer with regular deadheading.
8 Â Sedum pachyclados Â 4" X 12"+ Â Full sun Â white Â July Â z4
Evergreen, xeric, if stems get too bare looking, cut all the way down and wait for new growth.
6 Â Sedum spurium ÂTricolorÂ Â 4" X12"+ Â Full sun Â pink Â Jun-Jul Â z4
Evergreen, xeric, remove any new growth that has reverted back to plain green.
Pink, white and green in summer, mostly pink in winter.
4 Â Sedum reflexum ÂBlue SpruceÂ Â 5" X 12"+ Â Full sun Â yellow Â July Â z3
(ÂBlue SpruceÂ is top, left)
5 Â Sedum ÂAngelinaÂ Â 5" X 10"+ Â Full sun Â yellow Â Jun-Jul Â z3
Evergreen, xeric, patented, drapes nicely in a full sun hanging basket, over rocks, or over a wall
