Becky Shasta Daisy
Hey everyone! It's the growing season and I'm back for my second year of beginner questions. Aren't you excited!
At the advice of some of you (most notably Skybird) on plants that bloom for a long time but are fairly easy to take care of, I planted some Becky Shasta Daisies, Coreopsis, dianthis, gaillardia, etc. last weekend. So far so good, except I'm a little worried about the Beckys. They are planted in an area that gets a good amount of sun and is usually very hot in the summer (close to my neighbor's wood fence). I read that they will often times do well in that sort of environment so I put them and the Gaillardia in that spot near one another. Except, the Beckys are already looking a little droopy. It was hot, of course, the past week but I thought they might have rebounded with the cooler weather the past couple days. No such luck. They don't look terrible, just sagging a bit and don't look very confident...if you know what I mean.
As you may or may not remember, I'm in Arvada in the heavy clay soil. I amended with some Clay Buster and mulched 'em up good. Any ideas? Should I stop worrying and just ride it out?
Thanks a bunch and happy gardening!
