Larkspurs not lasting as long this year ...

roselee z8b S.W. TexasMay 6, 2011

In the places where I don't water a lot and with no rain for over three months plus all the dry wind they are falling over and looking weedy. I'm already pulling some of them out.

This photo was taken in early April ...

But I'm leaving enough to make seed in hopes for a better Spring next year. Also will try to save some for the Fall swap.

How are yours doing?

Kathy gave me some of her larkspurs, she called them bunnies. I took them to the coast, and as of yesterday were still in full bloom. Who would have thought that they would do so well down there. I cannot wait for them to make seeds, so I can have more larkspurs next year. I planted tons of seeds this year, and only the cosmos and zinna survived the heat. They all came up, but the full sun was just too much. Boy, the butterflies love the cosmos. Barbra
