'G' Photos

Geranium, 'Brookside', one of the longest blooming perennial Geraniums I have. It has tall stems that somewhat flop after heavy rains, then peak up from between surrounding plants. The centers start sending up a new mound of growth, quickly hiding the bare spot left from the original flopping stems:

Geum, 'Blazing Sunset'. This flower is only 1" in diameter. I had to move it away from Jupiter's Beard, because the colors clashed something awful! It's a vigorous, long blooming plant:

Please share your "G" Photos!

Margo,

Yes, I have several 'Gold Standard' Hostas around my yard. I especially like them in the Fall when their centers REALLY turn gold.

Your 'Gypsy Rose' Hosta reminds me of my 'Strip Tease' Hosta. Maybe they're related?

Yes, 'Gypsy Rose' is a sport of 'Striptease'. The difference between them is that "Gypsy Rose' is smaller and the center is yellow.
