Mountain Pinks and Blooming Natives
The Mountain Pinks are really putting on a show this year. and I included a few natives that are blooming in my yard for the first time. I would like to try to establish them on a slope on my land. I have not been successful before. SO if you have some hidden knowledge about these beauties. I would like to hear how you are doing it.. What I know is that they need full throttle sun on a slope of disturbed limestone rubble and caliche that water will flow across when it rains. I sent seeds to TexasRanger and she gets blooms every spring. She can get anything to grow..
Here, below, is a Menodora heterophylla (2 yellow spots) and a Dalea purpuria amongst my mexican wire grass. It is the first bloom of the Redbud Menodora. I am hoping for more. It has been long in coming. I thought I had lost it but it has taken off this year. I think they are slow to establish.
