It's taken me all weekend but I finally got this past week's pics uploaded. I should be doing something outside instead but,lol.

I've been trying to get a flattering pic of my Knautia for the longest time. Here it is spilling in front of Nolina parviflora- Bear Grass

This is a neat plant but has never bloomed as much as advertised for me. It has just started and is actually a little early compared to previous years.

Shari, Beautiful daylily, I'm always interested in the nice late bloomers.

Beautiful flowers!

Hope everyone got a good rain without damage last night. Our garden got a good soaking. We've had so much rain this year that my drought-tolerant plants are getting damaged! I've got some grey spots in lavender, had to rip out a rosemary and my baby echinops are turning to mush.

Oh, here's a link to my latest blog where I uploaded photos of a recent visit to JC Raulston Arboretum as well as photos of our visit to the open house at Plant Delights, Juniper Level Botanical Garden; and...a few close-ups of colorful produce at the Farmers' Market in Raleigh.

Blueangel,

That is a cercis canadensis 'Floating Cloud' variegated Eastern redbud; native south to Florida and Texas (as well as MA to MI to NE. It was discovered in Iva, South Carolina. The one at Raulston came from a nursery (Shadow Nursery) in Winchester, Tennessee. So, I'd say it will work in Charlotte...if you can find it.
