Amazing! We got wonderful rain last night and an overcast sky today, preventing the sun from drying it all up. Remember how you hated a rainy day when you were a kid? Not anymore!

I am posting the rest of the pictures I took of some really good- looking plants in June. If I wait too long I'll probably forget how to post!


Thumbs Up and Clovelly


Summer Breeze


Lakeside Sparkle Plenty


Rainforest Sunrise


Heart and Soul (this one has almost doubled since beginning of June)


Goodness Gracious


Fire Island


Allegan Fog


My Husband's Favorite Huhcera

Goodness Gracious is mislabeled. Looks more like Mango Tango to me. What do you think?


RE: The R Word and Pictures

Hi Paula,
That is Dark Star. It was sold to me as something else as a youngster, but as it matured it began to look just like the Dark Star in my Star Trek garden. So now I have two.

If you don't have it, I definitely recommend it. Very hardy, good grower and beautiful.


RE: The R Word and Pictures

i agree Babka.....looks like mango tango to me as well

RE: The R Word and Pictures

Yup, GG looks like Mango Tango. All look nice though!


RE: The R Word and Pictures

Very nice,Chris! Thanks for sharing. Phil

RE: The R Word and Pictures

Beautiful specimens, could you share a couple of garden shots.


RE: The R Word and Pictures

Babka and others,

Yes, it is Mango Tango. I must have been really tired when I posted these not to have noticed. Now where did I put that picture of GG......
