Garden Pictures 2015

I planted a white mophead for a friend a couple years back, Fairy. Right now it looks stunning. Perfect spot....shady, moist and cool.
I prefer the paniculatas but if I can create a shady cool spot Hydrangea Annabel will be planted
Check out Kyushu though....it is a charming shrub.

Very true Lyn.
At least get your monardas in where its reasonably moist to avoid the dreaded mildew Panda. Astilbes will be good companions........

Warm, sunny day...bit breezy.
Was going to post a picture of canna in flower but no smilies or toolbar to enable.
And Canna Tropicanna Black planted earlier this year has the most massive dark purple/brown/black leaves ...clearly it has the capacity to be huge.
Woken at 4 am for emergency chauffeuring duties....niece's fall out with boy friend meant muggins here lost his beauty sleep. Then 90 minutes hearing how bad the world is......(tired, grumpy smilie).

have I killed it?

B3, its a pretty tough "grass". Invasive here too. I would be surprised if you lost it.
I would dig up a piece of it, tidy it up with a slight haircut, and pot it up. Water it well. One of the few freshly potted up plants that I would then leave in fhe sun.
