This lovely is called Firewheel (Gaillardia pulchella). This plant is a native of North America and can easily be started from seed. Firewheel is not too picky about heat or lack of water.
Julia Child rose is just the best! It has bloomed for me all winter. The foliage looks great and it is never begging for any special treatment.
Here we have one of the native Louisiana Irises. It just began to flower today. It is called Copper Iris (Iris fulva). This iris blooms each spring in my garden.
This is an old China rose called Mutabilis. I only recently planted this rose and it has already started blooming. I love it!
Mexican Bush Sage (Salvia leucantha) is very drought tolerant. Its’ silver foliage looks great and the purple flowers are enjoyed by bees and butterflies.
The Ducher rose is just a spectacular rose. It has been in bloom all winter in my garden. I love the color and shape of the flowers.
Souvenir De St. Anne is a wonderful rose. It has also been in flower all winter. It smells divine!
The Fairy has only recently started to bloom. The soft pink color goes so well with other plants.
I began this post with a native flower and I’m also ending this post with a native. Pink evening primrose (Oenothera speciosa) can range in color from a dark pink to white. This plant just began blooming today in my garden.
