You wouldn't know it by the weather, but summer has arrived at Longview Ranch.
A volunteer Eschscholzia californica.
Rosa 'Perle d'Or'.
Euphorbia tirucalli 'Sticks on Fire'.
Agastache 'Acapulco Orange'.
Kniphofia 'Timothy'. I planted the rhizomes in fall of 2010 and they snoozed through last summer. Now that the blooms have put in an appearance, they were worth waiting for.
Acer palmatum seedling rescue.
Phygelius x rectus 'Passionate'.
Potentilla fruticosa 'Sunset Red'.
Clivia miniata 'Belgian Hybrid Orange' (yes, it really is that intense.)
Even the dying leaves of the Eucalyptus are a beautiful bronzy-orange.
