While visiting the Florida Flower trials in Orlando we enjoyed the many gardens at the Extension office: Formal, vegetable, pollinator, wet/rain, dry, and native.
Agapanthus, Blue Lily of the Nile. Right on time for a summer bloomer.
In the pollinator garden, homes for insects.
Old-fashioned Balsam, the grand daddy of today’s impatiens.
Florida native Butterfly Weed, Asclepias.
Prickly critter: Rattlesnake Master, Erygium.
Big, bold pot surrounded by tricolor Asian Jasmine ‘Sunset’.
Black Eyed Susan, Rudbeckia hirta.
Blanket flower, Gaillardia.
Maximum vegetables, minimum space. Swiss chard and leaf lettuce tower.
White Milkweed, Asclepias perennis.
