Posts Tagged ‘Echinacea ‘Green Envy’’

I continue to review of Klipsan Beach Cottages gardens.  I do have the most photos from this garden because I had them already uploaded to the KBC Facebook page.  The plant assortments reflects many of the favourites that we also had planted in other gardens.

We dug out some old Tradescantia along the fenced garden path because it always looked tatty.

I always had a terrible time remembering the name of Agapanthus until I associated it with “It’s a mystery; Agatha Christie!”

I don’t know the names of most of the lilies because they came from divisions from my mother’s old garden.

Sometimes I photograph the same plants each week to show how long they are in bloom.

Strobilanthus atropurpureus

Strobilanthes atropurpureus

For some reason I also had a terrible time remembering the name Strobilanthes until I associated with being showy and blooming late = strobe light!  It is perfectly hardy here and blooms in late summer with curved and frilled blue and white tubes.
