New additions

 Meet our new additions from the spring native plant sale at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center:

Alamo vine (Merremia dissecta)
Downy phlox (Phlox pilosa)
Golden dalea (2) (Dalea aurea)
Gray globemallow (Sphaeralcea incana)
Low menodora (redbud) (Menodora heterophylla)
Pitcher sage (Salvia azurea)
Prairie flax (Linum lewisii)
Purple salvia (Salvia greggi)
Sawtooth sunflower (Helianthus grosserrantus)
White avens (2) (Geum canadense)
White butterfly gaura (Gaura lindheimeri)


Plus this "six pack" of assorted native wildflowers...

I bought two more white avens and two more golden daleas to supplement two of each that we already have (and are flourishing). The Alamo vine is to replace one that didn't come back last year. We're going to try gaura yet again, and I really wanted an orange-colored globemallow (our Blanco County native Sphaeralcea angustifolia has pink flowers). But the gray globemallow will be beautiful, too.

You showed remarkable restraint, all things considered! The orange (or gray) globemallows are doing so well in the Austin area this year. I'm betting the last three people who don't have one yet (including myownself) are going to relent and put them in this season after seeing those pumpkin colored blooms waving above the silvery foliage. Just gorgeous - can't wait to see yours in place!
