This is one garden I am happy with this year , it is right by the back door. The cannas are putting up with the dryness and the heat and the lavender thrives on it. The geraniums are called rose star and doing well. The blue spruce standard takes only a bit of pruning each year and the little statute I picked up years ago. There is some Frosty morn sedum that should put on a good show this fall and a volunteer plant,last year I had in Tall blue ageratum , they have self seeded which surprised me but I am leaving them to see what happens.
