Today I am pleased to be able to share three plants which have just recently come into bloom in my garden. Each of them is contributing a new color to enjoy.
Gladioli are not supposed to be hardy enough to overwinter here in my part of North Carolina, and yet this one has survived two winters in the ground, has multiplied, and now looks very healthy.
Several years ago I visited a daylily garden in Northern Virginia and remarked to the owner how much I liked a particular specimen. She immediately got a shovel, dug it up, and gave me ‘Obsidian.’ Great gardeners are like that; they love to share.
