    I can change that . Come over and I'll put a shovel in your hand and haul 40 pound bags of mulch . It will keep you fit and trim ... Like me .

    Looks great plugger. It's nuts how fast lantana, plumbagos, and knockout roses grow. I have plumbagos in my backyard currently. I'm about to do a major demo and remodel of the landscaping back there. My wife asked if I was going to try and save them, and I just laughed. It's crazy your daylillies are still blooming. We really did have a long Winter.

    Thank you ! Plumbago is a winner . Comes back every year and I love the blue flowers. Did you notice the long row of YELLOW shrimp plants ? They don't freeze . They stay in bloom year round . They are unusual . I've never seen them any where else. I got them at a nursery in the heights . The red salvia comes back every year . All three don't have disease or bug problems .

    I did not notice them. I've seen them in reds/oranges at various nurseries, but never that yellow. I like them a lot and have considered including them in my landscape, but I just don't have a good spot for them. I'm still in my first house, so my yard isn't as large as your's. Salvia are fantastic, especially for natural insect repellent. I made a planter for my father in law and put the red and blue (purple) salvias in there with some white vincas. He likes the patriotic theme. I'll have to snap a few pics of my front yard. I did all of the work myself including the stacked stone I used as a border. I also just installed some up-lighting about an hour ago. Demo on my backyard starts next week. I am definitely NOT doing that stacked natural stone again. It looks great, but takes forever to get just right.
