The Perennial Garden

Welcome!  Please take a stroll with me through my perennial garden which has finally grown to be blog worthy.

The blooms on this hibiscus planted last year are plate sized.

Another view of the same hibiscus bush.  In the background you can catch a glimpse of a different colored hibiscus along with some day lilies and knock out roses.

A close up view of the bloom and  many more buds waiting in the wings to bloom.

This is the hibiscus bush I planted  this spring.    The color is absolutely luscious and really pops in the garden!  I plan to add  a new hibiscus each year since they seem to thrive in spite  of my lack of a green thumb.

The agapanthus are thriving also.

Surprise!   I thought I bought all blue ones and a white one popped up this year.

Love that quote.   Thanks for visiting today.

Your roses and other flowers are beautiful, but your hibiscus are amazing. I have seeds for hibiscus but didn't get to plant them for this year. I hope mine will be as gorgeous as yours.
