Fall planting time is here….the days get shorter…temps. trending cooler and even a chance of rain at times.
On “Special” for your garden and Wild Kingdom! Blue-eyed grass- Sisyrinchium bellum- used in meadow gardens and perennial borders. Long spring flowering- actually in the iris family. Field sedge- Carex praegracilis- used as a lawn substitute and meadow garden. You can buy these in 2″ containers as well as 1-gallon pots. Red lemmon sage- Salvia lemmonii- plant in full sun and will flower all year with an occasional trim. Will feed hummingbird, butterflies, and bees. Desert mallows- Sphaeralcea- generally orange flowers but we have them in a wide color range. Will flower all year with an occasional trim. White sage-Salvia apiana- very drought tolerant with white foliage and white flowers on tall white flower spikes. Native American significance as well. All of our California lilacs- Ceanothus -from shorter Ceanothus ‘Yankee Pt. to the tallest Ceanothus ‘Ray Hartman’. Generally blue flowers in spring but some with white and some will flower again in fall.
