At present we’re visiting with Robin Sams, who has been gardening on this property in northeastern North Carolina for 10 years.
I planted these cleomes (Cleome hassleriana, annual) and zinnias (Zinnia elegans, annual) from seed after my many daffodils completed dying again. I hope they reseed subsequent yr. (Word: To encourage annuals to self-sow, restrict the quantity of mulch you employ in areas the place you’d like them to seed till the seedlings are up and rising.)
A pal gave me this swamp sunflower (Helianthus angustifolius, Zones 5–9), a local perennial.
Native water lilies (Nymphaea odorata, Zones 4–11) and Siberian iris (Iris sibirica hybrid, Zones 3–8). I planted the water lilies myself.
Encore azaleas (Rhododendron hybrid, Encore group, Zones 7–10) blooming once more within the fall.
Winterberry (Ilex verticillata, Zones 3–9) loaded with pink berries. (Word: This native holly is deciduous, so the leaves drop off to showcase the berries much more dramatically by means of the winter.)
Mexican heather contrasts properly with tall swamp sunflowers.
The white hybrid tea rose ‘Full Sail’ and others in shades of pink.
