Mid Summer Meltdown?

Well yes... somewhat but we have some summer flowers that can really take the heat.

Calla Lilies (Zantedeschia) are South Africans that seems unphased by sultry temperatures.

Calla 'Firedancer'
These bulbs are surprisingly easy to grow and bloom for months. One could almost follow the “Just Add Water” philosophy.

Calla 'Goldrush'
AND Coneflowers!

Our Echinacea trials are going quite swimmingly. Shown here in the morning mist, the fanciful flowers shine all day in the show garden. Pictured here are some of our favorites.
