Wednesday's Story

My gardens…

Have been quite ignored this year, but fortunately for me, my gardens are planted with perennials. This means they come back year after year, unlike annuals. That doesn’t mean, though, that every plant from the previous summer will make it through the winter. But once again, fortunately for me, this bloom has continued in my garden for many years. It’s a joyful pop of orange along my garden’s border. It always catches my attention and finally caught the focus of my lens.

points of interest

Bright, saucer-shaped, single, orange blooms with yellow anthers float above dense rosettes of foliage on wiry, dark stems. Leaves are pinnate and softly hairy. Blooms from late spring through summer. Wonderful plant for front of the border, attracting beneficial insects.

general care

Grow in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Cut back foliage after blooming to encourage new growth.
