Have you ever tried growing Cleomes ?
There are many good reasons to give them a try.
The flowers are quite showy, as they grow through-out the summer,
to 8" size balls of blossoms.
They seem to be quite at home with shrubs and perennials.
And, the best news is......
Humming Birds love them.

Another flower that does well in my Texas Flower Garden, is the verbena.
With purple being one of my favorite colors, I always include several of these plants.
What I like about them is their ability to grow,
trailing and intertwining, in the nearby plants.
Blue Daze is another plant
that looks so nice grown near Artemisia.
Even though my purple salvia has taken a beating from the recent hard rains,
you can see how beautiful it is mixed with the gray-green color of Artemisia.
If you enjoyed my Garden Path post today,
look for updates next Wednesday....
"Give me odorous at sunrise
a garden of beautiful flowers
where I can walk undisturbed."
