Summer blooms 2011

We saw a spate of cool weather days breaking up our summer heatwave. It gave us time to assess the damage from the drought and noted with interest the tough plants such as the vinca, cosmos, and marigolds that withstood the severe weather. ┬áPlus, we discover a surprise bloom from an unexpected 3-season flowering shrub–Encore azalea Autumn Monarch.
