Zahara Zinnia is my plant of choice for the south side of my house. They love the heat.
My roses have been attacked again this year even though I used the new Bayer Systemic advertised to combat Japanese Beetles.
Redhead Coleus is planted in my smaller turquoise containers, too small for this large of a plant. These are the containers that I had to water three times a day in the heat!
Indian Summer Coleus can withstand high heat without wilting.
Chicago Rosy in the background
Cherry Cheeks in the back garden side border. It is a mid-season to late season bloomer.
Early to mid-season still blooming at the end of July!
This is a mid-season daylily that has just begun to bloom in the raised bed on the south side.
I purchased this at Home Depot last year mainly because of the name. Entrapment is a mid-season bloomer. It is a shorter daylily and I will have to move it in the fall because it is behind Eileen Clymer and blooms after but is hidden by the long blooming Eileen.
It is more of a yellow tinged white and grows in my raised bed vegetable garden mid-season. The nice thing about it is that the day old flowers are hardly noticeable as mushies.
Very strong scapes on this mid to late season bloomer, tinged with peach.
Rain spattered Mauna Loa early to mid-season (big storm again today) in the front garden.
Supposedly one of the best whites mid-season but has never been a real strong grower for me.
One of the best pinks mid-season but has been in two years and this is the first year with blooms and very few!
Daylilies love the heat, still need some water, but are great performers!
