Not Roses – other views of the garden

When I first started taming the weeds on my new property in 1984, I planted a bit of this and a bit of that. It didn’t take too many years to discover that roses outperformed everything else I tried. Well, you do what works so roses became my passion. You can get a pretty good idea of my obsession with roses here.

But life is not All About Roses.

Here are a few recent Not Roses from my garden.

Gaura lindheimeri

Buddleia x weyeriana ‘Honeycomb’ – Butterfly Bush

Alcea rosea – Hollyhock

Santolina chamaecyparissus – Grey Santolina

Kniphofia uvaria – Torch Lily

Ailanthus altissima – Tree of Heaven.
Or hell, considering how aggressively it reseeds

Rocks, Spruce Cone, and rose petals

    Thanks Susan! Might post just a few roses to this blog, but want to avoid a deluge.
