This dwarf Camellia Tree was positioned right in the middle of a garden bed filled with Lily of the Valley. Both were choking each other. And the dwarf tree was growing towards the sunny corner of the bed. The result was a very bent and leaning tree. She bloomed but she didn’t look happy. It was decently healthy, but not growing very much and it’s leaves were not the typical waxy healthy green color we like to see.
We dug it up and positioned it in a large terra cotta planter, so as to allow it, normal growth processes to give it new vigor. With tender loving care, nutritious new soil and fertilizer, we have revived and refreshed this darling specimen.
It’s the second summer in this large terra cotta planter and we surrounded it with the summer seasons “Periwinkle” in three colors Nice curb appeal up against this homeowners freshly painted wall. Miracles happen every day!!
Black-eyed Susan’s (Rudbeckia hirta) are common members of the Aster family, which comprises the great majority of the flowers on our nations vast prairies. But the non wildflower species are in a full blooming phase right now right here in Virginia. The genus name Rudbeckia comes from the old family name of Rudbeck, a teacher of Carl Linnaeus a famous botanist back in the 1600s. We hope their appealing faces will give you hope and joy during our current time and this very warm summer season.
We love their happy faces!!
