I agree about the saxifrage. I love this plant. I first discovered it out in the wild growing on the rocks. I started a mix from seed and have planted them all over the place. I don't have a rock garden, but they'd be perfect for that.

My apologies Smitty, I thought she was too speckled to be Shirley and not pink enough. My Shirleys and Meagans had to be destroyed. They had some kind of virus I believe and had dwindled down to just a few inches tall. :(

no hard feelings Lyn...sorry you lost your Shirley and Meagans( must google that one)

sometimes the photos do not come true to color as we well know and location will play a part in it too.

Puff10...who needs a gardening mag when I can look at your sitting deck!!!!

Northpine...you already know how I feel about your gardens.... L-O-V-E-L-Y!

Clyde212...my Strawberry Candy isn't as profuse as yours (probably needs more sun). I'm a huge fan of Stout Medal Winners here too.

CC, now that is what a May Night Salvia should look like, not the sorry excuse for one that is growing in my garden. Yours is an example of why it was named 1997 perennial of the year. Time for mine to be removed...
Your smoke tree and sunflower are magnificent as well.

Enjoying the saxifrage as it is one of my favourite rock garden plants.

Seeing many S ingredients to savor!
Thanks so much Scrap......you are too kind!
I am also in awe of that clump of salvia. Wow!
Puff, I love that view from the deck. I see many beautiful hosta down there. Is that a clump of Sum and Substance?
Reen, your selections all look so natural in their settings, especially the snapdragons among the rocks. I have Snow in Summer, but have never managed such a nice picture of it.
