  1. Everything is lovely, but your street strip is gorgeous. Beautiful balance you've achieved there. And not normally an Ajuga person but that one is sure pretty.

  2. Okay Greggo, now I'm confused. I thought Johnson's Blue was a true geranium, not a pelargonium. Or are you being a botanical reactionary?

  3. Nope Greggo, can't identify the rose pictured; I'd say it's a modern by the glossy foliage and I'm guessing it's a Griffith Buck Rose, but not one that I grow.

  4. Your garden has exploded with growth! Love how you did your hell-strip...I'm still trying to figure out the best way to do do you deal with people opening car doors and smashing things?

  5. Your hell strip is heavenly! I love the color and foliage combinations.

  6. Did I spy a rose amongst these photo? I did, I did spy a rose..... Great work on this strip of garden space. I know your neighbors are greatful!

  7. Greggo responded to my comment; the rose is Peach Drift. Good choice Greggo...I went to a talk recently by one of Greenleaf Nursery's managers; they grew something like 350000 Drift roses for wholesale use this year. Peach Drift was his favorite.

  8. Redneck R- Yes it is a rose...Peach Drift Rose from Greenleaf Nursery. I couldn't resist. I also have a Flower Carpet Red with the same glossy foliage. And red thorns to boot! thank you PR for the comments. This doesn't mean I am going to be a rosarian. At lest not yet. : 0

  9. They are nice photos, too! I love all the colors!
