- The Salvia Reptans had to go. The flowers were too small to justify the weedy look. I replaced them with Caryopteris 'Longwood Blue' and 'Dark Knight'.
- The Salvia Leucantha got huge and floppy, and kind of dominated the bed.

You can see 'The Fairy' rose starting to take off just behind the Lamb's Ear, some of my new plantings this season in my newly expanded bed. The Salvia Caradonna next to it is also new.
Marie Daley rose is taking hold, along with a new Artemesia.
My Knockout roses are doing their thing - I've completely ignored them and intend to keep on keeping on. I planted a few Canna Wyoming (dark foliage and orange blooms), we'll see how they do in this spot. The Salvia May Night are sure happy!

The grass was dead anyway, so I decided to obscure that fact by creating a new bed and expanding an existing bed.
Okay that's not completely true, I just wanted to buy more plants.
In the new bed I planted:
- Salvia Leucantha (Mexican Bush Sage)
- Catmint 'Select Blue'
- Bicolor Iris
- Kentucky Colonel Mint
- Meir Y Teran rose
- Daylilies (transplanted from right back bed)
- Canna Pink Futurity
- Salvia reptans
- Veronica Speedwell 'Blue Charm'
- Buddleia 'Ellen's Blue'
But I DID get smart and install an irrigation system! (Slow but not stupid, mom always said.)
