|Salvia 'Amber's Wish'|
I also planted 4 'Lady of Shallot' roses in the back along the only fenceline that gets any sun, and one bloomed! So pretty. (I'm not sure they'll get enough sun there, crossing my fingers.)

My Fatsia 'Camouflage' survived the Winter and are getting bigger (woohoo!) so I ordered 2 more online from Plant Delights Nursery. I planted them along that same back fenceline, on the other side of the big Oak tree.
|Fatsia japonica 'Camouflage' or 'Murokamo Nishiki'|
|Canna 'Flambe', Salvia 'Amber's Wish' and Brugmansia 'Double White'. Palm in the back is Brahea armata.|
Behind it you can see the foliage of my Brugmansia 'Double White', and immediately in front of it is the Salvia 'Amber's Wish'.
As I do every year, I try to capture the beauty of my Chocolate Mimosa, but fail miserably:
- Begonia luxurians
- Rose Campion
- Salvia clevelandii (all varieties/hybrids)
- Canna 'Blueberry Sparkler'
- Iochroma 'Princess'
- Smoke tree (I found it a good home!)
- Merlot Majik mimosa
- Mexican weeping bamboo
- Peach tree (sigh, I transplanted it but didn't have enough root)
Everything has seemed slower to get moving this year (myself included). Hopefully soon things will start to fill in and I can get some decent shots to post!
