These flowers were from my last summer collection, but they got lost in my archive. Many stores and local nurseries are ready to display their flowers for the early pickers, and I want to be one of them.
This flower is on my list to re-grow for the summer, since I like the fact that it has continuous blooms throughout the warm months.
Although these flowers have no petals and are different from what we normally see, I like the silky look on them. They also can tolerate direct afternoon sun.
To keep these flowers healthy and blooming, I add used coffee ground as fertilizer before re-planting them in the pot, and water them either early in the morning, or late in the evening.
Are you ready to plant your flowers? After a long winter, I think I'm more than ready to get my hands in the dirt.
