So, I’ve got this freakishly tall balloon flower plant…It blooms relatively late, and I actually had to stake it to keep it upright. But here you go, a four foot tall balloon flower:

Hardiness Zone: 5
Although on a very small plot of land (only 1/8 acre!), we've crammed as many different species into what we've got. We have four main beds: bulb, winged-critter bringer, culinary herbs/grasses/exotics, and a spillover bed.
We've also planted four trees in our yard: a redbud, sargent crab, semi-dwarf red delicious, and a maple (memorial). In addition, we've got several flowering shrubs growing, including an heirloom burning bush, potentilla, and a lilac that grew from a tiny stick 4 seasons ago to bloom the first time this year.
I'm looking forward to sharing gardening experiences and tips for a chemical-free garden!

I finally found my camera and am able to post a few pics of my candylilies. These are yet another gift from my Mom’s gardens, and she calls ‘em raspberry lilies. This first pic shows the outstanding iris-blade style foliage. T...
Three seasons ago, I planted a half dozen bare root hollyhocks, which grew like gangbusters, and bloomed beautiful red, pink and fruit punch colored flowers. The year after, the resultant plants were crippled by bugs and what looked like a rust, ...
