    Lovely. Too bad they don't bloom for very long.

    I like to stick with flowers like snap dragons and petunias because they are bright and colorful and have a long blooming season.

    Agree.

    Casa Blanca and Formosa lilies planted in clusters can bloom all summer.

    The lilies are additions to the perennials and the annuals.

    Along with assorted grasses.

    They are beautiful but I won't invest in a flower that only blooms for a couple of weeks at most. Unfortunately, I have limited space and do most of my planting in pots (well ALL of my planting actually - lol).

    They sure are beautiful flowers while they last though.

    I've been planting them for about 5 years.

    Most return every spring.

    I add to them, looking for cross bred varieties.

    This year I may make another attempt to cross breed them myself.

    I had some hybrid petunias and some regular ones. The hybrids didn't seem to do as well as the regular ones. They faded and died off faster for some reason, so I've been sticking with the regular ones but I love the hybrid candy stripe ones, so that is a disappointment.

    Hybrid day lilies usually revert too fast
