Flowers in My Yard
#1
Took some shots of what's in my yard.

The fiance and I went to the farmer's market a couple weeks ago to pick up some flowers for our planters vegetable plants for the garden. Here are some of the planters.

Our vegetable garden and the new edging I had bought for it a month or so ago. We're growing tomatoes, green beans, wax beans, red and green bell peppers, broccoli, watermelon, cantaloupe, cucumbers, butternut squash, carrots, a few types of lettuce, and strawberries.

Flowers always add color to any yard. Call me when the mater samiches (that's tomato sandwiches if you are not from the South) are ready. 204

EB_05_NISMO,

Thank you for sharing the pictures. You have some beautiful flowers and the roses are perfect. The unknown flower looks like a Peony or Paeonia. I just bought a pink one for my yard, but it is too small to bloom this year.

Beautiful pictures. I have had the Purple Heart for a few years, but I just got the Foxglove this summer. I always love to see the flowers others enjoy. Thank you for sharing.

How big does the Purple Queen get? I like the deep red and purple plants to accent all the green plants in a flower bed.

I'm not exactly sure, the tag that came with it says 8" tall and to plant them 16" apart. The tag also states it's a trailing vine. I've read mixed reviews about the plant online. Some people say it is invasive, they can't get rid of it, and they hate it. Others like it because it doesn't take much care for it to grow.

Tradescantia pallida Purple Heart also called Purple Queen is supposed to get 18" tall and 12" wide, but I have seen it much larger than that here in the Oklahoma City area. It is a zone 8 and warmer plant, but I have it in my yard and I am in zone 7A which is the cold side of zone 7.

Mine dies back to the ground in the winter, but has been coming back for several years now. Purple Heart is in the Wandering Jew family, but I have not found it nearly as invasive. Mine does spread, but it is quite easy to pull out if it gets into an area you do not want it.

In warmer zones it might be considered invasive since it would not die back to the ground as it does here in zone 7A. I'll try to post some more pictures of my yard this week if I can get the time to post them.
