I have no idea what kind of mum this is. It is happy that is for sure. It blooms a full month earlier than the Sheffie mums from Tennessee. I think it is even a different color yellow this year. It will need to be spread around.
Giant hibiscus flowers on plants that never get more than a foot tall. What's up with that?
Good ol Joe Pye.
Another giant hibiscus flower on a tiny plant. I grew these from seed that had been sent to me. Maybe they need to be mulched and some more elbow room to reach full sized plant status. They might also need the heat I hardly ever have. My okra has stopped growing, it has been so cool of late.
August has actually been freakishly cool, rarely getting above 80 degrees high on the low spot. Normally August is our warmest month when the peppers finally start to grow. The peppers are just sitting there now after a bountiful early crop in the heat wave.
Does this early cool mean anything? Is it an omen? I'll find out in due time.
