Demonstration beds blooming

13 Nov

The two demonstration beds at the Titan Garden are really showing off now that the plants have had time to settle in and establish their roots.  The miscanthus grass in the center has sent out its beautiful fronds which will remain until it is trimmed back at the end of winter.  Our chili pequin is busy decorating itself for the holidays by turning it’s little peppers red, like little Christmas lights. 

Another plant putting on a show right now is the Lion’s Tail.  This drought tolerant perennial is very attractive to bees and butterflies.  It’s fuzzy, orange tubular flowers grow in whorls up the stem and you can’t help but let it catch your eye.
