fall color


these are plants producing fall color in the yard here

jefferson bean or hyacinth bean from a friend

4 o'clock from a friend originally from new orleans

canna from moms house

autumn sage or salvia greggi


yellow belle or esperanza   is a tough plant   never water it

four nerve daisy    is another tough plant   never water it


zexmenia   is another tough plant   never water it

blackfoot daisy   another tough one     never water it

milkweed   host plant for the monarch butterfly


blue plant is plumbago
red plant is turks cap


gayfeather    another tough plant


arugula     used in salads  
bees love its flowers

mealy blue sage   grows wild in yard and pasture


beta dog 2 running through lantana    real tough plant

the common feature of all these are that they can survive
most of them with out watering them  
they survive the hot dry summers here
they are very xeriscapic plants

they provide color to the yard when most plants are wilting
in the late summer early fall
most also provide seeds for birds through out  the winter
get a lot of bird activity during the winter as we provide a
good habitat for them and provide a water pond for them
