I’m in the mood to post photos of the plants that are doing the best in my garden right now, starting with these sun-tolerant Coleuses (with one ‘Rubrum’ Pennisetum  in the mix). They were stars in these pots last year, so I’m sticking with them.

‘Husker Red’ Penstemon, ‘Frosted Violet’ Heuchera, Sedum takesimense and Echinacea purpurea are all blooming now.

I like my Black-eyed Susans massed, and they’re very accommodating.

‘Little Joe’ Eupatoriums are the most robust of all the plants I’m trying in a new pollinator garden.

ALL my visitors comment on this plant – ‘Blazin” Iresine. Who needs blooms with foliage like this?  I’ve cut them back about two feet.

And you’ve already seen my ferns.

So what are YOUR best plants in July?
