This Summer's Best Performing Plants

Each summer I take note of the plants that look incredible given that year's weather conditions. This year in central Wisconsin we experienced the coolest June on record and the second coolest July. Tonight, north of Hwy. 8 the NWS has made note of possible light frost. Frost? In August? Yes. Cool. NOT cool. Lots of rain...

So here's my list of the best for 2009:

Daisy- Leucanthemum 'Becky'

Turtlehead lyonii

Helianthus 'Gold Doubloon'

Calamintha 'White Cloud'

Clematis herclifolia 'China Purple'

Lady's Mantle

Geranium 'Jolly Bee'

Phlox carolina 'Miss Linguard'
