Layia platyglossa, Tidy Tips, a new California native plant I am trying this year, and intend to seed this fall to see a display of 10 or so native species next spring-

  3. Thanks, Peter. I'm getting addicted to bloghops, and the Monday ones are fun, plus I can work on them over the weekend.

    1. Yes, I had success a couple of years with growing Poached Egg plant, Limnanthes douglasii, so I got the Centennial and perennial native mixes from http://www.theodorepayne.org that I am going to fall sow and see how they do here. I sowed a sampling of the annual seed this spring and have a few of the plants developing now. I'm hoping since they start growing in fall with the wet season that perhaps they can outcompete the weeds that also do that.

      Not all or perhaps not many of the Mellow Yellow Monday posts are garden/flower related, some are paintings, buildings, cars, whatever.
