|- curry plant -|
What I did find was a couple of curry plants. They remind me of lavender or rosemary with the shape of their leaves, but the smell!! mmmm - exactly like curry!! Too bad these are NOT edible (despite what the tag says). I have to check them out some more in the Internet, as I have already forgotten what, if any, flowers this plant might produce. I do know that they grow quickly & I should be able to take lots of cuttings from them this fall to share with others next spring.
|'Mary Flemming' & 'Blue Baron'|
We shall see what happens with these, although I'm taking strong pro-active 'anti-deer' steps & will put fencing or wire or something around each one!!
The 2 in the foreground (left) are 'Mary Flemming' rhodos. They both have buds & should bloom this year. I am expecting them to be yellow with salmon streaks. I might already have one similar to this that I received as a gift from a friend & planted last year. That one is still in recovery mode as it was not very well cared for & it still might 'not make it'... (fingers crossed).
The 3rd rhodo in the background (right) is a 'Blue Baron' which should produce blue flowers. Yeah... I'm doing more research on that one. I think it will be a compact rhodo while the other 2 should get quite large.
I like the small leaf rhodos - they look very similar to azaleas, but will have the larger rhodo flower. I'll wait a few more weeks before planting them.
