A few days of sunshine makes all the difference.
Here’s a few photos around the garden this week.
Smilacena on the left and Rhododendron ‘icannotrememberii’ on the right.
Rhodie with Osmanthus ‘Goshiki’ behind it.
Rhododendron ‘Honey Butter.’
Rhododendron ‘Seaview Sunset.’ This is getting some leaf damage from the Azalea Lace bug. I’ll dig this up and move it when it’s finished blooming.
The Camas lilies are coming up.
Rhododendron ‘augustinii’ in the back woodland area. Photo does not accurately show just how purple they are. These were in more sun up front and being attacked by azalea lace bug. According to an OSU report drought stressed rhodies in sun are nearly twice as likely to be infected. So, I’ve been moving my rhodies down the slope to a shady area to see if that helps. Stay tuned.
