    • My new favorite! Ordered late spring and put into the ground on top end of berm, where it receives only rain water. Within 2 weeks it was blooming and it hasn’t stopped since. Fabulous performer in 7b with heat, no rain and high humidity. Must have more for next year.

    • This plant is a stunner! Even in a busy bed full of flowering perennials, there’s no question that this one is the star of the show. The colourful calyxes make such a difference, and the bronze-blue foliage is also a wonderful addition to the bed. Highly recommend.

    • I ordered one of these in the spring to try. Oh, my gosh! I must have more. It is located at the end of a berm in the full sun, where the irrigation is slim to none. It greets visitors as they pull into my driveway. It started blooming in May and I kept waiting for it to stop or slow down, but it has continued to bloom as it grows. Fabulous plant.

    • I purchased 5 quart-sized Meant to Bee Royal Raspberry online last October. These are advertised as a Zone 5-9, and I'm in Zone 10a (Southwest Florida), so I knew I was taking a bit of a gamble - but they were too pretty to pass up! Planted in one of my front garden beds that gets 6+ hours of full sun each day and they thrived with very little attention (just a slow-release fertilizer on planting and supplemental water when they needed it). In a matter of months, they grew to nice 2x2 foot plants and the bees LOVE them. They're a beautiful cool-toned pink, and even the spent flowers look lovely. Will definitely be looking for more places to plant these around my home.
