TLC plants in bloom

Lavatera "Barnsley"

Tigridia
Lavatera "Barnsley".   Purchased 2 weeks ago, wilted and leaves curled.  Repotted, gave some TLC.  Still on deck.  Starting to bloom.  Should have a lot of flowers. 

With the heat, I'm watering these and the young fig trees daily.   A couple of months of that, and probably that's done.

This fall I can plant this one at the Batttleground place.  That will give it winter to establish roots, and will be mostly care-free next year.  Good plan to reduce effort.

The first of the Tigridias to bloom.  Dramatic.
