The problem is, I have a bad habit of seeing a "new-to-me" plant and bringing it home without checking the little tag, to see it's requirements.
This is Touran,White Saxifraga. I saw it at the garden center, and thought it would look good in the new, sunny garden bed I was making.
Well...maybe not. After checking it out online, I think, in our zone, it's going to require more shade than sun. So, it's going in a big pot in the pine island...I think.
Right now, it's visiting on the kitchen hutch.
I also bought Dianthus, or as my grandmother used to call them, "Pinks". I know their requirements, so no surprise there...
...and, Dusty Miller, which is one of my favorites, because it plays well with lots of plants.
Here's one of the garden beds that we started. We transplanted some sedum from a spot that had gotten too shady, and filled in with some of the Dianthus. I guess I'll have to cover them up Tues. night, since temps in the low 30s are predicted.
The saxifrage will just have to visit a while longer on the hutch, because it looks really tender. If y'all have tips on this plant, let me know. It's so pretty, I'd hate to kill it.
