Mid-July at Chickadee Gardens

Last week we explored some water-loving plants such as hydrangeas and fuchsias, especially since the weather in the Pacific Northwest has been mild and wet so far this summer. This week we have had a few sun breaks and a bit of warmth so I give you highlights of sun-loving plants mid-July at Chickadee Gardens.
First up, a few plants in the gravel garden. Agastache 'Kudos Mandarin'. I was so impressed with it last year that I planted a second. I really like the compact habit and long color period for this hummingbird mint.
