August simply cannot come and go without talking about my Red Heart Althea.
It stands proudly at the far corner of the front porch.
Where you can see the blooms against the summer skies.
And watch the bumblebees and butterflies float from flower to flower.
I love the bright white blooms.
And lovely red centers.
Mine is a tree form, purchased that way.
Altheas are very healthy and disease resistant.
But they are RESEEDERS.
So be ready to have volunteers every spring.
I just pull a few and give the rest to garden friends.
Thanks so much for stopping by....Brooke
