Rebloom continues in the heat

We have had the driest summer I can remember-one rain in June and two showers of no real substance in July. While areas around me have received substantial rain, my little micro climate remained dry. In spite of the oppressive heat and dryness, many plants shrugged their dhoulders and put up rebloom. Here are a few.

Blushing Escapade-what a plant! You can see the distressed foliage in this bed.

Maryl questioned how it held up in heat-here it is after a 112 heat index day. Yes, the color fades but the form and substance held up well.
