Earwigs are smaller than normal but just as plentiful, and it's been impossible to plant in the ground. In a pinch though, I dig a hole twice as large as I need and fill it half way with dry topsoil or even potting mix to lighten it up a little.
One of my new irises bloomed. It's a spuria iris called 'Highline Coral', and it seems for now to be more of a tan. But any perennial in its first year isn't likely to do what it's capable of. It's certainly different from any other iris I've grown.
The extra moisture seems to be keeping some plants from reaching dormancy, including Dicentra 'Gold Heart', which is usually about gone by now.
The Epimedium, Heuchera and Heucherella are loving the humidity so far, and I love the way they look together.
|Epimedium 'Domino' has new leaves with lots of splotching. It goes really well with Heuchera and Heucherella.|
