Demise Of Compact Holly



This is a picture of Compact Holly Ilex crenata 'Compacta' that I took
in February. The bush on the right I dug up and put
in the back yard to try and nurse it back to life. It got a later start than the
one on the left.  See next photo.

This is a photo of it's demise. It still has some green on it, so
maybe it will come back with tender love and care.

I guess most people are bored by zinnias, but in 100 degree weather
these are the stars of my garden.



I like how they all have different forms.


I pinched the tops of the coleus and stuck them in potting soil to start some more. I had
previously done this - it took about 2 weeks for them to root. I want
to plant them in mass by the 'Firehouse' Nandina.
