Who knows why garden centers fill their shelves with plants that die in the summer's heat?
Or sell plants that take full sun but need tons of water to stay alive.
Do the companies remember that Texas just endured 2 years of drought?
My friend loved these. They might make it until June. I didn't buy a thing.
I'm waiting until late May when the companies bring out the drought tolerant plants.
Water, water, and more water. Don't we ever learn?
Oh well. Mine is not to reason why. Mine is just to not buy anything and write a garden blog...
...and wait until they stock blackfoot daisies, one of our beautiful natives.
Or better yet, my friend has blackfoot daisy seedlings and she's offered to give me some.
Things have improved since December, but water is so precious.
