Red Trumpets | The Hummingbird Corner is Heralding Summer

_______________________________________________________________
_______________________________________________________________


It is difficult to find sunny locations in my backyard. Abundant native oaks and shade from the house and fence reduce the area that I have to plant sun loving plants. On the west side of the house I have planted an area of red trumpets next to my herb garden.



The hummingbird corner is planted with 
  • First to bloom, Cypress vine
  • Flame Anisacanthus 
  • Turk's cap
  • Cuphea

Not yet blooming 
  • Texas Salvia
  • Pineapple sage 
  • Dwarf Pomegranate
























Turk's cap, Texas native and tolerates shade as well as sun.
