French Drain Bed - Summer


In this heavy soil, the rock rose (Pavonia lassiopetala) requires the free-draining root zone above our underground construction. The little blooms resemble a small hibiscus and similarly last only a day, but her bud numbers are profuse enough to keep the color coming all summer. Although a short-lived perennial, she regenerates from a lot of self-sown seedlings each year.
