Climbing Golden Showers Rose Bush



This rose bush has been awesome. It has been moved twice because I started with a $7 five-gallon pot. It is now about 6 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide. 
It has been trimmed back several times which helps it to bloom better. It even produces blooms in winter in Texas. It is very fragrant, if I had known how much I would have purchased more of them. The blooms are big and fluffy and range from deep to pale yellow. Tag stated petal count is 27, I've never counted. I do know the petals are double and can get very large, the leaves are dark green and glossy. 

Along with the amazing look and smell the Golden Shower Rose Bush has had a black spot a few times, and the 2020 black spot episode was a little more aggressive. I cut it back several times and applied several treatments. Then after the cold spell a few months back it lost all the leaves. It is recovering nicely.

 


White Angelonia (Angelonia angustifolia)

Angelonia angustifolia
The White Angelonia is very suited to the Texas climate it is one of the easiest plants to grow. There's no need to purchase the larger container because after about 4 to 6 weeks it has more than doubled in size and for the remainder of the season, it continues to multiply. Angelonia's come in a variety of colors. I've seen them in red, white, purple, and pink. They are also known as Summer Snapdragons. They like well-draining acidic soil. Angelonias are considered a perenial. 




The ones below in the pot were a purple color. I started with a small $3 container and by the end of the season, the Angelonia was too large for the pot.











 

Shasta Daisy



I purchased these at my local garden center, It was either Lowes or Home Depot. They were in the little small containers. Daisies always start fine here but then they seem to fade from bugs and heat, but they are pretty while they last.

The picture below is a variety called Crazy Daisy.
