Received three Dianthus 'Zing rose' (3) and Echinacea 'Magnus' (3).
The Dianthus worries me a bit. I think that this hot dry climate might prove to be a bit too much for these delicate plants. I have seen them in containers around the neighborhood, but I'm putting them in one of the perennial beds in the front yard. Hopefully, with the improved soil texture they will keep watered well enough.
The Echinacea can take dry spells quite easily so it will go where I took the Rose 'Honey Perfume' from in the back yard by the shed.
The Forsythia is blooming! Beautiful yellow leaves on long arching branches.
