Happy Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day! We’ve got some stuff blooming in the backyard. You might be thinking, “Hey, that’s a geranium flower. What’s exciting about that?”, but it’s a freak Pelargonium we picked up at a Succulent Society meeting. We still have the tag calling it Pelargonium trigonum, but I can’t find anything on the interwebs about it. I’m thinking maybe it’s Pelargonium tetragonum, it’s gotta be closely related. It has square succulent stems, might be confused for Euphorbia and is weird. I think it would be a lot happier in a different (sunnier/drier) spot, now that I’ve finally took the time to read about it. Here’s a pic of it back in May when it wasn’t getting eaten by a Calceolaria.
Cotyledon orbiculata has been blooming since early April. It just keeps pumping out flowers.
So far my Dahlia experiment has been doing pretty well. No powdery mildew, yet! The cold, damp, drizzly fog is definitely here for Summer.
