Good Afternoon! It’s Porch Time!
I haven’t been on my porch this week…….the weather has been cold and grey……Today the Sun shines but with a temperature of 52′. I’ve been itching to get back on the porch and enjoy some New Plants that I’ve purchased… I have 3 to share with you!!
The first one is a Beautiful Begonia!
It has those dark, green leaves and the flowers start off a light yellow and as they open the color becomes a yummy Orange! I have had luck with Begonia’s in the past. I hope it doubles in size thru out the summer.
My second New plant is a Miniature Rose…..
This plant has a beautiful red flower with white stripes. It’s loaded with blooms and buds! The tag that came with it says it’s a “Rosier Miniature Rose”. I will be transplanting it into a larger pot with a trellis. The flowers have a light scent to them.
My 3rd plant I’m pretty excited about! Its a Pixie Patio Grape Plant!
It’s a dwarf mutation with fruit clusters in place of climbing tendrils. It is a small precocious plant that produces dozen of grape clusters!! Perfect for a porch/patio! It can be grown in a 6″-8″ pot! It Only gets 18-24 inches tall! It comes in different varieties of grape kinds. I have the Pinot Meunier. This grape is prized for its fruity flavor! I would like to get a prettier pot for it even though they say it can stay right in the pot it came in. I hope it does well for me!!
I will keep you updated on the plants throughout the summer!
Till next time………
