Little Red Bed

A mixed bed with porterweed, across a path from pentas, planted to attract butterflies that come across the open space next to a field road.


I’m disappointmented in the chartreuse alternanthera, which has not grown as big nor as brightly yellowish as it would be in more sun.

    The title of this post reminds me of the song Little Red Corvette by Prince. Your chartreuse alternanthera might be a disappointment to you, but those red begoinias are looking mighty fine.

    My chartreuse didn't do much either. The red and purple did great. I tried them all in part sun and full sun. In full sun, the red is marbled. The purple took off. The green, it just sat there. I was thinking maybe it needed more water, but you got more rain than we did. Maybe it was just being fussy this year?
