June Blooms in my Georgia Garden: Hibiscus coccineus, Swamp Mallow
It's hard for me to believe people continue to spend money on those tropical hibiscus plants every year, when they could buy the hardy hibiscus instead and enjoy the same plants year after year. Hardy Hibiscus is native to the Southeastern United States and...

June Blooms in my Georgia Garden: Sourwood Tree
One of my favorite native trees is the Sourwood. This tree is lovely in all seasons. In Spring, new growth is reddish green and very attractive. Sourwood is sometimes called Lily of the Valley Tree, because in early Summer it is adorned with blooms that res...

June Blooms in my Georgia Garden: Hypericum, St. Johns Wort
Some of the most unusual blooms in my garden are found on the Golden St. Johns Wort, Hypericum frondosum. Clusters of bright yellow blooms cover the shrub in June. The blooms are difficult to describe, but I'll try. The flower looks like a yellow fluffy ba...

June Blooms in my Georgia Garden: Hydrangea arborescens
Voluptuous is the word that comes to mind every time I look at my Annabelle Hydrangeas. Huge bloom clusters can be 10 - 12 inches across and are so heavy that they weigh down the branches. The flower clusters are a pure white, and they hold up well in a vas...

July Blooms in my Georgia Garden: Hibiscus moscheutos
Annabelle Hydrangea isn't the only Southern native shrub with voluptuous blooms. Just take a look at this native Hibiscus! Hibiscus moscheutos displays blooms up to 12 inches across. The blooms on her remind me of the huge dresses worn by Southern Belles on...

June Blooms in my Georgia Garden: Hypericum Tricolor
Another Hypericum in our garden is Variegated St. John's Wort, Hypericum tricolor. This hypericum, is beautiful even when not in flower, but the sunny yellow blooms make it even more special. Blooms on Variegated St. John's Wort are just as bright and sunny...

June Blooms in my Georgia Garden: Bottlebrush Buckeye
When it comes to native shrubs, I have many favorites, and Bottlebrush Buckeye is definitely one of them. Just look at these huge inflorescences--one at the tip of each and every stem! This native plant is one of the most beautiful flowering shrubs in the w...

June Blooms in my Georgia Garden: Althea, Rose of Sharon
I can't believe some of my Altheas are already blooming. Althea, also known as Rose of Sharon, usually blooms here in mid-Summer. I love this plant, but I am always thankful for the blooms that usually come in July and August. I'm not sure what to think or ...

June Blooms in my Georgia Garden: Button Bush
Weird-looking but spectacular are the blooms on Cephalanthus occidentalis, usually referred to as the Buttonbush. The blooms are perfectly round balls or spheres! Buttonbush is native to the Eastern United States and as far west as Texas. Although you might...

We lost our beloved Crisco several months ago. We were treated with compassion and understanding. In the past when we lost a pet, we could not go back to the same vet office--I think partly due to our feeling they lacked compassion for our loss. Not so this time...Dr. Shelnutt really seemed to care, so we continue to take our other animals to him. I wish we had known him sooner. You'll like him.
