Plants in Pots part 2
Pelargoniums. I can never make up my mind about the oft' called geranium. I quite like these though, not so in your face as some of them can be. I might 'overwinter' these and take some cuttings for insurance.
As near to blue as I've seen Verbena. This sits at the edge of the wall by the tobacco drying barn. The daisies behind are 'Mexican Fleabane' , Erigeron karvinskianus, I'm hoping they'll seed themselves about in the stone walls for next summer.
Australian Fan flower, Scaevola aemula. For fear of stating the obvious, I'll not mention that I'm very into blue flowers this year, OK.
Rose William Shakespeare, a David Austin rose.
Finally, below, Imperata cylindrica 'Rubra' or Japanese Blood Grass. This looks really good in a pot and probably deserves better positioning than sitting on my terrace with a possibly overmixed assortment of plants in pots. I think I'm going to take some time out and arrange all of them together a bit more creatively, complimentary groupings if you like rather than the current state of ad hoc kleptomania.
