During year number one, they were tiny seedlings needing nurturing. After the past two years' DROUGHT-filled summers, this year's rainfall has been a blessing! They loved the extra moisture and they all grew beautifully and bloomed!
As evidenced below.
As the flowers began to emerge, they looked like this!
And finally, like this!!
Just beautiful, don't you think?
However, I've been warned... and I see evidence... that they re-seed Very Easily.

Below we have Ligularia 'The Rocket'
Two weeks ago, I planted Ligularia 'Bottle Rocket.' He desires a little more sunlight, which he will get. He is supposed to grow 28-34" tall - photo of the plant below. We were gone last week. We didn't get the rain predicted, so the plant was pretty "sad looking" when I peeked at it this morning. A good watering and little rainfall improved its outlook. :-)
One more "L" photo - representing two more "L" words!
It is now October 1, and Autumn leaves are beginning to fall! Hmmmm.

If these leaves continue to fall, it won't be Shady around here much longer! ;-)
