I have adopted the courtyard at my church. This Easter our Caan plants that adorned the altar were beautiful. The plants that were not taken by parishioners, I planted in the courtyard. These Marthas were in full bloom Mid June. Four hours sun. I did some research and noticed Marthas like the cooler weather (Spring, Fall). Right now they will be taking a breather – but still lightly blooming and ready for another round of blooms later this summer.
Another cool loving plant in this planter along with the pansies is Diascia (the little pink flower) This planter is at the entrance of Caan’s. Diascia will take a break in the hot and humid weather and regenerate again with cooler weather.
Don’t forget to be faithful and Deadhead!
