Rescued from the hot garden most recently: a small amaryllis and some creeping jenny.
I'm hoping the amaryllis will one day be big enough to bloom. It's been struggling in the heat so I'm moving it back inside.
The creeping jenny I bought on a whim this spring and put it in a container with some purple fountain grass in the back garden shrub border. Big mistake. It wouldn't stick a single leaf past the shade of the grass. I don't know how well it will overwinter, but I'm going to give it a shot.
Here are two containers which will stay out until they finish the season with a frost.
A pink verbena on the left (the pink diascia it shared the container with perished in the heat.)
A purple wave petunia on the right.
