Summer Elevation-II, Four in a Row; G-27

        This is fourth one in this series, and uncovers the diagram of my garden during this extreme summer.
        In this post given accommodation of four different varieties besides three exclusives with links. I like to end the series in view of scheduled tour programme.
        Watch it! a personal effort organised the outcome, under the condition of scorching heat at Dhanbad District, Jharkhand, India...

1. Portulaca: A nice short lived ground cover type plant, also known as ‘Sun rose’ or even Moss Rose. The Portulaca flowers are easy to grow, prefer full sunlight good for high heat. It’s a wonderful plant, having cylindrical foliage which retains moisture.
2. Vinca: Also called ‘Periwinkle’ and is a popular amongst gardeners.  Not only blooms are attractive but their foliage sets the flow of flashy flowers colour. It’s a reliable ornamental plant and colour includes dark violet, white, red, pink  etc. A member of ‘Apocynaceae’ family grows at hot weather, height between 8 to 12 inches, full sun is best for growth.

3. Zinnia: A perennial plant with long stemmed flowers comes in a variety of colour… even multi colour, both miniature and giant variety. It’s a popular garden flower, grown from seeds and full sun, easy to grow at hot climate. The flowers appearances… from single row of petals to the dome shaped variety, a hardy plant with terminal flower heads.

4. Sunflower: A common variety to occupy a garden at summer, there 
are number of species. One of which is dwarf ‘teddy bear’.. Annual plant 
for beds or pots appears as thriller, blooms within 2 months of showing. 
Golden yellow fully double, well arranged and uniform bush, it is 

Teddy Bear! Short lived..

              The Below pictures are Sunflower Common hybrid variety..

5. Kochia: Grace the garden… ‘Bassia Scoparia’ . An erect much 
brunched summer member of Goosefool family, reproduced from seeds. 
The stems are round; leaves are narrow, hairy bright green & pale 
yellow. It adds beauty during summer along with flower plants.

6. Cosmos: A popular garden flower, leaves are simple and 
arranged in opposite pairs, having variable colours. It appreciates moist 
condition...full sun, do not require much care. There are winter varieties. 

7. Bachelor's Button Flower:  A multi-stemmed plant grows up to 1-3 feet with grayish green foliage and yields many flowers through out the summer. The flowers commonly seen in blue, although have pink, white purple, red colours, are small in size with petals flaring out. The blooms are excellent for dry flower arrangements as they retain their colour when dried.

Thanks to watch!

Best of luck.
