Two delightful summertime plants caught my eye while watering yesterday. 1. Kangaroo Paw: Packing the proverbial punch
There is one kangaroo paw in the yard at Sprout right now. A prize goes to the first person who buys it. What is the prize? Why the kangaroo paw itself! Come try to find it. Its like “Where’s Waldo”.

2. Astilbe: “Vision in Red”
You need to get close and check out the amazing coloration of the flowers on this astilbe. You may get the song “lady in red… is dancing with me” in your head, but don’t let that confuse you. Its a vision in red!
