Tropicana 'Black' is only about 3 ft. tall this year (usually gets over 6 ft) and right now it has one bloom. I like it short and I like the reddish orange color of the flower:
'Tropicana' still has no buds:
Two weeks ago I bought my first hedge trimmer.
It's electric with a 100-ft cord. I'm in love! I have been trimming all my shrubs with just a small Felco hand pruner for over twenty years. I had no idea how easy this would be to use and how fast I could trim all the shrubs. Today I used it to cut down gazillions of daylily foliage. In less than an hour I cut down more than I used to do in a full day's work. Love, love, love this tool!! I am sure you all have something like this already. Nobody but me would do all that hand trimming for so many years without one.
I am going to use this cut down all my perennial foliage this fall!
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
