SCARLET SAGE
(Texas sage, scarlet sage, tropical sage, blood sage) is a herbaceous perennial in the Lamiaceae family that is widespread throughout the Southeastern United States, Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and northern Southern America (Colombia, Peru, and Brazil).At one time Brazil was considered to be where it originated, but its diploid chromosome count now points to Mexico as its place of origin.

ERICA - (commonly known as Heather or Heath)

Bursting forth in splendor, the Erica with its upright plumes of brilliant blossoms can be described, truly, as simply elegant. The colorful blossoms vary in size and shape (depending on the variety) from tiny to several inches in length but all the blossoms are exquisite in shape and detail.

MORNING GLORY
-
Morning glory (Ipomoea tricolor) is a member of the same genus as the moon flower. Like its relative, it survives as a perennial in warmer climates and is planted as an annual in northern zones. Heart-shaped leaves line the plant's vines. Amidst the foliage are the morning glory flowers, which are trumpet-shaped and approximately six inches across. Flower color ranges from light blue to deep purple. The opposite is true for morning glory when compared to moon flower: its blossoms close at night and reopen as the sun rises.

Hyacinth




Myth associated with Hyacinth (Interesting)

Hyacinth was a beautiful youth loved by both the god Apollo and the West Wind, Zephyr. Apollo and Hyacinth took turns at throwing the discus. Hyacinth ran to catch it to impress Apollo, but he was struck by the discus as it fell to the ground, and died. A twist in the tale makes the wind god Zephyrus responsible for the death of Hyacinth. The youth's beauty caused a feud between Zephyrus and Apollo. Jealous that Hyacinth preferred the radiant archery god Apollo, Zephyrus blew Apollo's discus off course, so as to injure and kill Hyacinth. Apollo did not allow Hades to claim Hyacinth. Instead, Apollo made a flower, the hyacinth, from Hyacinth's spilled blood.

HOLLYHOCK - The ultimate cottage garden choice, hollyhock sends up tall spires that cover themselves in flowers in beautiful colors. They're easy to grow from seed -- in fact, that's usually the only way they are found in garden centers.
Most hollyhocks are biennials, that is, they grow only foliage the first year, flower the second, and die that fall. However, if you establish a stand of hollyhocks, they'll reseed each year so there will always be plenty blooming. Interestingly, the flowers open from the bottom to the top of the spike throughout the summer.
These tall (up to 8 feet) beauties are ideal against fences or buildings where they can get natural support. Red forms are especially attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies.
