I hope so Kerry. I am getting a little paranoid as a few of my perennials did not bloom this year. 🤪💙💙

They came back early in the season with lots of lovely foliage but no sign of flower buds. 🤔🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

@hkyfvr maybe they’ll still flower? Still lots of summer left for them to burst into bloom 😁

@pelly @hkyfvr can’t beat blue flowers 😛 the foliage is lovely too. It’s even deeper red now it’s getting colder 😍

Kerry this might be a stupid question but do all those leaves belong to the same plant? Do they start out green and mature to the pink/black leaves?

@gjones not a stupid question at all! The leaves belong to a neighbouring Smoke Bush (Lilla). Now all my plants are establishing they’re all meshing together 😜

I love the colour of the flowers on leadwort but it just won’t survive here! Look forward to seeing yours in full bloom next year.

@gjones I guess it gets just too cold in your winter? Couldn’t pass up blue flowers 💙 and the foliage colours are attractive too
