Some of you may remember that this past Spring
the groundhog ate my Cone flowers to the ground
before they bloomed.
They came back but took all summer and are pretty stunted.
I actually prefer them short and compact.
I bought some Dwarfs several years ago.
Home Depot has pots of mixed colors of Cone flowers
so I purchased a couple to replace my Geraniums.
I'm going to use these instead of Mums.
I love Mums but they just don't last and I find myself replacing them
several times by the time Thanksgiving rolls around.
I will plant these in my garden late in the fall.
I hope they don't become Groundhog food.
I may buy a few Mums after I do that.
I don't put those in my garden.
Happy Fall ya'll ! !
