    2. My fingers always seem to haver a mind of their own, Margaret and I'm sure that the keyboard jumps about out of mischief. That variety is Fireball that is supposed to be less prone to mildew.

    1. It just says gaillardia Arizona Sun, Mark so is probably the same. It's new this year so we will see whether it survives.

  9. Great pictures Sue, Monardas don't do well with me, I find them very prone to mildew, too damp and shady.
