Fox Red Curly Sedge

Fox Red Curly Sedge


I bought a fox red curly sedge last month. I didn't exactly follow the planting instructions and this is probably why it's not looking so good. Do you think it will come back? It's only has a hint of red here and there. Do you think I should cut it back?

Remember my sad little azalea?

Here is is now. I think it's smiling. I know I am :)

And here's the rosebush that some kind soul posted instructions on how to prune. I've never pruned a rosebush before and am really pleased with the results. Thanks again for the help!

rosebush just after pruning. It had started to grow back. And here it is today.

These pix are from the marigold seeds I planted. I wish the flowers were bigger. The ones in the peat pots are going to be planted in the cemetary on Monday, tiny marigolds. This one is in the garden next to a sad little eggplant.

and these are the coleus I started from seeds. They are not growing as well as I'd hoped.
coleus in garden more coleus. The one in the left stayed in a pot on the porch until last week.
I'm being stubborn this year. I absolutely refuse to buy full grown ones from the store. These will have to do. I hope they grow. :)

And finally here is the tire planter out in the front yard. Does anyone know what the flowers on the left are? I put two of the opunta in here too. Keeping fingers crossed they'll make it through the winter this year.
