Dragon Breath Season


Dragon Breath plants about to bloom
While much of my summer garden is fading, these Dragon Breath are about to bloom.

My garden might be getting just past her prime in late September, but she still has a lot to offer. I started a few of these Dragon Breath from seed last year. They must have reseeded themselves, because this spring they came up all over the place, and I started pulling them like weeds.

I have a flooding problem in this area, but the Dragon Breath has thrived in the spot.

The color is a standout though, so I didn’t want to eradicate them altogether. They have shallow roots, and are pretty tolerant in hot dry weather, which makes them perfect for my erosion zones. They look very dramatic now that they have gotten so large, and will be even more amazing in the next week or so when they start blooming…
